Interim Pinellas superintendent speaks about disruptive students

Bad classroom behavior on mind of Interim chief

The Pinellas County School District needs to find better ways of dealing with chronically disruptive students, interim superintendent John Stewart said last week. "Every time a teacher spends his or her time working with a misbehaving child … it's robbing the other children of their right to get an education," he told about 60 people attending a meeting of Concerned Organizations for Quality Education for Black Students in St. Petersburg. He said he'll be talking with the School Board about establishing a task force to find solutions.
