Finger Pointing

A crisis just happened to erupt in my classroom when I left it in the very capable hands of a classroom aide.

James lofted a chair above his head and threatened to kill Robert and Justin, because they had made inflammatory comments about his mother, because he had thrown an eraser at Robert (and hit him), because he was sulking and didn't want to work, because I had taken away his pleasure-reading books, because he has been reading those instead of working and had been refusing to cooperate in study hall for days.

So, basically, it's everyone else's fault.

Sound familiar?
