    been scolded by another teacher for "fooling
    around" and has had the privilege of eating lunch
    outside at the picnic tables revoked for the rest

    crashes and gunshots and makes limitless
    sarcastic comments and put-downs of his
    classmates. Other students will not stand up
    apparently fearing his size and verbal

  • In a typical classroom on a typical day, Jonah
