Hobo Teacher reacts to a new school policy requiring that teachers “document” any instance when a student goes out to the hallway. This includes, he surmises, not only when they are sent out for disciplinary reasons but also when they are just making up a quiz, going to the restroom, or blowing their noses--although “there have been no requests, so far, for saving the used tissue as evidence. ...”
In any case, he’s not wild about the added paperwork:
I really don't get it. Why don't they just get it over with and inject tracking devices into the students' blood streams. That, or just beat the teachers over the head with a baseball bat. That would be preferable at this point.
