Girl, 5, expelled from school (UK)

I don't doubt the kid was misbehaving as described, but shouldn't someone official be looking into her home life?

Girl, 5, expelled from school
A five-year-old girl has been expelled from school after allegedly attacking teachers and pupils.

But Tamara Howard's mother said staff had given up on her daughter "when she's still only a baby".

The child was kicked out of Old Moat School in Withington, Manchester, and is the youngest child to be permanently excluded in the city, Manchester City Council says.

According to a letter, Headteacher Merna McVeigh decided to expel Tamara three weeks ago over fears she could "seriously harm the education and welfare of pupils and others".

The school accuses Tamara of hitting her teacher "several times on the arm, leaving cuts and bruises", when she was asked to tidy up some toy bricks.

It is also claimed she attacked six staff members during a previous tantrum.

Yeah, but then again, it's like the school systems out here "Oh, your kid is dyslexic, here let me move them into the lowest rung of the vocational ladder".

"Excuse me?"

Etc.

Perhaps the workhouses?

Yes, she's a teacher. She works with behaviorly and emotionaly disturbed kids. She gets great results though, because she is so patient and understanding.

Abdul, Withington is not an area where teachers have an easy life. See here for more details.
Shit happens. The older you get, the more often shit happens. So you have to try not to give a shit even when you do. Because, if you give too many shits, you've created your own shit creek and there's no way out other than swimming through the shit. Oh, and fuck.

No, they really meant Girl 5, who is Girl 6's predecessor. You don't even want to know what happend to Girls 1-4. Girl 6 worked out pretty well, but we're currently working on Girl 7, who will be a lot like Girl 6, only with more features and she'll get 45 miles per gallon, so we're pretty psyched.

There's a stiletto remark somewhere in there that I'm not skilled enough to place.
When one considers that our planet is doomed, at least as far as life is concerned, it is impossible to put meaningful value on the titanic forward struggle of life on Earth through billions of years. This struggle, whether conscious or not, appears agonizingly futile if the gigantic mass contribution can not be perpetuated.

Then pick up the toy bricks, and stop whining about it. Sheesh.



Seriously though, someone shoud look into her home life (as was said earlier) she is getting this from somewhere.

No, cattle prods are for exciting sexual adventure time.

Razor straps, and small closets with locks on the doors are for punishments.
