Yet one more reason for banning electronic devices in schools.

The student called her mom and handed the phone to the teacher?
Schools ought to publish an explanation of what will be expected of students for parents.  Just a formal reminder that raising their children is still their job, and that includes preparing them for when they disagree with a situation's appointed authority figure.  Maybe put some stuff in there like "by age 10, an average child with competent parents would _______.   You can test your own child with this by _____.  Please inform the teacher if they _____, for everyone's safety and convenience." so they know how they're doing.
I bet a lot of parents aren't especially lazy or malicious, they just haven't put a lot of thought or planning into raising their child.  Like someone getting a dog, they just do what feels right and tackle problems as they come.

Principal Clarinet: Yet one more reason for banning electronic devices in schools.


Good lord yes.

It's obvious they weren't learning anything, the teacher is a dumbass.

This should be very simple. "Here's your cell phone, which you aren't allowed to have while I'm teaching. Leave my class now. Does anyone else have a cell phone? Oh you, with the video there? Give it to me or leave."

If the kid doesn't leave, then escalate by calling the principal or assistant principal into the class.

But that being said, a student that old who does not see a teacher as a boundary-setting authority, is going to have a long, painful life.

You assume the principal or assistant principal will be supportive of the teacher.

Too many schools have dumb Dumb DUMB policies that don't help their teachers maintain order in the classroom. What should be simple is often anything but.

1) Should have told the student to put the makeup away.  If it's still out after a couple of minutes, warning.
2) If she starts arguing with you (or pulls out the cell phone like she just did), another warning.
3) If she continues to argue, office/appropriate location (districts I work in have special areas for the kids to go to when they get sent out of the classroom).
4) If she refuses to leave, call office/security and have her escorted out.

If she had attempted to touch me, I would have gotten out of the way with my hands up to show that I wasn't going to fight back or touch her.

I've had kids get up in my face before, but I just tell them to step back.  I don't touch them or anything.

When handed the phone to talk to the mother, she could have gone with, "Hello, your daughter is being disruptive in class.  She is being suspended for the day.  Please come pick her up.  *click* [hand phone back] Report to the principal's office and wait for your mother."

2013-04-25 02:07:36 PM  
if that was a child of mine i would have stomped on the phone in front of the teacher and the child.
and that would just be the beginning. if you can be that loud for a phone i would ask for her entire grade at school be assembled and for her to apologize to the teacher. nothing is better for punishment than embarrassment. like being a teenager and having to talk in front of hundreds of people.

Agreed; you can't rely on others to maintain order in the classroom.  If you constantly need backup, then you'll never regain control by yourself and you might as well give up.

I think it largely has to do with growing up in the Information Age. People used to be able to believe that the fact that someone was a police officer or a politician or a teacher meant that they could be trusted. And trust is an essential component of respect. In that sense I feel bad for those kids, growing up without feeling like they can trust anyone. It makes me think of that old psychology experiment where they separated newborn monkeys from their mothers and ended up with this:

We've guaranteed that teachers aren't seen as authority figures, though. That's the sad part - teachers are seen as servants, not masters, these days. The idea that a student can beat up a teacher, and then claim it's the teacher's fault because she didn't get security in there, is ludicrous - but that's because the cop, not the teacher, is seen as an authority figure. When all you respect is force, force is the only thing that works. That's the problem.

We've, in the fullest sense of the word, emasculated teachers, and we did so in front of their students time and again. We've removed the authority teachers once had, through our constant denigration of what they do, how they do it, and what they get for doing it. Small wonder that students now treat teachers the way parents treat teachers, isn't it?

I have no idea why anyone with the education to become a teacher chooses the profession these days.
 
2013-04-25 02:53:20 PM  
I would think the school has a cell phone policy for students. Most do nowadays. Usually, no cell phone use during school hours unless an emergency. I don't think make-up qualifies.

ScullyToo: side note to you; I'm sure that your approach works with kids who start off reasonably well behaved, but i've seen plenty of times where verbal warning only seem to escalate the situation.  When they are dropping the F bomb in the class to the teacher, I wouldn't bother with a verbal warning.

As a "older" teaching applicant entering his senior year for secondary education , I'm getting a kick out of this. I've had real jobs for 25 years. I can handle being told my services are no longer needed. I wonder how many times this will happen to me before I get canned. I hope I can make it 20 years ( will be 65 then ), but if not I can go back to retail management or banking. A piece of chalk can be sharpened into a nice shank.......bring it!!!!

2013-04-25 03:16:56 PM  
Well, ideally a teacher should not get upset at a student to where violence is needed, but I've seen videos of teachers getting jumped from behind for minor scoldings. Most districts won't allow mace or retractable battons for teachers. I wonder what's going to happen in districts where armed teachers will be at. I wish some of the places I've subbed had the panic button like this teacher had available. I never want to hurt a student, but if one tries to make my wife a widow, I have been busy thinking of ways to not let that happen. I know one teacher that carries a fat sharpie in his pocket that is sharpened into a shank. Last year, in my state, we had a teacher killed breaking up a fight.

I agree with all of you saying the teacher handled it wrong.

Teacher should have beat down on that little shiat the moment she started getting mouthy.
 
