Of course he's just a kids who probably has assburgers, High definintion ADD and a dozen other reasons he should have the snot beaten out of him.

Don't beat a kid becuase of the way he is, beat a kid because of the things he does.

There's about 1 in a thousand headlines that makes me laugh out loud. This was 1.. Damn you subby, now I have to slog through 999 boring headlines til the next one.

They should just allow the 38 year old male teacher to react in the way he would had it been a 20 year old that stabbed him with a pencil.

If this means he yells OW! and walks away all confused then so be it. If this means he sucker punches the kid square in the jaw... so be it.

If kids want to attack adults, they should be willing to take the pain.

backseatdriver: If kids want to attack adults, they should be willing to take the pain.

I've heard a story of an English teacher being tossed out a window by some kids in the countryside and I've actually seen one teacher have his shoulder dislocated breaking up a fight.

I doubt it will ever happen, even the bad kids are better than that so far, but I'll be damned if I'm gonna be professional in one of those situations. I don't make enough to be assaulted at work. The first kid to try and launch my ass out a window is coming with me.

I know it's not PC to hit little kids, but if a 10 year old stabbed me in the chest with a pencil I would beat him to within an inch of his life, in self defense, of course.

I have a little black dot on my right wrist which is the back end of the tip of a pencil that a girl in grade 2 implanted in my wrist with great force and malice. As to why she stabbed me. Well let's just say if a girl takes you into the wooded gully off the playground during recess to play "I'll show you mine then you show me yours" you damned well better show her yours.

yogaFLAME: I always wanted to get a #3 pencil just to see if it would blow up the scantron.

I worked on a campus and got to run the Scantron. What will happen is the machine won't read the answers correctly. The way it works is a light beam passes over the test and the graphite from the pencil reflects the light back and the machine records the location of the light being reflected. The reason you use a #2 pencil isn't because of any technical reason but because it's simply the most common pencil out there.

Never hit a child; it leaves a mark that you'll have to explain to the authorities afterwords. Pull their hair. It causes immense pain and immediate compliance.

If the teacher is not satisfied with the outcome, they could always say the student is wearing a shirt they don't like; all absolute farking hell would break loose then! Anything from detention to permanent expulsion and arrest!!!!!

Two years ago, at my spouse's school we had a child 1. Break a teacher's arm after throwing an object and 2. Put another teacher out permanently with a serious back injury (now in a wheelchair) as a result of an assault. This child was in Grade 4 and had behavioral issues (ADHD) that justified these attacks and thus allowed him to go unpunished. The bigger issue is that these teachers are strictly prohibited from striking a child under any circumstances.

Ah well, get used to it. This is what happens when children are allowed to run wild without fear of punishment.

Bring back the strap and give 'em a slap!

Gee..a teacher was penetrated by something other than a student's penis. That IS news!

In America, he would have been charged with possession of a deadly weapon just for brining the pencil to school. ZERO TOLERANCE.

I would assume the injured initiated lawsuits demanding enormous sums of money from both the school that create an exceptionally dangerous environment and the parents who are ultimately financially responsible for the child's behavior?

This is one of those circumstances where lawyers become a Good Thing. The parents of that child should never again eat anything but cat food and muddy water.

Unfortunately, this is Canada. They have no recourse as it's generally thought to be an assumed risk of the job now. The child didn't even miss a day of school because they thought it might be detrimental to his behavior. This is the norm around here. Teacher assaults happen all the time and there's next to nothing that can be legally done about it.

In fact, the teacher in the wheelchair now struggles to get by on disability benefits.

Assumed risk, sure. But where do you draw the line?

The strap is a bit tame, punt kick the little bastard through the windshield of the principals Audi, claim adult ADHD and watch the perfect storm of plaintiff/defendant in the following lawsuits as they galvanize each others position.

That is hilarious. I have a similar "tattoo" in my knee, but it's just from some A-hole on the school bus stabbing me.

What happens if a teacher dies in such an assault? Write them off as expendable?
