Very disruptive children in classrooms
Answered 2 years ago
Has anyone had an experience with this? We have had a child suspended repeatedly like 15+ times, and the child is only year three.. I’m really confused with the path to take and with who can affect this in the public system. I know complaints have been made to the department, by a few parents, the teachers are destroyed and the school is unable to really make any change to fix this in any way..just little care plans in the evident of this or that..... it feels like the headmaster is trapped and unable to do anything being a public system,
The parent is very withdrawn and obviously going through hell, personally and likley the family, but the child is so detrimental to other kids and the drama involved is shocking for little children to see this unfolding.. Has anyone been there?
Have an answer?
I'm aware it's stressful on everyone else, but really what are your complaints going to achieve for the child in question, who also legally needs to attend school?
Eg depression, odd etc can mean the school can access funding and a teacher's assistant.
Adhd diagnosis even medicated, cannot.
Unfortunately, 2nd (NT) child is displaying same behaviour issues.
There are sometimes regional resources, like ED units, which can be utilised in extreme cases.
It varies from state to state of course.
Those who said they could not do anything had all sorts of bad behaviour quite common: from bullying teachers to toxic behaving students.
And it gets worse, not better, until strong action is taken.
This is the perspective of an ex teacher from a public system.
The cost to all the other children in the class is horrendous. The teacher will not have any time to teach, all their time will be spent trying to control or pacify the trouble making child.
Schools are being made to contain ( I was going to say "manage") children who are so disturbed they should not be in a normal school system.
But it is impossible to manage them in what is supposed to be a "learning" environment.
Have child services been called about this ? It certainly needs to be escalated if the school personnel are at their wits end, and the department are abdicating their responsibilities.
And the parent likely needs professional help.
Possibly "A Current Affair" ?
Unfortunately in this modern world that seems to be the only "complaints system" that works. Organisations seem to have no internal complaints system that actually fixes problems, and don't take any action until they are publicly embarrassed into doing so.
Its just abdication of responsibility.
Foreign aid should stop and those funds should be put into support for children who need it. Simples.