2013-04-25 06:20:19 PM  
Yeah, no. I don't care if there was a little white button that the teacher was supposed to press. The fact that the teacher didn't do that isn't a justification for you to act like an asshat. The student basically gave a pathetic excuse for an apology but then turned around and tried to make it the teacher's fault. Sorry, it doesn't work that way. What if somebody gets mugged and when the person tries to fight back, the mugger gets to defend his actions by saying "Well, they should have called the cops after I took their wallet. It's not my fault they had to defend themselves."?
 
2013-04-25 06:29:47 PM  
My wife teaches, and I used to teach as well.  Here's the problems:

1) teacher should have spoken and acted with more confidence, and just taken the stuff and ignored the student.  She made the mistake of continuing the conversation, which gave the student more fuel for the fire.

2) she also should have moved to get the student out of the room.

3) at one point in time, it looked like she was holding the phone up in the air, taunting the student.  Bad idea.  Put the shiat in your desk and then tell the student to sit down.

4) the phone should never have been a factor.  Unfortunately, schools have policies against them, but admins refuse to enforce because they know mom and dad are on the other end.  But teacher should have confiscated it as soon as the kid took it out.

5) the kid got under her skin.  Big no-no.  Both my wife and I have had students (and parents) screaming in our faces, threatening to beat us, kill us, whatever, in the harshest language you can imagine.  If you act agitated or upset, that only keeps them going.  Removing yourself or just sitting back and letting them scream it out is all you can do.  In this case, she had a class in there, so she should have let the student say her piece and then tell her to sit down, it will be discussed later.

For those of you asking why she didn't call the admins, I give you a hearty LOL.  Most admins are concerned only with paperwork.  Disciplinary issues create tons of paperwork, and most of them have adopted "classroom management" as a buzzword.  In other words, teachers are told not to send discipline problems to them. My wife has taught for almost a dozen years now, and she rarely sends kids to the office, because she knows the only response will be "why didn't you handle it in your classroom?"  Never mind that the "it" was a student threatening to kill her.

\one year was so bad, she eventually got the admins to give her a teacher's aide
\\a 6'5, 300 pound teacher's aide
\\\but only after she made the admins sit in her room and see what the students were doing
 
2013-04-25 06:34:36 PM  

I appreciate those of you talking like you've been there. I use to work in a wilderness residential facility with some extremely angry kids.


I have had knives, sticks, rocks, lit kerosine lanterns, broken glass, etc thrown at me. I've had kids swing axes at me, attempt to stab me with pencils, pens, sharppened toothbrushes. Hell, I once had a kid put a stapple gun in my face and threaten to shoot me in the eye.


My mentality was this

- can I safely (for myself and the youth) intervene?

- have I voiced my expectations?

- is this student an immediate threat to themselves or others?

- is other staff present and available?

- can I safely and propperly take this kid to the ground without injury?



If I did not accurately asses every one of those issues, I failed that kid. And if I ever put my hands on a kid in a situation like that, it was because I was putting them in a full prone restraint.
 
2013-04-25 07:03:05 PM  
My mom is a teacher in a small town. Her worst experience was a 5th grade boy in the class beside hers.

She knew from previous years the boy had major anger management issues and the boys father was one of the only people who could calm him down. In the father's infinite wisdom, he decided to enroll his boy in some sort of martial arts to "focus him and calm him down". All it did was teach this boy how to fight. As in, this kid was a black belt in the 5th grade.

She said one day she starts hearing screams from the classroom beside hers. She talks off out of her room and goes over to the other teachers room. She said she walked in to the boy standing over his pregnant teacher who was curled up on the ground. My mother, like myself, comes from health stock so she is rarely intimidated. But this boy comes at her, kicks her knee, and she goes down too. According to her that is when all hell broke loss. Half the kids are fleeing the classroom as the other half are sitting there in shock or crying. Apparently the angered boy then fled from the school and it took police about an hour to find him. They had to have 3-4 full grown officers tackle him and pin him.

Fun Fact: The boy was suspended for a couple months and reassigned to another elementary school in town. The teachers at the new school only found out from other teachers that told them what happened. It seems that due to privacy issues schools are not allowed to inform each other of potential issues.

If the kid doesn't leave, then escalate by calling the principal or assistant principal into the class.


Not sure where the video was, but in California a student is allowed to have a cell phone in his/her possession.  Using it during school hours, however, can get you in trouble.  A teacher has no right to confiscate a cell phone that is not being used.  The biatch in the video, however, should be expelled (based on how she speaks, she hasn't learned a damn thing so it's unlikely more school will benefit).  The teacher should have pushed the security button the moment the student made the first threatening move.

Here's how it should happen.

Student: {Stands up}
Teacher:  Return to your seat immediately
Student: Fark you!
Teacher {pushes security button}

If the student assaults the teacher, then fark the student, let the teacher use whatever force is necessary. A teenager is big enough to cause serious damage and old enough to know better.

Actually, I have....on a regular basis.  I've been a substitute teacher for the past couple of years in middle and high school (next week I start a job as a paraprofessional to finish out the year).  This is the procedure of the school districts that I work in.  The kids know it works this way, and they push the limits.  This mostly works in middle school...in high school, they don't get the multiple warnings, it's automatic.
