Ms.Gropper on Fighting

Reynaldo Hernandez , Reporter

Q: Do you feel as if administration takes fighting serious?

A: I believe the majority of administration takes it serious.

Q: If there was a fight in your room how would you handle it?

A: I would try to protect the students around the fight then call administration because I don’t think I could handle it all by myself.

Q: What do you think should be the consequences for fighting?

A: Week long suspension, then for second or third infraction expulsion.

Q: Should they focus more on trying to prevent fights or students skipping?

A: Students who fight tend to be bad and it tends to be more serious, I personally know kids who skip and they are mostly just students if you get what i mean, not that I think it’s acceptable.

Q: Can you tell when an altercation is going to occur?

A: I don’t believe I am the best to answer this because I have been in one and I couldn’t tell when it happened.

Q: Is there anything else you would like to add?

A: I think most fights could be prevented, and students could come to me, so I can move them around in their groups to help prevent an altercation.
