It’s been some times since I have had the pleasure of working the ISS room dear friends. And, no, it does not stand for In School Socialization, but rather it is supposed to be the acronym for IN SCHOOL SUSPENSION. One would think that it’s a form of punishment, yes?
I walked in sixth period, and there were four students,two girls and two boys.
The boys were completing the work that was assigned to them from their teachers.
The girls were doing work….along with have a junk food fest. I’m talking chips, bottles of soda, bags of candy…it was like a diabetic’s nightmare. BUT, they were doing work, quietly. Fine.
TWO ADDITIONAL BOYS COME IN.
They are supposed to be completing a vocabulary test.
I give them the test….tell them to sit on opposite sides of the room…and complete it.
“I’m not doing that.”
No? Ok fine, I guess you get a zero. The response?
“Fine give it to me.” Boy #1 Then proceeded to HAND IT TO ONE OF THE GIRLS AND ASK HER TO DO IT FOR HIM.
Scary part? She did.
And after the incredulous stares, the warnings, the recommendations to STOP CHEATING AND DO IT SOLO….
They continued to cheat.
Sometimes I wonder if I speak English….
Anyway, I spoke to the teacher, and they got a zero.
Sad part? I don’t think they’ll learn from their mistakes….
* During this time…another boy was brought in by security.
I asked him, where are you supposed to be? Business marketing.
Why aren’t you there?
I’m not going to class, I hate it.
So what, you just came here, to the suspension room, ON YOUR OWN?
Well, yeah, I mean, security knows to bring me here, cause I just won’t go to class.
