...I remember riding the schoolbus everyday and I seem to remember that there was always a target for insults...maybe not as crass as the ones heard in this vid but relatively the same...the bus driver was sometimes the target, but only wispered between us kids as he'd kick the shit out of us if we'd said it loud enough for him to hear... keep in mind that 20 years ago that woman would probably have beaten the shit out of those kids and been supported by the school and the kids parents for it...

racial discrimination used to be normal. it became an issue and now its accepted as being a negative thing.
its a sign of the kids are not learning 'proper values and respect' and its a social problem , rooted in the same place as racism.
and needs to be addressed as such
2. Have an intervention at the school(s) with appropriate punishments.
3. Make the students publicly apologise to the lady.
You know, that stuff we learnt about when we were becoming teachers.
I sleep in the daytime, I
Work in the night time, I
Might not ever get home
so a student sez 'fuck you' to you ,do you blow it off and say its just normal. or do you deal with it ?
You'd have to be an idiot to take that job and be unaware of the shit you'd have to eat every day...your perspective seems to be derived from some utopian world that you inhabit where children are little angels and show nothing but respect and admiration for their elders...or could it be the lingering effects of the recent Wai Kru celebrations at your school?...
Try and understand, Billy...they do it because they have to...not because they want to...it's not real you understand...
I thought the kids on the bus were not direct enough, too polite. Lame insults.
I've said it a hundred times...if you walk into a classroom looking for respect or demanding it...then you don't belong there...
If you're looking for respect it's only because you have none for yourself...if you respect yourself...then a child saying fuck you does not harm you personally and you're able to understand that childs motivation...
Conversely, if you walk into a classroom lacking in respect for yourself and are confronted with anyone saying fuck you...then you will take it personally and it will harm you in direct proportion to the amount of self respect that you lack...in that wounded state of mind you are more likely to over react and lash out in a negative manner...seeking recourse through some form of discipline which invariably disrupts the class robbing the balance of the students who didn't insult you and focusing all attention on the kid who only did it to illicit that exact response....
Thereby having allowed yourself to be outwitted by a 10 year old...

I didn't watch the whole video because it is distressing how fucking nasty kids are... one of my biggest regrets in life, which still bothers me today, is that I once joined in with my school 'friends' at shouting abuse to "cross roads chris". He was a guy in his early 40s who had been labelled as the town nut. It wasn't until years later, when I was a bit more empathetic, that I realized how much of a self fullfilling prophecy it was
