The word “munchkin” has become an easy shorthand for an individual who thinks their school has a problem, even if it doesn’t.
The word can even be used as a way to describe those who feel their school is failing them.
The term is so ingrained that it is also used to describe the people who are supposedly taking it too far.
But according to the National Center for Education Statistics, there is no such thing as a munchkin.
According to a survey conducted by the Center for Science Education (CSE), only 16% of kindergarten students identified as munchkins in kindergarten.
Only 2% of children from families with incomes of $60,000 or more said they were.
“The munchkins are the ones who are out there, doing it, and are saying, ‘Hey, that’s not okay,'” said CSE’s Director of Education, Paul D. Cawley.
The study also found that munchins are less likely to report the effects of bullying, harassment and isolation.
Munchkins are also less likely than their peers to experience the positive impacts of education.
“For munchies, it’s not just that they have to wait to graduate, they have also to wait a year before they can get a job,” said Cawle.
But if you’re one of the munchking out there and you have a complaint about your school, Cawlley said you can talk to the school’s human resources department to help you with your complaints.
“If the school doesn’t do enough, then you can reach out to us, and we’ll go out there with our experts and work with them to figure out what the problem is and what the solutions are,” he said.
The school also has a zero-tolerance policy on bullying and harassment.
Cawley said there are schools that have “a very strong zero-teacher policy,” where if a teacher or staff member reports any bullying or harassment, then the teacher or school can be suspended.
“They can get fired and get a zero.
That’s a very strong policy.
But if it’s just a couple of people, you can have it be suspended,” he added.
The CSE survey found that children in private schools with no English language learners and no English learners who were under age 5 were less likely and less likely in general to be munchakins than those in private school with English learners and English learners with disabilities.
There is a difference, however, in whether munching is a crime or not.
“It’s a crime to be rude or aggressive, and it’s a criminal offense to munch, to tease, to insult, to bully,” said Dwayne M. Dolan, a criminal justice professor at Ohio State University.
“There are some laws that say that if you munch you can’t be a teacher,” he explained.
“It’s pretty much the same for school.
If a school doesn, in fact, have a zero tolerance policy, then they can’t have any teachers.
But they can have munch-kids.”
There are also other rules that apply to mucking around at school.
“Anytime there’s something going on, the kids have to be aware of it, have their phones in their pockets, be aware that there is a teacher there, and don’t munch,” said Molan.
“But then you’re mucking with the kids.
It’s not about the rules.
It just is about the fact that the rules are the rules.”
