lock them up
Its not like when you were in school, not in a good way. Kid bring a knife to schopl, pull it out and threaten to slice someone up, in my opinion, the cops should be called, charges should be pressed. In our school system that kid was sent to "alternative" school for a year, then brought back into the regular classes. Never should be allowed back in the school imo.
Discipline in the schools is non-existent, my kids tell me often, meaning every week, about a kid cussing out a teacher and the teacher doing nothing.
Re: lock them up
When I was a kid I would have got swats at school and at home.
Kids do everyday what I can't even imagine the most I'll behaved kid doing when I was young.
