Letters: Out-of-control classrooms

Re “U.S. schools remain plagued by racial inequity, data show,” March 23

Why blame the schools for the high rate of preschool (or any school) suspensions?

The classroom must be manageable, with the teacher in control. When a child is disruptive, it takes a disproportionate amount of the teacher's time and energy and the learning environment for other children is spoiled.

Because schools and teachers have no authority these days and are in fear of being sued, the recourse is to remove the disruptive child from the classroom.

Where in the article was there a mention of parents and their responsibility to teach their children discipline and respect? When will we hold the parents, not the schools and teachers, responsible for their children's behavior?
