This is the point. There are people there who could EASILY "control" that kid. But they'd be the ones in jail.
Knowing what i know about schools, this is probably what happened. This kid has been a problem long before this, even though she is only six. The parents have been spoken too or a previous incident took place where the parent did not like how the kid was handled. The parent, who probably is on well fare and spends all the money on scratch tickets and vodka probably had a profanity laced tirade where he or she told the principal how the kid was smarter than all of the teachers and that it was the teachers who were the problem, etc, etc.
I don't know if it was true when I was in school but kids are CRAZY these days, CRAZY. They don't just throw tantrums they throw fits of rage that would get most adults arrested. At what point is a kid too young? Can you arrest a 13 year old for something?
What about a 12 year old? How about 11? Where do you draw the line?
I don't think a classroom full of six year olds is where any of you want to be right now. And at the end of the day you'd be pulling your hair out over the moronic parents, not the raged up kids.
