"13-year-old Brea Persley was kicked out of Century Academy for Excellence..."

"Brea" is Spanish for "tar"

And "Persley"? Well...

Let's just say that this poor girl has a rather unfortunate name.

Won't someone think of the poor little girl? That teacher has destroyed her peer group interface dynamics. Now the little girl will suffer low self esteem and be scarred for the rest of her life.This will be a lasting psychological injury .
Perhaps several million dollars will soothe the child's mom from suffering or trauma.

rebelyell2006: Amos Quito: "Brea" is Spanish for "tar"

"Brea" is a diminutive form of "Breanna", which is an alternative form of "Brianna". Brianna is a Celtic name. But don't let facts get in the way of your racist circle-jerk.



Yeah, and brea is also Spanish for "Tar", and as Inglewood, California is approximately 46% Hispanic, I'm pretty sure that I'm not the first to make the Brea = brea connection with this unfortunate girl.

cybrwzrd: I may be a racist jerk for saying this, but if Blacks want to be respected as contributing members of society, why do so many of them act like antisocial jerk wads who only care about themselves? Sure, plenty of whites act this way too, but since moving to Atlanta, I have only met maybe 3 black people who are not farking sociopaths. I don't want to believe that sociopathy is a genetic condition, but I have yet to find overwhelming evidence that it isn't within the "African" American community.

eraser8: Kyndig: By the same token, I had an african american basketball coach who regularly used the term "pasty white asses" in his "motivational" shouting. Nobody gave a damn.

Why doesn't anyone here seem to get the fact that the issue here isn't that the teacher is white and the student is black?

That may be why the news station latched on to the story -- but it doesn't seem to me the issue between the family and the school.

The issue is a teacher insulted a student.

I get that people get frustrated. But, if you're a professional, you deal with it without lashing out at a child.



I agree. But even the best teachers have had their weak moments, especially when dealing with the foulest kid. I'm a middle school teacher and probably way too patient. Nice and respectful works with about 80% of kids.

Certain kids just don't respect you if you act calmly, reasonably and intelligently. Then you see another teacher scream at them to sit down and shut up, and they do. It's frustrating, because you want to treat them respectfully and give them a place to mess up and learn from their mistakes, but you also have to do your job.

I never trust one side of the story, especially when it is a student trying to get an adult in trouble. I think the principal's statement about mean kids to the newspaper is highly unprofessional though.

There's something we're not hearing here.

siyuntz: The article linked in the HuffPost article said that the girl had been in a fight on campus, and had been cited for tardiness and gum-chewing, but it also said that the letter sent to the mom specifically stated that she was banned "due to the fact that [mom] scolded the principal". I think that is where the school left themselves wide open to problems.


How so? She got what she deserved. Considering parents are responsible for the majority of problems with kids today, just when and how do schools start holding parents accountable? This would appear to be a good start. Hopefully the mother has to stay home with the child now and loses a job. True social justice.

FTFA: Giselle Edman, who is African-American, shifted the blame onto Persley, saying, "Bad things need to happen to mean kids."

Reminds me of when I was a tutor for underprivileged kids.

Some kids would tease others for being slow, not understanding one concept or another. How did the teachers respond? Not by scolding the children and telling them they were wrong to make fun of people trying to learn; the teachers would actually tell the mean kids thing like, "well, you're dumb, too" or "you can hardly read."

Made me want to punch those teachers right in the neck.

The truth is most of the kids weren't dumb. It's just that nobody had ever taken an interest in them, nobody had ever really cared about whether the kids really understood the concepts that were being taught. But, if you took a few minutes, you'd see that the kids quickly "got" the point, were able to answer questions correctly and were able to apply the principles to new problems.

Of course, the really depressing part was the whole tutoring thing was like the labor of Sisyphus. You'd get the kids excited about learning one day...but, the next time you'd come back, they'd be lethargic and hopeless and had forgotten everything you'd taught them a few days before.

*sigh*
