Parental Unit Shows Offspring How to be Mature

You wonder why our kids are so screwed up? It is because of the fine examples of maturity that they are exposed to.
Police say the mother and daughter walked into Williams' classroom and began arguing with the teacher. Williams asked them to leave but the mother pushed past the teacher and grabbed a book off her desk, police say.

When Williams, 40, tried to get the book back, the mother pulled the teacher's hair and threw her to the ground, the report said. Then the mother and daughter stomped on the teacher, according to the report.

Williams, a first-year teacher at Southside High, teaches video broadcasting, Manguno said. She has not returned to the school since the attack, he said.
Thankfully, both mother and daughter have been arrested and charged and who knew teaching kids how to make YouTube videos could be so dangerous.
The attack occurred on February 28, so I wonder what took the police so long to make an arrest in this case? I have no doubt that the school board and members of the administration were doing all they could to make this go away so they wouldn't have to report the incident and risk being put on the list of schools labeled as being in trouble as required by the No Child Left Behind legislation. More and more, school administrators are abandoning their teachers in the classroom in the sake of making the metrics in the NCLB legislation. Soon the teachers union is going to have to decide who they represent. Is it the teachers or the administration?
