If her titties had touched him, she would have made the sex offender list.

Against the rules for a student to hug a teacher? What the fark? I used to hug my teachers all the time. As long as they aren't naked while they're hugging, what the heck is the problem? Geez.
 
2012-04-14 12:50:44 PM  
No good deed goes unpunished.

Maybe we should just start executing students and teachers who break the rules. If we're gonna be zero-tolerance, might as well go all the way.

She made the right choice, there's no 20 year list for an assault charge

Wow, back when I went to school teachers just used to spectate during fights and would only break it up after someone got beat up.

Student and teacher get caught kissing by another student. Teacher claims, "We were just hugging." Does the admin believe the teacher or the student? To prevent issues like this in the future, admin bans student/teacher hugging.

Teacher does not want to be the next teacher in the news for allegedly having sex with a student.

The few truly ruin it for the many. I had great teachers when I was a kid. Back when teachers cared about their students and not their overinflated pensions.

Just look at all of the Student-teacher scandals. Any possible hint of affection and she's not only out of a job, but banned from her career. All for a rumor. And if charges are filed, it's more than likely that she'll be put on the sex offender registry and kept from society completely.

I work part time for an all girls religious school, and the only reason I am not constantly in fear is that there is a strict no touching policy for males. Meaning not even a handshake. If I am never within 2 feet of them, I can't really get accused of anything.

About ten years ago, my mom (teaching 7th grade at the time) was in danger of being fired because she had the audacity to hug a couple of students after they learned that two of their friends had just been gunned down by a mentally ill man.

Right? I hugged many teachers in my school days. Maybe I should be written up after the fact.

as stated in the comments:

I think the bigger cause for concern is the quality of journalism in the world today... clearly there is more to this story.

Was this kid attacked?
Did he start the fight?
Is he a "trouble-maker"
Was this an innocent hug or was he being a smartarse?

Is this just typical zero-tolerance nonsense from the schools or did this kid actually need to be disciplined?
this doesn't read like fair and balanced reporting to me.

i remember when i was 14. i liked to walk up and shake hands with my teachers in the hall. yes - perfectly harmless, but i was definitely being a smartarse. i know, it's silly but it makes me laugh even today thinking back. Of course i never got in trouble for it. but i also never got in fights with other students and was generally not a trouble-maker... i was one of the "good kids"
i'm sure the teachers just thought i was being a dork (they were right) and went along with it.

the year prior, i choked on an eraser cap and almost died - a teacher saved my life. you better believe i hugged him afterwards.

if this kid was being are about to be beaten, the teacher stopped the fight and he tried to hug her that is an entirely different story than if he was being a little punk about it.

We all were kids, we all know the difference - you all know what i am talking about.

Maybe the teacher and the policy are completely ridiculous - maybe not.
This is a highly one-sided story - and it's the complete lack of common sense that has incubated the petri dish of nonsense that has created most of the absurdities associated with modern education: zero-tolerance policies, absurd penalties for minor infractions and ultimately the rampant sissification and stupification of our young men and women - and this is the institution that is turning out today's lazy semi-literate journalists.

Husband is a teacher and he dosent touch students in any way, and dosnt get within a foot if they are alone in room and the door is ALWAYS open.

But as a HS teacher for troubled kids he cant risk it.
 
2012-04-14 01:02:46 PM  
And if she had let him hug her, it would have led to a full blown affair.

Why don't you just give them laptops and teach them at their homes by internet video? If you can't get near them anyway, it would work just as well..

Oh that's not what I said. But I do know many teachers who complain about having to contribute 1% to their retirement plans when they already get paid twice what I do and only have to work 30 years to hit retirement. If I want any kind of retirement, I contribute 5% to a 401k that gets 3 % match and I don't get a pension. I don't complain.

If I'm not mistaken, you can get charged with assault for performing CPR/heimlick without being certified. And FSM help you if you are a male trying to help a small child.

If it wasn't for the overinflated pensions, summers off, laziness, the fact that they only work like 6 hours a day, and the mob-run union, I bet more than 50% of teachers would survive the first 5 years. Teachers would care more if they were treated like shiat.
 
2012-04-14 01:04:29 PM  
It's better to let the kids hit each other and stop them after a minute or two than to break them up and keep the pot simmering. Let them get it out of their system and move on. I got beat up in school once and there weren't any teachers to stop it, and the weren't any on the bus when I beat him up. Then we became friends. I can't explain the mind of teen-aged boys but that seems to happen a lot.

This.

That was my point entirely.

My mom had a cushy job working as a charter school choir teacher. 10 hours a week and she pulled in nearly what I do working 40.

I was stating facts, not complaining. I'm grateful for a 3% match in this economy. It was a compare and contrast of overinflated benefits the teachers get vs what other occupations get. I'm not grousing thinking I should get more, I think they should get less.

Overpaid isn't my issue. I just think they should contribute more to their own pensions rather than just having it handed to them. I think the same thing of a lot of civil service jobs.

Ok no hugging. Whatever. And no fighting. Ok. Those are the school rules. Neat. But to physically touch a student in a manner that leaves marks? I can't leave marks when disciplining my OWN child. If it was my child, I'd kick the teacher's ass. Period.

Just read the headline to my teacher wife and she fiessedmthe ending and wasn't the least bit surprised. She said that the county has informed all teachers that hufs are not allowed, period. If a teacher hugs a student it is a disiplanary offence. No wonder she hares her job and is considering a career change after 18 years.
