    I dont see why people are freaking out so badly over the fact that he had his phone out in the middle of class. There ARE students who have the mental capacity to listen to the teacher and use their phone at the same time O__o

    The thing is, just as the OP was in the wrong; in teaching there is a level of professionalism that you have to show in the classroom. There is a line between what is acceptable and what is not acceptable; threatening to break someone's property is not acceptable. Nor is the threat of physical harm acceptable in this day and age. There is no real discipline allowed in the schools anymore.

    It's a shame too, that's why there are so many disrespectful people in the world. Even if there is discipline at home, there is none in the schools anymore. It's pretty sad that cops get called and kids get led out in handcuffs for a simple fistfight these days, but that's modern school discipline. In my day, you'd have your brawl, go to the principal, and sit in detention for a couple of hours each night for a week. Now the schools don't want to handle anything. And who can blame them, with frivolous lawsuits being the norm?

    Its not even like I live in a bad neighborhood. I live in Fontana, California now. In the Suburbs and stuff like this happens on a daily. I use to go to school in Inglewood and Id say alot of things are worse at the school I go to now. The main thing Id say is worse is drugs and sex. People have sex all over the school and occasionally in the open (They are caught most of the time though).and The only drug I haven't seen being done in a classroom is Heroine. Like my school doesnt have gangs or anything like that. Its a bunch of spoiled kids who dont know how easy they got it so they break rules. And dont think its just my school. Im willing to say majority of the High Schools and even Middle Schools in the country are like this. Even in the best of neighborhoods. But Parents arent aware. My parents don't know this goes on at my school and wouldn't expect it and same goes for most parents.

    My suggestion to parents and future parents is get involved in your childs school like join PTA and stuff like that, and talk to your kids about stuff like this. Trying to hide them from it won't work. You gotta expose them to it and let them know its wrong. For example if you never talk to your kid about sex and his or her girlfriend or boyfriend tries to have sex with him or her how will they know what to do. You cant expect your kids to come to you. I wish my Parents were more involved but Id never tell them that.

    I went to Catholics school. Now if Sister Mary Knuckles caught me with a phone, which we didn't have in my day she would take the phone. Then she would make me hold out my hand, knuckles side up, and hit me with a ruler. Not those plastic ones they have today but a real wood one.

    And then I would get my phone back. At the end of the year.

    I'm only 30 so I'm not too disconnected from that world. However, my wife is a professor and she deals with this all the time. It is disrespectful. I don't care but my only beef is that this same kids enter college expecting to behave the same way and expect their hands to be held. Not! My wife often bounces off stuff about students etc and I tell her to be a hard ass. Her rule is if you have your phone out during a test/quiz you automatically get an F. She knows who is on their phones, ipods, laptops etc and not paying attention. Inevitably those students come to my wife at the end of the semester begging for extra credit etc. Guess what? They don't get it. I could go on and on. You should see some of the emails. Some even call my wife by her first name which is also disrespectful since she is a Dr. She worked hard to earn that title and so did I in paying for it.

    Best thing is that the Dean and Uni. President back her 110%. The best is when the parents come *****ing at my wife and she shuts them down. She tells them their child is an adult and she cannot discuss their academic progress with them. They threaten to go to the Dean etc etc.

    Look, I know there are bad teachers out there but most are not. They don't get paid alot and often times work at home long after class is over and they take time away from their families. They go the extra mile for the students that need it. I know it firsthand.

    Bottom line: 10 years from now the kids you hoped thought you were cool will be a distant memory.

    I get what your saying Texas. Even now I don't feel my teacher is. A bad teacher she's actually pretty good and when I appologized to her it was sincere and I'm sure she knew it. She just had a bad day.

    Actually there's a fantastic scientific calculator app called Mathdroid that I used on a Chemistry Test about 30 minutes before the incident. But my girlfriend is going through some things and I was texting her when it happen.

    cant believe im saying this (im only 26) but its not a matter of your mental facilities its a matter of respect to the teacher or just anyone. Or it could be a distraction for those who dont have those facilities. (^_^)
