I have a student that does whatever he wants if there is even the slightest thought that he might get away with it. In fact even when it’s obvious he won’t get away with it he still does what he wants. He is also smart and manipulative. Furthermore he seems to have no sense of empathy or morals whatsoever. I am not the only one who notices this. Today my aide even said “He’s like a shell of a person.” I have spoken to his parents about his behavior and they are no help. But that’s not why I’m posting. I know he will not change. I was just wondering if anyone else has ever had a student that struck you as a possible sociopath. Someone who just doesn’t seem to have any sense of right and wrong, or knows but simply does not care.
