While I respect a female in fear, there is something wrong with the behaviour, and the fiscal consequences of the choices of this student. I hope her parents are receiving the bill for all costs incurred in this debacle. I feel very, very sorry for the teeacher. No wonder we can't keep wonderful teachers in the public schools. One can only hope the parents dole out consequences at home, like good parents should.

She should be in detention for the rest of the school year. Why do they have phones when they should be paying attention in class. I feel bad for the teacher and think the administration should be ashamed for not supporting their attempt to have students pay attention in the classroom. What a little bully she must be!
