    Sort of off topic, but there are kids being raised now that have no idea how to take criticism. One of my nieces quit her fast food job after some of what I consider very gentle coaching.

    and I did not have the only say in the matter (most people just want it done ASAP and don't care about quality).

    If anything we made a better decision because we had a consensus and were all on the same page.

    It's actually a super interesting topic since data shows teen suicide rates have been going up year on year..



    Link: https://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/volumes/66/wr/mm6630a6.htm

    I think a big part of it is that before the bullying was only in schools, atleast a majority of it was, now with all the kids in social media the rates have gone up a lot since it's just not something you can escape, I remember when I was younger I was a complete shit to a lot of other kids, it was just nothing that would cross my mind it made me feel "Cool"

    When I was much younger though in grade 2-5 I remember I did get bullied a lot as well, maybe that played some role in my actions when I got older or I was just an arrogant asshole, but the numbers really shocked me when I read about it.

    I think it's just being a teenager. Some kids just learn to deal with it better and earlier, some it takes a bunch of attempts. I remember a bunch of people I grew up with who were super shitty (or super assholes) in their jobs. Others would crush it at the same place.

    The issue seems to be that we're using pretty broad strokes to judge kids by and we're becoming those "kids these days"-types.

    "kids these days" is a sentiment that never goes out of style. Has been cool for several hundred years.

    I thought Marilyn Manson caused teen suicide. How could it still be a thing?

    I had a chat with the principal of the local elementary school who admitted that they went too far in the direction of constant praise. It ruined generations of kids. Now they're on Twitter screeching away. They try to teach the kids resilience and coping when things don't go your way.

    I think thatís a very uncommon mentality within the CBE.

    To me, itís telling when 4/6 of the close group of teachers my wife went to school with outright refuse to consider sending their kids to a CBE school, they all see how the direction and mandates from the board is ruining kids.

    The big one is the board wide mandates for inclusive classrooms ( Meaning keeping kids with severe learning and behavioural disabilities or canít speak English in with the rest of the classroom ). You can imagine how much educating of students 1-32 is being done when a teachers entire day is spent teaching student 33 English, wiping drool off the chin of 34, and trying to make sure student 35 doesnít stab someone with scissors.

    3) kids being excluded from all social activities because they dont have an iphone and their class only talks via imessage
    Not only does this happen to my friends who don't have iPhones now in my 30's, we continually bully them for being poor on top of that.

    This does concern me, as well. I don't think the ESL kids are as much of a burden as many would think, but there needs to be a better strategy for the morons and the psychotic.
    If you can't legibly print your name in Grade-1, then your "magical and super special journey through learning" is a fucking F. Not a ticket to Grade-2, not any other horse shit. F.
    If your kick a girl in the back and stab someone with scissors, you should go straight to an episode of Scared Straight. No talking about your feelings, no companion doggie, no modified schedule. Go directly to jail, and watch someone get shiv'd.

    A lot depends on where you live. The CBE schools near me still has high quality kids, teachers and principals.

    Principals are what makes or breaks a school BTW. They have complete carte blanche over basically everything. They're just given a pile of money and told "have at 'er"

    Principals can break a school for sure. Our neighborhood school got a new principal and within 2 years several of the better teachers, and the entire parent council had quit. We got our kids out of there.

    The awful thing is that if you're a good principal, the CBE will promote you and you'll stop being a principal.
