A 15-Year-Old Was Arrested Today for Disrupting the STAAR Test

Village Fair is Dallas ISD's alternative school, where the district sends those students deemed too disruptive or unruly to function in mainstream classrooms. That it experiences its share of discipline problems is a given. But even there, the iron rule of Texas education applies: Don't mess with the STAAR test.

Police drove the message home this morning when they arrested a 15-year-old girl for doing just that. According to a police report, the girl was in detention when, at about 10:20 a.m., she demanded to leave. The teacher refused and told the girl to cut it out. When she didn't, the teacher radioed for help.

A teaching assistant arrived and led the girl into the hall. The girl then stopped, refusing to budge. "I ain't going no-fucking-where," she yelled. "Call security."

Hurling obscenities down a school hallway is always grounds for punishment, even more so when other students are taking a standardized test. A Dallas police officer was in the building and arrived to take the girl away

"[Her] behavior was disturbing other students that were testing," the officer wrote in a report. "[She] had to be immediately removed from the area to prevent any further disturbance interfering with the state required test."

She was taken to Dallas County's juvenile detention center and charged with disrupting a school activity, a misdemeanor that carries with it a possible $500 fine.

Something that the kids at Village Fair and Townview can agree on: the idiocy of STARR is enough to reduce to a screaming, foaming-at-the-mouth, raving lunatic.

Something tells me this won't be her last arrest.

This happens often all over DFW when students commit misdemeanors like public lewdness (f-bombing in the hall) and disturbing the peace. Seems appropriate. The STAAR test is coincidental to her illegal behavior.

So sad...Look to Sweden, by the time one reaches 'high-school' (there) they have only taken only a handful of standardized tests, while here in America we have taken, on average, 2,000 standardized testes by the time we reach high school.

Shit. When I went to high school they sent you to the principal's office for that kind of stuff, not jail. Something is very wrong with a school sending its minor students to jail.

@Tom434 Don't you mean the neighborhood to prison pipeline. Remember that kid had to come from some neighborhood.

This mess happens because the communities and certain leaders will not allow proper punishment and/or help/support to help prevent this rude behavior.

Nobody wants to hold these kids accountable.

Maybe if we started cracking down on this crap, it would cease and teaching could take place instead of the students owning the halls

She'll probally be knocked up with some kid you will see crawling around the corner in a soiled diaper unsupervised 2 years later.

@keeponkeepinitdown @primi_timpano Yeah... except, no.  It's school, not a POW camp and we're not even allowed to 'beat the living hell out of' POW's.  Discipline, yes, Abuse, no.  It's really a simple concept.

@primi_timpano A billion + a year thrown away just in Dallas alone on these illiterate malcontents. People like yourself have no solution other than 'throw more money on the fire!'

If this behavior had real consequence I suspect you would see a stunning turn around in student performance. But nooooo every little liberal child is precious and must be coddled as much as possible. 


I say: Beat the living hell out of them till they comply.
