Link is farked, but if that little kid really was bullying others, he should feel lucky that he got the lesson this way.

The press named the kindergartener but not the teachers. Marvelous.

It's Texas, the kid should have gotten the chair (for a time-out in the corner.)

I was bullied for quite a few years long, long ago. I used to feel a bloodthirsty desire for anti-bullying revenge, but seriously? The kid is 6. If he actually was bullying kids, there are not only better avenues to take, but the blame is on the parents. You don't bully kids at 6 years old because you're inherently a bad human being. You do it because something is going on or went on that steered you to that behavior.

Sure it will work for discipline now, but aren't you worried about the consequences of your actions?

Look, while I don't recommend punching mostly, sometimes peeps deserve that shiat, and you know what I mean.

Once punched, pricks stand down.

However, teacher-sanctified punching in the classroom is prohibited at all times.

Secret support is best.

Let me guess, the victim was the class bully.

Gee, what a shock. So yeah, be all outraged and stuff. My philosophy is you're never to young to learn bad actions have consequences.

I know working with little kids can be frustrating, but how stupid are these teachers? Too many witnesses! You're supposed to take the misbehaving child into an isolated area and threaten to fark his pets until they bleed and slit mommy and daddy's throats with a serrated knife. Then you tell the kid that if he tells anyone what you said, that you are going to sneak into his bedroom at night and hang him from the ceiling by his ball sack.

This worked really well when I was a teacher.

It's called having older brother(s).

And the solution? Let the little bully get the snot kicked out of him a couple of times. That mellows them out.

This doesn't work well on the kids taking too long at the Skee-Ball machine at Chuck E. Cheese. Trust me.

It's about time - finally, an approach to bullying that makes sense
 
2012-06-15 09:21:34 PM
Good...teach the little bastard that he's not gonna be able to run around shoving people about, and now he will be a whipped little puppy and stop being such a douchebag. Too bad the teacher got fired.

Alright! You're getting the strap today in the auditorium in front of the whole school.
Anyone who's not here today will be brought in tomorrow to watch you get the strap.
And anyone who's not there tomorrow will be brought in the day after.
And then .. we're going on a national tour!

I only had to deal with one bully this year at school, later in the year he came to school with a black eye after trying to intimidate the wrong boy. After determining that it was a confrontation that started after school, off school property, at one of the student's homes we saw that we had no responsibility to discipline the boys and let it go. The bully was a lot more mellow for the rest of the year and as far as I heard from other teachers and students both sets of parents were OK that the bully had learned a lesson and no complaints were lodged with the school.

This, however, is much different than the article and the incident in TFA should never have happened, especially at age 6 (even in high school most bully problems are best dealt with by the kids themselves with as little input as possible to insure that the justice is served)
 
2012-06-15 09:25:59 PM
The mother added - and the police report confirmed - that some of Aiden's classroom friends told him they didn't want to hit the boy but did so because they were afraid not to.

Hell of a job teachers. Role models, I tell you.

Horseshiat. My music teacher was kicked out of the district for teaching the violin students to play "Orange Blossom Special." Apparently bluegrass is forbidden there.

Those are kindergarteners. None of them are bullies yet, and no such hard lessons should be taught yet. Forget whether the lesson might be appropriate in any instance, which I would argue this is not, but to instruct a classroom of kindergarteners to strike a peer gives several wrong lessons to easily coerced students. To have to do this shows a complete inability to manage the classroom by the teachers, besides.

I agree. They still have a couple of years the kid could've been helped so much easier. I get the feeling the teacher didn't bother to consider too many alternatives like not losing job or not trying to teach the other students how to bully.
 
2012-06-15 09:35:44 PM
Heh, reminds me of the "Airplane" scene where everyone is lining up to beat the shiat out of the woman who is freaking out...good times.

In my work with kids, I had one I'll call Sam. Sam had some real emotional issues; he was very angry all the time, and often expressed rage at his groupmates. He'd say things like "I have a knife. I can use it, and I'll kill all of you." He was six. I reported these incidents as I was required to. Instead of punishment, we got him a knock-down clown puncher. When things got out of hand, I'd encourage him to release all his rage on the doll, and hit it until his anger was exhausted. It never, ever would have occurred to me to have him beaten by his groupmates. That's just...bizarre.

The STAAR test and Texas heat is really a bad combo. Just a few months back, in South Texas, another district was in the news. One of their schools forced a bunch of kids to crawl on the track, because the kids were meowing like cats at an assembly. The kids' knees were all cut up, burned, and bloody.
 
2012-06-15 09:45:37 PM
I distinctly remember in preschool, Kid A hit Kid B, so the teacher told Kid B to hit Kid A back. As a 4 yr old who had been taught not to hit people to begin with, it shocked me to hear an adult tell a kid to hit another kid.

"Little man: violence won't help your anger. Love will."
