    Texas Cheerleaders Terrorize School

    I can't believe this....

    http://articles.news.aol.com/news/_a...00010000000001

    Dubbed the "Fab Five," they acted like they could get away with almost anything and refused to bend to authority. They repeatedly skipped class, insulted their instructors, and terrorized their coach, their fourth coach in just one year.

    The Fab Five even posted sexually suggestive pictures of themselves on MySpace, but that still wasn't enough for the school to take their pompoms away.

    In an exclusive interview with "Good Morning America," Michaela Ward, the coach that the Fab Five drove out, said the girls were beyond discipline.

    "Unfortunately these girls were given power that any teenager would have completely abused. They were untouchable. They were invincible. The rules did not apply to them," Ward said. "There was no accountability. They knew that I had absolutely no power to discipline."

    The school finally took action. Now, two questions are being asked: What took so long? And who is to blame?

    This is not a unique situation. I know so many kids who are just like this. Too many parents just close their eyes and then they are surprised when their kids are running amok.

    This would be unique here. It wouldn't matter what the parents did or didn't do, it would be handled by admin on the school level.

    This story reads like a bad "teen" movie! It'd be funny if it weren't true.
    I do not intend to tiptoe through life only to arrive safely at death!

    It really is not hard to believe that this could happen, with the "cheerleaders leading person's mother" being the principle of the school. (What would you do as a mother? Turn on your daughter?)
    The sad part is the time it took to "bring it to life" and the damage that it seems to have done to some of the school staff.
    I have in recent years said that being a teacher would be on the low end of my occupation choices. If a teacher irks several students, they get together and claim he/she has made sexual advances on them, and there career is over.
    Sad! So very sad!!

    Our school district has zero tolerance for everything and these girls would have been shut down principle mother or not.

    Putting a stop to it and disciplining her daughter wouldn't be "turning on her", IMO, it would be parenting her daughter. I've known parents who were administrators or teachers at schools their kid attended, and it was always the other way around....the kid was always really well behaved, never got in trouble, etc. because they KNEW the parent would find out easily. For this girl to not have any fear of any reprocussions because Mommy was the principal tells me that there was a major LACK of parenting going on.

    The middle school where my daughter goes has a cheerleading team somewhat like this. At 12 and 13, they are not overtly sexual yet, but they are "mean girls" and think they are miles above everyone else. I see these girls being just like these TX cheerleaders by high school if their parents don't wake up.

    What exactly did the girls do that warranted this news story? I read the article and watched the video, and all I can see is that they posted pictures of themselves on Myspace and stole their teacher's cell phone. Also, they were disrespectful to other teachers.

    I'm sure there must be more to this story if it's on national news, but why won't anybody say exactly what these girls did?

    geez... aren't most teenage girls posting slutty photos of themselves on myspace nowadays? heh.. nothing unusual there.
    and the real question here.. WHY, exactly,, did the school board give this corrupt woman $75K to resign instead of firing her dumb ass?????

    I suppose it just depends on how her compensation package read.

    I thought the cheerleaders were supposed to represent their school. Bad behaviour should have not been tolerated.
