Who should pay?

Discussion in 'Behaviour' started by mathsboy3, Jul 26, 2011.

  1. When a student throws something at a teacher which results in the need for dry cleaning, who should foot the bill.......the teacher, the student (never going to happen!!) or the school?
  2. The student. You should phone home and explain and send the bill their way.
    If the student's parents do not pay then hopefully the school will?

    It is"common assault". Give them a choice pay or report it to the police.
    They may prefer the latter but then the school will be force to take it more seriously than hand wringing and saying I'm sorry.
    I had a student deliberately throw ink at me. The head was pathetic no action. It was then suggested to the student that they daren't do the same to the head. Student duely did and was excluded. Rule for one and all that.
