    Dad Says Principal Duct-Taped Son's Pants



    <!-- TextStart -->

    DUNLAP, Ind. - The father of a seventh-grader claims an assistant principal came up with a bizarre way to keep his son's pants from sagging in school: duct tape.

    Scott Allison told the Concord School Board earlier this month that his 12-year-old son, Spencer, was ordered by a teacher to lift his shirt after she noticed the boy's underwear was showing above his pants, a violation of Concord Junior High School's dress code.



    She sent him to Assistant Principal Patricia Walters, who told Spencer to pull up his pants and tuck in his shirt, Allison said.



    "She then proceeded to duct tape his waist, three times around the waist," said Allison. "Then she sent him back to class, in front of his peers."



    He said he worried his son would be mocked by his classmates at the school in the town about 20 miles east of South Bend.



    "This outrages me and shocks me," Allison said.



    Allison also said that Spencer's underwear would not have been exposed if the shirt was left down. "I don't understand what motivated her to ask him to lift up his shirt," he said.



    Board President Randall Myers said the board would not discuss personnel issues in public. Junior high Principal Kevin Caird said student discipline is confidential.

    Yup...a day out means no extra-curricular activities...sports, clubs, nada until the next 9 weeks. They do anything to avoid that

    Wow, I'm surprised that no sissy-fuck parents have sued you guys yet for "violating my child's right to social development". :roll1: I could never be a teacher, 'cuz I'd be in jail by now...

    See in our situation, the parents do not want the kids at home during the day. School is the only type of discipline these kids get...if parents do complain, the principal will compromise in a situation, but most of the time, the parents don't say a word. I have my boys doing push-ups in class, on extra duty around school (trash pickup, cleaning, etc), and handle everything "in house" in the classroom. With kids who have so little, they know if you are real with them and care about them ...then they love you to the death. They appreciate the smallest gestures. I'm telling you...this is an easy job to come to everyday. When a kid knows you aren't coming up with these punishments to embarrass them but instead to help them...they are willing to do what it takes.

    Now my players don't get such options....they pay dearly at practice
