Getting in trouble for something you didn't do is a common teenage complaint
February 19, 2014James F Byrnes Freshman Academy
Getting in trouble in school is a problem some teens claim they face.How they handle the situation can determine the outcome.
Guidance Counselor Regina Childers said, “I don’t think it happens a lot here, but if it does, it’s my job to figure out to help the student with it.”
Mr. Jackson, assistant principal at Byrnes Freshman Academy (BFA), said that if a teacher writes a referral, the student is guilty.Sometimes students make “bad decisions,” he explained
But if a student gets into trouble for a bad decision, Mr. Jackson went on to say that students “shouldn’t react to it.”
“Everybody makes mistakes sometimes,” explained Regina Childers.
Quianna Wood said that getting in trouble for something you did not do does not happen often, but if it does, it would “depend on the punishment” if she would get upset.
