I do respect police officers and what they do for us but I do not envy their job. Cops are human and make mistakes and also do wrong just like all of us do. The police officers also do a great deal of good as we all do as well.
I have a possible solution to disruptive school students that might work better than an officer in a classroom. I offer this as an outside observer and not one who is in the system so take it for what it’s worth. Perhaps a teacher could record a video or audio pop quiz. The teacher could also have tests lined up and verbally give the pop quiz in a conversational volume where, if the class where quiet everyone could hear the teacher’s voice. When a student or multiple students are disrupting class, announce the pop quiz and proceed. Make the pop quiz difficult enough where a student would have to give their undivided attention to the teacher’s voice to answer questions correctly. Do not repeat the questions, allow just enough time for students to write down their answers then, go to the next question. Make sure the grade on these pop quizzes count high enough towards each student’s grade for that class. Don’t allow more time for each question to be answered because some student is disrupting the class.
A teacher could tell the class that these pop quizzes will occur if and when any student decides to disrupt the learning of the class. Perhaps when other students start failing the class because of disruptive students, peer pressure will make the bad student straighten up. I could imagine if all the students in a classroom tell the bad student to shut up, the disrupting actions might end. I would not give any special treatment to the good student by not grading their pop quizzes properly, this would only defeat the purpose. If any teacher out there tries this, let me know how it goes.
