It all comes down to the parents who have allowed their children to get away with issues without discipline. It starts in the home, and parents have been more and more lax about raising their children. They use the school system as babysitters and the schools have almost no ability to discipline kids. If they do, the parents get mad, and the schools back off to avoid legal problems. I can tell you that if I didn't get up and get to the bus stop on time, my parents would have done something about it and my rear would know it.
We have a spoiled rotten group of children and young adults now raising the same clones in this generation now. For it to stop, America will have to start discipline in the home.
