Iíve been in the game for a while and this year has so far been a huge test and challenge for me. Not sure if itís just my campus or district but student behavior is awful. Top to bottom, awful. Basic human skills are gone in many students. Impulse control is bad, looking at someone when they speak to you is bad. Listening skills are bad. Commitment to a task or activity is a thing of the past. And every grade level is mentally and academically behind where 6th graders act like 4th graders 7th graders act like 5th graders and 8th graders act like 6th graders. Iíve never experienced anything like this and have never had to refer and call parents and deal with this many discipline problems ever. It has gotten to a point in the school where there are multiple fights a day/week on campus. I donít know what to do anymore and am at a breaking point. I am absolutely beat down every day to the point where I donít know if this is something I want to do anymore, which is insane because this (band/music) has been ingrained in my life for almost 20 years in some way or another. I know itís Rona related but is there a way out of the nightmare? Will it get better or are we stuck with unsocialized children of the corn for the foreseeable future? This is mostly a rant but, any thoughts, advice?
