I don't know what happened so I am not judging anyone but I always wonder how these kinds of things happen. There should be adult supervision at all events where a "cheering section" is. A few teachers or the AD or the principal or someone in a position of authority should be visible and near the cheering section to make sure things like what is being alleged here do NOT happen.

Agree, and let's not indite an entire school for the IDIOCY of a group of immature students. Hopefully someone can identify most of those idiots so they can be dealt with.

Agreed, but unless students with common sense come fourth to point out what happened and who did it, then the entire student section is to blame.

Otter: But you can't hold a whole fraternity responsible for the behavior of a few, sick twisted individuals. For if you do, then shouldn't we blame the whole fraternity system? And if the whole fraternity system is guilty, then isn't this an indictment of our educational institutions in general? I put it to you, Greg - isn't this an indictment of our entire American society? Well, you can do whatever you want to us, but we're not going to sit here and listen to you badmouth the United States of America. Gentlemen!

There could have been 20 people "supervising" them and they could not have stopped it.

I disagree. A visible presence of administrators and teachers is a huge deterrent to stupidity. Not saying it wouldn't have started but it could have been stopped quickly and those responsible punished. When I see and hear students sections acting like idiots I don't get angry with the students, they are teenagers who by definition are usually judgement challenged. I get angry with the adults who run the school who allow the behavior to happen by fostering an environment in the schools where the students feel it's acceptable.

 

A question: If a student at a public school gets in trouble at a sporting event are there school repercussions? At Trinity kids can be given detention for actions at games and serious enough behavior issues can get a kid suspended.

 

Another question: Are teachers at public schools required to be at any extracurricular activities to supervise the students?

Yes if your caught doing something on school grounds or at a school event you can be punished by the school for your actions.... I have heard from someone who witnessed it that it did happen. I do not think its reflective of all of Dixie however for the ones that did tease her, its absolutely tasteless. I hope they get dealt with accordingly by the school.

For me, an ex Dixie sports parent, this is very embarrassing and I feel for the young lady who deals with her issue daily and just wants to be a kid. I think getting your team "taken to the wood shed" had something to do with it as well. You win with class and you LOSE with class, ON AND OFF THE FIELD. And you applaud those less fortunate than you who HAVE THE GUTS to try and live the life same as you! Kids are kids and will always push the envelope as we all well know. I'm not trying to excuse the behavior at all, but I think in today's world we have kind of looked the other way on things that would not have been tolerated years ago.

 

As an ex Dixie sports parent, I sure would like to apologize to the young lady for the STUPID actions of a few idiot Dixie students. And young lady( I think she is an 8th grader), DO NOT LET THIS DETER YOU IN ANY WAY. This Dixie parent is proud of you. You just keep doing what you love and have fun NO MATTER WHAT!

Nitpicking but my guess is the girl does not consider herself to be "less fortunate." She probably just says "different."
