Back before "gay" became gay, I used it, too. I had a really hard time breaking myself of it. I also struggled to get "retarded" out of my vocabulary. I didn't mean them offensively, but... Nonetheless. Could be their parents use the words, too, but don't bother to break the habit. Or maybe they mean them offensively.

So, these kids are getting your goat. I suggest following Ima's suggestions and enforce consequences. They are doing it purposefully, it sounds. Can you get other staff members to have a discussion about this type of behavior?

Personally, I think in this day and age if admin doesn't care it is time to go higher. It is not okay and someone needs to make sure everyone knows that.

I haven't had an issue with this in my elementary school.
