lol thats so dumb if my dad were gone id being on the phone with him every hour of the day
Admittedly, it was a rule and he did break it, but it seems like he broke it having been informed or misled to believe that it was okay.
Annoying, yes, but a suspension isn`t going to kill his school career.
most awkward thing ever! the mom and son were so boring and the reporter was so fired up about it
Make it happen.
1. A rule was made.2. A rule was broke.3. A punishment was delivered.
Is that not how it is supposed to work anymore?
Besides he was not "suspended for talking to his father." Who the drat wrote that line? Fox drating news? Jesus... He was suspended for having a cell phone at school when his school had a rule against it.
If I write a love poem on a large knife while I`m using it to stab someone in face will all you dumbass kids comment on here about how sad it is that I was sentenced to death for writing a love poem?
rofl, fuucking children these days...
Also, I sort of have a problem with the way the story is portrayed by Fox News. Way to totally get the school`s point of view. Now *thats* unbiased journalism!
National attention would help you on the rule change though
1. THey said it was his first time one the phone.2. There is an 8 hour time difference so yes it is difficult to get a hold of him
School can wait, it`ll be there the next day at the same place, same times. His dad isn`t, therefore his dad is more important.
also..."Hold on dad, it`s class time. Talk later!" After school. "-ring ring- Oh hey, dad! What up? I was just- -BLAMBLAMBLAM-.....dad? daddy? OH MY GOD"
Honestly, the marker pen was WAY worse than this.
Anyways this is stupid because, in college, I have had teachers taking phone calls in the middle of class all the time, from thier friends! One went to answer a call 10 mins into the lesson and never came back!!! We have 90 minute lessons at my college too
Thank you saberind.
The kid should have stepped outside of class, OR the father should have contacted the school to page his son. Schools have rules for reasons (that students must follow), and a suspension, in this case, is not too harsh a punishment; the boy knew the rules, and he violated them.
However, suspension is too great a punishment for interrupting a class. They could`ve temporarily confiscated his phone or something.
who gave you your fee education you MTV-watching Ipod listing Pimpface butthole
or did you just skip school. if you did then that explains alot
of course its real it wouldn`t be on here you waste of space.
If the rules are `no cell phones`, then breaking said rules will get you suspended. Deal with it. If you think it`s a bad rule, there are ways you can get it revoked. But to throw a tantrum because you weren`t allowed to break said rule is ridiculous.
I agree totally, children don`t need cell phones. Its just ridiculous. I somehow made it through all my schooling without one safely. The rule that he was suspended for breaking, was one that he had broke more than once.
As for the war.. I support it, our troops, and our president. Do some research before you call it Bush`s oil war, it was Clinton that signed the resolution to put us in war with Iraq, only Bush had to deal with it.
If parents and kids want the rule changed -- start there - but don`t act like an idiot for not understanding why he got in trouble. He got in trouble for violating a rule that was already known and already in place.
The kid and the parent just come out looking like idiots.
Trust Fox to go on the `Back our boys` campaign.
Yeah, go ahead, shout me down.
This will hopefully lead to a change in the rule of some sort, but until that rule is changed, it needs to be enforced.
If it happened to my son, I would have told him he did the right thing, refused any national attention, and worked on changing the rule.
Parents or no, answering your phone in class is just rude.
BTW, as much as I really dislike FOX "news" chanel, props to them for reporting this.
@ Icicle, there`s not even close to enough radiation to even slightly increase that chance.
iawtc. ignorance is ignorance. it wouldn`t have been difficult for him to ask to be excused for a family emergency or to tell his dad to call him back when he wasn`t busy trying to get an education to avoid following his footsteps. i personally hate mobile phones and people who never put them away.
Personally, I never even take my phone to school. However, banning cell phones all the time is a little extreeme. (Did it even mention if he took the call while he was in class or the hallway?) Yes, some people are rude about using their phones in class. Yes, it`s rather annoying to watch people texting behind their books.
In this case, I think, though, it wasn`t such a big deal. He wasn`t talking to his BFF about what`s going on with so-and-so. He was talking to his father.
Although I myself would`ve waited for a more oppurtune time to return the call, I still don`t think that this particular issue merits a suspension.
I`ve had many teachers take phone calls while in class. Rude? Yes. Common? Unfortunately. Our society is forever becoming a more and more casual one. We`ll just have to adapt.
And what would he have missed? Two minutes of class? That`s hardly going to affect his grade or comprehension of the material in his class.
In college do the same thing in small classes in large lecture halls you can just walk out for a second.
About the video, Jesus Christ wtf is wrong with that school. They even talked to the dad beforehand, and they still suspended the kid. And ONLY replied after the thing was aired! Horrible bastards. They should be burned.
It should never "be fine" to use a phone or take a phone call when you are in the middle of something, especially school.
When did it ever become ok to say in the middle of a conversation "o, sorry, I`ve got to take this."
Our lives have become governed by beeps and stupid rings.
People cannot demand our attention when it suits them, there are times when it is great to have a phone on your person, but that time is yours not the person who`s ringing. Especially when you are in the middle of something - especially in school.
While I sympathize with this case - read my earlier post - I hate mobile phones and think they make people rude and inconsiderate.
Mark my words, though, somebody will leave a message in direct response to me, even though I won`t be reading it. :P
There is no reason whatsoever to be taking text messages or phone calls during class. None. If something is that important, the people can call the school, and the school can relay it to the kid if they deem it necessary.
Oh, and I hate to point this out, but there`s a reason that an education is necessary. If you don`t get a proper education, you might end up having to join the army and fight a meaningless war.
Oh yeah. That`s right. I went there. I called today`s soldiers a bunch of ignorant idiots that support a useless war. Years ago, when they became soldiers for a good cause and were dragged into it, I would have said differently. But if you`re there now, it`s because you chose to be there. And if you chose to be there, you support a meaningless
If a parent needs to talk to his child, they should be able to. Especially in cases where the child doesn`t see their parent often. As long as the phone call doesn`t disrupt class, it should be fine.
Honestly, I don`t understand why schools are Nazis about the cell phone policy. As long as people aren`t talking on them in class (just excuse yourself out of the classroom), it should be fine.
I hate schools.
I think it should be allowed to use your phone during breaks in between classes if its with your parents, are you kidding?!
The U.S. sends its people to "help" people get a better life while their own society falls apart.
"Fighting for peace" is an oxymoron.
PULL OUT - oh sorry, you can`t can you, because you`ve got to finish what you started, even though you can`t.
We may all, justifiably, cry "FREE TIBET" from Chinese oppression
how about "FREE IRAQ" from U.S. oppression
No wonder your kid can`t handle talking on the news or even his own stress.
As long as you don`t start talking on your cell to your friends while the teacher is giving a lecture, whats the big deal with getting a call and asking to be excused so you can take it.
sorry i couldnt resist its almost to easy
lets see then if they dont allow to take their calls
F U C K the authority
