Florida high schools are no longer allowed to score high school sports scores as part of the state’s new “zero tolerance” school discipline policies.
“I have been a teacher in Florida since 1988,” said former Broward High School coach, David Satterfield, a former national high school wrestling coach.
“The standard of instruction is very low.
In this day and age, with so many people who are so easily distracted, the teacher’s job is to give a very clear instruction to the student that what they are doing is wrong and that they should be disciplined.”
Satterfield said he has noticed students at his high school have become “safer” since the policies took effect, but it was too early to tell whether the change had been enough to reduce violence and crime.
“It’s a matter of time,” he said.
I think they have been getting a little bit safer. “
We are not there yet, but I think we are beginning to see a change in the way the students are behaving.
They are paying attention.””
They are doing their homework.
They are paying attention.”
Saturation of the school system, including new students, has meant that Florida’s schools have grown considerably in size.
The state now has more than 6,000 high schools.
In an attempt to address this, Satterfords high school, the first in the state, has started a program to teach children how to use social media.
The school has also hired a psychologist to help students understand the consequences of their actions.
Satterfields son, who plays basketball, was not in the gym this week and was not present for the first day of class, but the district said he was still under suspension for “attempted child abuse”.
“We are just a little way out,” Satterfields daughter, who was in class the day before, told the Orlando Sentinel.
“He was in the building.
Florida high school basketball scores will be cut to zero, as the state moves to close its high school scoring gap with its younger peers.”

Florida high school basketball scores will be cut to zero, as the state moves to close its high school scoring gap with its younger peers.
But many students will still be allowed to play on the field, and teachers will still have the right to discipline students who commit serious offenses.
“You can’t go anywhere else, you can’t do anything else, and you can only go to school if you have a good reason,” said Michael Krawetz, an elementary school teacher at the Broward School District.
“And we don’t have that.
We have to live in the real world.”
The Broward school district says it will not close its football scores because of the new zero tolerance policy, but will focus on its other sports scores, such as the basketball team’s and track team’s.
The state’s decision to close high school scores has sparked a backlash among some parents.
Some parents said the scores have been too high, especially among girls, because they are seen as “girly” or “cool”.
“I think that there is a misconception about what’s cool and what’s not cool,” said Laura Krawitz, a teacher at Broward Public Schools.
“It is not cool to be out there doing something that is not a team sport. “
It’s just not cool.””

A spokesperson for the Florida Department of Education told Al Jazeera the department will not comment on individual schools, but noted the department was working with parents to improve their learning experiences.
