now i didnt read the whole blog but if you've spent any time around the highschool aged kids, can you disagree with her?

Sure can't. High school kids today are unmotivated, entitled, greedy little slugs who expect high reward in exchange for little effort, for the most part.

Forgot to add: their attitude is often supported by parents with perfect child syndrome.

I had a friend who was a sub (baby sitter) for a while. A student got up to leave after he took attendance. When my friend said the student would be marked absent if he left, the student cursed at him and threw a chair at him. My friend lost it and let a few obscenities fly. He was reprimanded by the admins, the student got away with it.
I threw a chair across the class when I was in first grade once. Kept me in a tiny file hall(ye ol ISS)behind the main office for two days and that kid gets a hug!?
btw I enjoyed the harder assignments so wasn't going "full" retard. :P
It really does sadden me the way most of my generation is. I'm 19, in college full-time, am getting financial aid because my parents don't make much, and I do not have a job. I am lazy and intelligent, but I am motivated. I have always wanted to please my parents, yet they are proud of me no matter what I do. My parents were real parents, not my friends; they did a great job at raising me, yet punished my when I deserved it.
Lets see, what else.. I do enjoy instant gratification, yet I am fine with waiting as well. I respect other people's rights just as I expect them to respect mine. It angers me when (in this case) students feel they can walk all over the teacher, yet the teacher can not retaliate.
*Shrug* Maybe it doesn't sadden me, but instead enrages me.
Didn't read the article, but I remember back when I was in high school (graduated about 6 years ago) that more then half the kids in my grade were both retarded and disrespectful towards teachers all the time. One of my classes my senior year (I'm talking a room full of 17-18 year olds!) literally gave the teacher so much crap that about a quarter of the way through the year if you even made one retarded comment or disrupted class in any way you were sent down to the office, half the class would be gone in the first 15 minutes.
I felt so bad for her and at the same time so unbelievably saddened by the people that were supposed to be my peers. No wonder half the country is retarded and illiterate. (It was an English class btw..)
I got along with my teachers better then I did with any of my fellow classmates.. Why? Because they were the only ones that acted their age. I can't say all of my graduating class was like that, but when they are the majority of a rather small group of kids, its a sad thing to see indeed.
