First of all these teachers included the office staff need to use their people skill, control their emotions and use their value when it come down to talking to those with respects is something u have to earn u don't curse the students out or yelling at them On the form of the rest of the students what they can do is pull them to the office and talk to them and that so call assistant principal is rude and unprofessional.
