52. A teacher's job is... insure safety of both boys and girls (all of them, even the ones breaking a rule) so that teaching and learning can take place. But a teacher's actions have to be supported by district and school policies (rules :) ) in order to be fair and consistent.

You said, "If you want to hand off the problem to someone - CALL the parents." Most teachers do this all the time. Only rarely does it make a difference...and that's when the parents and teacher actually hear each other and work together to solve the problem. Unfortunately, calling the parents more often results in 1) a disconnected phone, 2) parents only believing their child's side of the story, 3) promises to act by parent that are never followed through on.
