Fla. sheriff: Students no longer fear getting ‘a– cheeks’ ‘torn off’, need new discipline policy


What the dogs that love gravy is going on in Florida.  This Sheriff is saying kids are not being beaten enough and don’t fear adults hitting them enough these days.  Last week I posted of the 80 year old elected to the school board that wanted more spankings / corporal punishment used on disabled kids.   Is this the return to spare the rod spoil the child Christian way of teaching?  Notice the school board went hard right in the last election.    But notice the district has not written the policy yet and this new strict discipline was announced by law enforcement from a jail, not from the school system.   Why does it take an emergency meeting to draft new policy?    Does the school to prison pipeline need more slaves?   Is the school about to be overrun with liberal students demanding their rights?    Hugs

Days after the Brevard County School Board ousted the superintendent, plans are underway for a new school disciplinary policy in Brevard Public Schools.

Flanked by Sheriff Wayne Ivey and State Attorney Phil Archer, School Board Chairman Matt Susin went on camera Monday in front of the Brevard County Jail in Sharpes to announce plans to impose the “most prolific school discipline policy this district has ever had,” Local 10 News partner WKMG in Orlando reports.

“It’s a new day,” Ivey repeatedly said throughout the announcement.

Susin did not say what this policy would include. He said he was calling an emergency meeting for next week to draft the policy with input from Archer’s office, Ivey, and the teachers and school staff unions.

Members of the media were not invited to ask questions about what the district plans to do.

The current student code of conduct was approved by the Brevard County School Board, including Susin himself, in February 2022.

Ivey said the new disciplinary policy was necessary because teachers and administration were handcuffed by the current student code of conduct from dealing with students.

“They know nothing is going to happen to them,” Ivey said. “They know they’re not going to be given after-school detention, they’re not going to be suspended, they’re not going to be expelled, or like in the old days, they’re not going to have the cheeks of their a– torn off for not doing right in class.”

Ivey said the school discipline situation is so bad that the district is losing teachers.

A representative from the union for school bus drivers and other school employees said staff members were being hurt by students.

“The instructional assistants that are in the classrooms are choked, they’re bitten, they’re scratched. It’s an everyday occurrence,” said Delores Varney with IUPAD Local 1010. “And they’re so discouraged because nothing is ever done with the students, or at least it appears there is nothing being done. If it is, it’s taking way too long to remove these bad students from the classrooms.”

According to the most recently released student discipline data from the Florida Department of Education, Brevard Public Schools reported few student expulsions in the 2020-2021 school year — fewer than 10. However, there were 2,518 in-school suspensions, 4,457 out-of-school suspensions, 435 students placed in an alternative educational setting and 139 students who were physically restrained.

News 6 in Orlando has asked why members of the media were not invited to the announcement Monday. We are also asking the Brevard County Sheriff’s Office why it spearheaded the announcement rather than the school board, and held it at the jail.

This is the latest major change since voters approved new school board members in August and November. Within weeks, the school board entered separation negotiations with Superintendent Mark Mullins, who had been an employee with Brevard Public Schools for nearly 30 years, saying the district needed new leadership.

Take a good look. What is happening in Florida is what the Nazis want for the rest of us

I’m sure that beating kids is not the reason that school shootings are less common in Canada or Australia or other places where mass shootings are rare.

This is a case where ad hoc conclusions are manufactured to fit a political agenda, not based on science.

They truly believe prayer and beatings are needed to reduce gun violence because it has increased from the last 50 years or so, when guns were less available and then they blame the rise of libruhl politics, especially gay rights and feminism for the rise of incels andof unstable families.

Christofascist ‘religious freedom’ and ‘parental rights’ to have the MAGA party beat other people’s kids for nonconformity.

  1. Hi Scottie;
    I got really excited about this for a moment. It sounded like he was saying he was going to hold people accountable. It sounded like he was saying that rules and laws broken would hold consequences. I was gratified to hear it! Imagine all these cops that decide your rights are irrelevant being held accountable rather than knowing no one is going to do anything about it. Imagine finally arresting Gaetz? Imagine finally arresting Trump for … oh, gees, not enough space. Imagine holding adults who SHOULD know better accountable?!!!? Imagine the powerful being held to expectations of society? I was excited!
    Oh, wait. This was all just a dog and pony show.

  2. I remember school swats. Girls were never swatted until 1970 when we were allowed to wear pants instead of dresses, but I’m not aware of girls being swatted, ever (speaking only for schools I attended.) My home room teacher that year was a former American History professor who’d served in WWII. He gave swats, though not liberally by any stretch. The guys would hand off their billfolds to the swattee so that both of those cheeks had coverage. The paddle had a far worse reputation than was deserved, according to all 4 guys who got swats that year. The paddle was our teacher’s fraternity paddle, and there were 3 1″ diam. holes in it, supposedly to give more strength to the swing. Only 2 of those guys got swats twice because they forgot about it over the year. Anyway, the point of that reminiscence is that while most teachers who gave swats by no means abused or humiliated anyone in that year, but I know that varies by school policies, etc. Most teachers I knew were relieved when swats were disallowed.
    As an adult, I think it’s putting too much pressure on already overworked, underpaid public educators trying to work with an impossible amount of information to transfer into student heads with curricula that’s mostly just counter-active, anymore. The guy should be complaining about families not teaching their kids to behave (although he’d get another rant from me about that, especially in light of what Scottie’s informed us of social services in FL.) I agree, Scottie; it’s the school-to-prison pipeline in action. I could go on and on about this, but it’s bedtime already and I just got here.
    I hope all is well with everyone here!


      1. And I will add that my viewpoint above omits the obvious that non-family adults hitting kids when their family isn’t present should simply not ever happen. If the same adult hit another adult, it would be a battery crime. Talk about a throwback, when kids (and women, etc.) were chattel instead of people!
