[While some kids are stealing from the school], others are being punished for far lesser offenses. Middle school teacher Gale Dragone, 52, was arrested yesterday after [throwing a book at her 12-year-old student](http://www.nypost.com/seven/02152007/news/regionalnews/teacher_booked_regionalnews_perry_chiaramonte.htm) because she wouldn’t shut the #$@* up. [Dragone was charged with assault and endangering the welfare of a child.](http://www.nysun.com/article/48704) Authorities say she was transferred from her job at Intermediate School 296 and faces investigation by the city Department of Education. As for the kid, she got a bloody nose and was taken to the hospital. We’re sure she won’t be talking in class again, but we wonder what good ol’ teach would’ve done had she swiped her purse.
