Does he have any legal guidlines? My school has a vice principle who, when ever there is a situation(i.e. prank, fight, drug deal w/e) and he clues in to it, he threatens the students who he calls down. Not just mild things like failing to cooperate could get you a detention. He openly tells students he will suspend/expell or even change the classes they take so as to prevent them from doing what they wish after school. In some circumstances he even tells them that he is going to have them charged with whatever offence. From my understanding these things have happened more then once, with different people, so i see a pattern developing that isn't just people misunderstanding him or having a grudge. I also can see how he just wants to solve the problems and gets on, so he uses fear against the students. My question is, does he have any guidelines to follow when he does this? Edit: I forgot to add he also yells at them, i have heard no reports of him actualy insulting anyone, but being the second highest figure of authority for a school with children aged 12-18, I personally would feel that unnecessary.
