ecmoRandomNumbers: There is not a teacher in this country who hasn't had the overwhelming urge to do this. The fact that this doesn't happen every day just shows the incredible restraint teachers have.It's also why we drink./ex-teacher
IgG4: Hero tag?

ReapTheChaos: "It seeks more than $100,000 in damages, saying the boy has suffered anxiety attacks and nightmares since the Feb. 27, 2012, incident."Bullshiat. Just some parents trying to make a quick buck.
doglover: Make education free, yet optional.
Yogimus: Authority is a scary thing
profplump: doglover: Make education free, yet optional.Education isn't a benefit for children, or for parents. It's mandatory because I don't want to live in a society fully of stupid people. And neither do you -- stop pretending your life would be better if there were fewer educated people in society.
fifthhorseman: If we have to dumb down school any further English will be replaced by Grunting.
profplump: fifthhorseman: If we have to dumb down school any further English will be replaced by Grunting.I don't understand how that's contrary to my point. Education is a benefit for society, not for parents or their children. The fact that it's failing is a reflection on us, not on "kids these days".
TwowheelinTim: IgG4: Hero tag?Came here to suggest this for the teacher.Thank you very much.
Somacandra: This is the child of a school board member, a pretty crucial fact.I think there is more at work here, especially given the offers and counter offers of settlement.
MNguy: swingerofbirches:Now I'm not saying this teacher should be fired if she is remorseful and realized she really screwed up. But I know that a teacher's actions can be traumatizing. I suffered far less than this and it changed affected my identity. I can vividly remember teachers saying horrible things, and when you're young, it means a lot to you what some idiot adult thinks (in my case it was teachers that said really crappy things about being gay).Teachers are people too, they bring their own baggage and life experiences to the classroom. Nobody's perfect
swingerofbirches: Very worthy...
laststarfighter: Based on the results with this kid, I suggest a mandatory duct tape wrapping of anyone getting in line for American Idol auditions.
swingerofbirches: Very worthy of a lawsuit. It sounds like a not-big-deal from our perspective, but remember that to a child, a school is like a prison. You cannot refuse to be duct-taped if a teacher chooses to do that. You cannot walk out of the classroom. You can't rally for help from a bystander. The teacher is the ultimate and only authority.
