CARY, N.C. (CBS Local) — Teachers in North Carolina are being asked to rate the social, emotional and behavior health of students and some parents are not happy about it. The Wake County school system will have teachers at around 40 schools rate their students on 34 questions, The News & Observer reported, such as how often they’ve appeared angry, depressed, engaged in risk-taking behavior or had problems staying on task. Some parents are refusing to give permission for teachers to conduct the surveys. “I don’t understand why they are trying to do this to the kids,” said Rachael Ayscue, whose child attends Green Hope High School. “I’m frustrated.” Ayscue says she doesn’t think the surveys are appropriate for schools. “I don’t think it’s fair to put the teachers in the position to have to analyze the students in this way.

NORTH MASSAPEQUA, N.Y. (CBSNewYork/AP) — A Long Island high school football coach is being punished — for winning a game. The coach drew a one-game suspension from a Nassau County school sports committee because it’s apparently OK to win — but not if you score too many points doing it. Plainedge High School coach Robert Shaver was suspended following last Friday’s game against South Side High School in Rockville Centre. Nassau’s “Section 8 Lopsided Score Committee” decided Shaver’s Red Devils should have avoided defeating their opponent by a score of 61-13. Simply put, Shaver was publicly scolded because his team was too good that night and the coach is being accused of running up the score to embarrass another school.
