Daily Hearld reporting a 9 year old child striped to his underwear and locked in a room at school.

Could it happen here?

What is next if they get by with that?

Just read the article or better yet buy a paper and read could it be your child next?

Better listen to your children and better know what goes on at school or any where involving Children!

his mother said she did not think our education system would do that well who knows any more
What a world we live in.

How many schools have such seclusion rooms with no inside handle, no window and covered door glass?
Sounds like a jail cell to me.
May be all parents should ask the schools if these rooms exist in any of our schools and what is school policy when it comes to removing children’s clothing if that really happened then it seems such a disgrace.

Never in a million years would i though that could happen in schools near here.

Just never know thou.

Here is the link read the article,

Such a shame we as a county have become to this.

Who is watching our children?

Thank Goodness for Newspapers to keep the public informed!
What would happen behind closed doors, have enought faith in your children to always talk and listen to your children and be sure to check and see.

Someone tell me that the taking of a 9 year old child’s clothes down to their underwear and locking him in a empty room with a black X on the floor in a public school system in the State of Tennessee did not happen by any school official or even have such a room in the schools of the public schools of United States where is freedom where or person rights where is dignity that someone 9 year old child can be done in such a manner.

If it did happen as the article read then Fire the official, Principle, and any one involved that agreed to this and reprimands the director of Schools and School Board.

Two strikes against Maury County that is known, for in the past the problem of the Sex Crazy SRO attacking a young boy back in 2000, who pleaded guilty and now this.
Who is hiring these people in the schools are we going to get to the point of having too requiring a mental evaluation of all people working with children to keep our children safe?

Talk and listen to your children check for yourself we can not rely on the system totally any more.

Do the Marshall County Schools have what might be called Seclusion Rooms, that they can lock from the outside with no inside door handle and can they dress your child down to their under ware possibly take pictures or monitor with a surveillance camera?
If a school system can do that to a boy can they also do that to a girl?
If they can do that to a 9 year old can they do that too and 17 or 18 year old?
Why not call seclusion rooms a jail cell, animal pen, detention center, concentration camp or Nazi justice?
Talk and listen to your children know what is going on, be well informed.
Stand up for childrens rights and dignity.

Changing world folks, but if he was not found toting a gun, kid should of been sent home or back to class. Or should he? I don't believe in beating a child, but kids today have no respect for adults.

First, the child had an apparent disability or he would not have been in the class that he was in. For those of you who have not been in a program at school with children with disabilities, you have no clue. When I say disabilities, I mean any range from learning to mental. There are schools here in Marshall County with padded rooms and yes, children have been placed in them. Did you know that we have had children be removed from schools by the police and have had police escort students to school? If the child made threats that he was going to hurt himself, maybe removing his clothing was for his safety. He was confined to a room and other students did not see him. Get all of the facts before you start casting judgement. Unless you have been in a classroom with children who have "problems" you really do not understand the extent to which the problems can go.
Before you go all Bubba and make goober statements, step back and get the facts. To make stupid assinine threats about "if it were my kid, I'd.." think about this: do you think that a teacher would remove his clothes for no reason and risk all she has gone to college for (at least 4 years) and give up her career just becasue she wanted to take his clothes off without a justified reason.??

The public Schools are not the judge, jury, jail or mental institutional system and human free rights don’t stop at the school house door!

Call it what they will
Taking of a children’s clothes, Strip Searches, Own protection, Perverted Justice, Sex nuts, Mental protection, the truth is it could fall under all of those as to the mind of the person ordering the taking of children’s clothes.
What has society come to as to even have seclusion rooms or the taking of children clothes with out providing proper covering in a public so called free world school system.
Disgrace Disgrace Disgrace!

“When the Nazis came for the communists, I said nothing; I was, of course, no communists
When they locked up the social democrats, I said nothing; I was of coarse no social democrat.
When they came for the trade unionist, I said nothing; I was of course no trade unionist
When they came for me, there was no one left who could protest.”
Martin Niemoller

How we as adults allow our or others children treated in the public school system or growing up in life, is how our future society will conform too, so if you can see yourself or your child or grand child placed in the same situation later in life and think it is right well go right ahead, give away their rights and lose your rights.

Give children’s Rights away
You will lose your own rights that way.
Our future is our Children.

As long as mentally challenged kids are taught in the same schools as other kids you will have problems such as these arise. If he was a harm to himself or others what could they do? I know the padded rooms are a fact and true and needed. Special education teachers should get much more credit than they ever will with all they have to deal with. You would not believe some of the things these kids do. Children do have rights but teachers have the right to be safe and to make it safe for the rest of the students by placing the harmful student in a saferoom. Unless you have seen it firsthand you really have nothing to comment about.

What could they do, well first remain calm, defuse the situation, maintain and show respect at all times, call the parents or a family member explain and discuss any options, while the child is in the care and presence of a school official till the parent or family member arrives and then if no agreement can be made, expel the child and home bound teach as options after doctors evaluation or recommendation.
The child could be provided a chair in the front office under total supervision till the parent arrives and if control or the situation cannot be defused or escalates then call the police let the Law handle it.
Where is the safe room that the teachers are put in when they have a mental break down and how safe are our children when a teacher goes off their rocker and molests a child?
Children are not the only problems that the school system has, there are over bearing, fruit cake teachers as well, have you ever seen one of them whipped or stuck in a padded room at school?

Your posts prove you are ignorant of what the padded rooms are for.They also prove you have never dealt with a child who in violent and out of control. Good for you, just keep on shittin' rainbows and sunshine until reality smacks you upside your big head one day.

When we see that a child is in pain, we can be a "neighbor" or Good Samaritan to him. We can minister to that child, caring for his needs until they are well taken care of, rather than ignoring his cries and walking away. This can include children other than one's own, such as intervening when a child is being hurt or neglected. Caring for a defenseless child is one way to be a good neighbor.

Jesus thought very highly of children, as shown by this example: At that time the disciples came to Jesus and asked, "Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?" He called a child, whom he put among them, and said, "Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Whoever becomes humble like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. Whoever welcomes one such child in my name welcomes me." Matthew 18:1-5

I suggest you do something besides post on topix and volunteer at the school. There are those that try to tell others how to do something and those that actually do something. We know which category in which you belong.

I know, leave his clothes on him and see if he eats the buttons, hangs himself, or whatever idea that his problem mind could come up with. Unless you have dealt with a violent-emotionally dusturbed child, how in the world do you know what it was like and how you would react. Go ahead and fart some skittles cause the world is not perfect.

Well how about this situation says you get a perverted teacher and there are some of those you do know, who decides on their own to take away all little boys and girls clothes in a secluded room at the public school?
Children's clothes should remain on them and if an adult thinks a child is capable of harming themselves, then the child should remain under adult supervision till the parents arrive, fully clothed.

People should not decide on their own to break or take others rights to Freedom when no laws have been broken.

When I was in second grade, my teacher swatted me with a pretty good sized paddle thing.

I really don't remember why. But......

My grades got better.

I graduated high school and college.

I respect the laws of man and God.
and those in positions of authority, if
they are not idiots about it.

I also learned common sense along the way.

I have never been to jail or arrested.

So is the seclusion room a bad thing?
Let's just watch and see how this works out.

We stopped swatting problem kids in school and at home when problems were small
and now the silly rabbits don't fear anything or anyone. Jails are full.

And they don't fear man or God.

No harm, no foul.
