Isn't 'toothbrush clean' an old Navy thing?

"What she (Williams) did to the eighth-grade class was unthinkable," said Jeff Palmer, father of one of the boys punished. "They were humiliated and bullied."


So, now we have the new definition of Bullying.

Bully- v: Doing anything to a person that the person does not like.

A letter placed in Williams' personnel file on Dec. 11 by Schools Director Larry M. Foster warned Williams that she could be dismissed "if additional infractions of this nature occur again."

Ah, unions. Let's say I put a few coworkers in a room to clean a floor. Then I publicly shame them and after that, march them spray another in the eyes with industrial strength chemicals. Do you think that I would get away with a 'letter in my file' or do you think that I'd be brought up on criminal charges and, depending on my lawyer, jail time?

I don't see anything in TFA about a lack of ventilation.

I do see something in TFA about the boys spraying the cleaner into eachother's faces deliberately.

The issue is not the humiliation. As far as I'm concerned, that's good for the kids.

The issue is that graffiti remover is made of Xylene or other industrial solvents. Any inhalation of Xylene, MEK, Toluene, etc. is terribly bad for you. So is getting it on your skin. It should not be used without a mask and gloves.

I cleaned paint off of a bathtub using Goof-Off once. I did it without a mask. Even with the fan on full steam and the door wide open, I couldn't handle more than five minutes in there without feeling like I was about to die.

When I was in high school they had us go into an unused hallway and sweep up Pigon poop. It was all over the place. We were in JROTC and they had us do it without masks or equipment. Nasty stuff.

Let me guess, you also think CEOs are undercompensated, people who make $250k aren't rich, and teachers making $40k are fabulously wealthy and should make less.

Goof-Off is xylene and acetone. No, you REALLYreallyreally don't want to breath that shiat.

How about suspending the arsehole kids who sprayed the cleaner into the faces of others?

Fluorescent Testicle: [spleen]


Clarification: No opinion on whether or not the teacher was in the wrong (TFA doesn't give enough details to decide either way: What kind of cleaner was it? Were they allowed to wear protective gear? Is there any proof that she took pictures, or is that just an outraged parent making up more stuff to be outraged about?), only on the accuracy of subby's headline.

You mean to tell me she didn't have sex with any of them?

Williams, 48, is a tenured teacher.

Carry on then.

It can't be that bad. Matter of fact, I hear it can make you pretty popular:

Yeah, I really don't see a problem with what the teacher did. Suspend the kids who sprayed the cleaner into other student's faces.

Give the teacher a farking raise for imposing some discipline and having to put up with such delinquents.

When I was that age students who misbehaved usually got detention. The janitor often supervised - so it's not unusual IMO to have kids doing janitorial work. It's a bit humiliating, but it's called puinishment, not FUNishment*.

* I swear I just made that up and yet I hate it and I'm sure others have also thought of it.

I wonder if any liquor stores open before 10 on Sunday. 3 more hours!

I bought "Shower Tub & Tile" by Maintex last year to clean my bathroom tub. Nasty stuff, even with ventilation. No list of ingredients on the bottle that I can find. I doubt I'll use it indoors again. Maybe it will work on my tires.

What kind of candy-ass kids are you people raising out there? Humiliation and bullying? This is no different than people who get caught tagging having to clean graffiti for their community service.

Exactly. Teach a lesson, but don't do it unsafely. Turn it into a true teaching moment. Have the kids read the MSDS', put on non-latex gloves and masks -- and goggles, and go to it. Means money out of pocket, since the school won't pay for shiat and won't back up such a punishment in the first place cuz of liability issues, but make it worth it. Too bad for No Child Left Behind, could have made a month of it, having the kids clean different sections of the school as punishment once a week for a quarter.

And yes, any kid caught spraying another kid gets traditional punishment/suspension.

She should have made them clean the walls with toothbrushes and spit. Problem solved.

I thought all female teachers in FARK articles were smokin' hot and having sex with their students.

WTF.

In high school I had a teacher who hated me (I have no idea why) and she also hated projectiles. One day I lobbed a pack of gum to another student a few feet away and was made an example of. I had to go outside and pick up garbage.

It was embarrassing and that teacher was a biatch, but I lived. Would have been better had to inflicted that punishment on other students who whipped erasers at each other, but whatever.

Great teacher and a great lesson.

1. Fire the person who suspended her
2. Backhand the worthless fathers biatching about the punishment
3. Punish the boys who sprayted the other boys in the face with the cleaner

THIS! The teacher's punishment for the students was entirely appropriate. You mess something up then you clean it up, restorative justice. However, if one of the little shiats decides to dig his hole a little deeper while being punished I don't see how it's the teacher's fault.

When I was in Jr High, I was in a not-so-good area, and the school was packed with wannabe gang members. In wood shop, if the teacher caught someone tagging, he made them sand ALL the graffiti off all the work tables with sandpaper alone.

This.

When I was a child I thought it was cool to say bad words because it get me attention from mommy. One day my other got angry and told me if I said another bad word she was going to wash out my mouth with soap. Being a kid I forgot about this threat two nanoseconds later and said a bad word. My mother took me to the sink, stuck my head under the faucet, and proceed to wash my mouth with soap. It was Lava (tm). i never forgot that and I don't think I ever said a bad word around my mother again.

Today, she'd be in jail for child abuse.

Agreed. Making the punks clean up their mess provides an incentive to not make another mess. Punishing the teacher who makes them clean up their mess discourages other teachers from making other punks clean up their messes. This encourages punks to make another mess since the teachers will be fearful of punishing them.

Nope, stupid teacher and stupid lesson. The teacher allowed kids to handle dangerous industrial solvents without protection. The kids who sprayed the other kids probably didn't know how dangerous they were. Her reckless action hospitalized two children. She should be suspended.

and continuing to do so after being told to stop, especially if the behavior is generally considered to be of an unwanted variety, like being sprayed in the face with chemicals that could quite possibly burn out your corneas.

It's a school not an oil rig, the "industrial" strength clean agents are probably no stronger then "extra strength" Tide.
