Rrjpp123, what are you saying?
I'm old and a little slow but I'm not sure what is the point of this blog.
Someone please help me here.
Are we being told that a teacher is bullying a student?
I 'think' this maybe in response to the article in Friday's paper about an unnamed teacher being put on administrative leave after overturning a student's desk while in a fit of rage and causing minor injuries to that student.
Yes - my sense was that the blog was addressing this:
In the article it says the teacher became angry.
"angry" and "a fit or rage" are two different things.
I did not re-read the article and was going by memory. But if you're turning over furniture then IMHO you'rep more than just angry
""angry" and "a fit or rage" are two different things."
But either one - in the case of a teacher - is inappropriate, no? I realize that maintaining classroom order can be a frustrating thing for a teacher - especially nowadays. But we're paying them not only to teach but to set an example (sometimes better than parents) for the children. When the teacher has a "tantrum," their status and moral authority goes down the tubes. Once you let the kids know they can push your buttons, you might as well start looking for a new job.
It does give me pause that the teacher wasn't named. I would not enter go needlessly embarrass someone but on the other wonder if this is the beginning of a cover up. Quietly let them put in their notice so they can get employment in another district. I am surpised at the DFCS referral as they do not do third party abuse cases. Only those involving caregivers.
I think they're probably wise not to name names at this point. The last paragraph of the article basically says "the investigation continues," and while it's ongoing there's still a chance the allegations may turn out to be unfounded (as unlikely as that seems from the article).
