Question: Here's a video of a teacher beating her student, after the boy had a confrontation with one of the girls in the classroom. The teacher then started handing down some punishment. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0GJUddHbp... It's obvious that the mother of the boy defended her child. Did she do enough to discipline him to not be threatening to little girls? Was it right for the teacher to instill fear in the boy in order to discipline him? Do you think the teacher committed child abuse? Was it right to do so? You decide. Share you thoughts. your*

There are 4.2 million teachers who do not act like this daily. that teacher was fired - and in fact was at a charter school. Charters are famous for taking in people who have no business teaching. The parent of that child should sue the charter for endangering her child. Most public schools in the US are in a multiple year training series of bully prevention. When you throw unprepared adults into the maelstrom that is middle school - you get negative results if you dont do the homework involved in selection and training. Blaming that parent might be political - or a kneejerk reaction - but this is an adolescent - lets be honest - they arent the best at controlling their words and actions. Middle school teacher for 21 years- it isnt for everyone.

Zubin Originally Answered: Does this cell phone video of a Houston Special Needs teacher beating up a kid show cell phones in schools.?
I personally think that schools wish to avoid cell phones because of the visual and audio recording capacity. Now, they claim it to be a distraction and a disruption....but come on....if all phones are off, there is not to much to disrupt...this is about control. Schools really do not wish kids to be able to record some of their naughty secrets, such as abusive personnel. This lady is obviously very physically abusive, however there are personnel that bully kids physically and emotionally too. Some demean, provoke, threaten, berate, humiliate, cajole, and antagonize students beyond belief. And no one talks about it. It is like the BIG elephant in the living room that is destroying everything in its path, yet, no one talks about it despite everyone in the house knowing it is there. This is called a dysfunctional setting which describes many schools throughout the nation. Most every child (regardless of age...Pre-K through High school) can tell you of at least one that fits the description of a bully. They are everywhere as it is a world wide problem, not just a national one. This by no means includes all educators, as there are many teachers whom are altruistic, giving, and utterly fantastic and can pull the best out of kids by continual positive reinforcement, which is the real key to motivating people, including kids and adults. However this is not true across the board. Teacher bullying is a world wide problem and the only way to solve this problem is to rid the obstacles that continue to keep these people on the payroll and in the system. In the United States, this refers to spineless administration and teaching unions that often come to the aid of the abusive teacher. Now that probably will not happen in this particular instance, being there is nationwide uproar about this instance. However once a teacher is tenured, they are very hard to rid. Teaching is a profession and like all professions should be regulated and scrutinized for public safety. However many abusive personnel are protected by the teaching unions and sometimes good ol boy administration locally, and instead of being out and out terminated, they are shuffled from school to school and thus able to abuse more captive students in their charge. Personally, I believe this entire charter school in Houston should be investigated, as teacher bullying if often indicative of a pattern. This lady was caught red handed because of a cell phone, however what about the students she has probably harmed prior to this instance, which was not video-recorded? I am relatively confident that this is not the only student whom has suffered from her wrath. Furthermore, what about the teaching personnel that witnessed this and did nothing to intervene? They should be fired and criminally prosecuted as well, as this omission of their intervening, led to this boy being harmed physically and emotionally. I really could care a less if this was a catholic school, a charter school for the disciplinary problem kids, or a nursery school. Violence and bullying is wrong. Additionally, adults are supposed to act as role models for kids, and I certainly want no child of mine mimicking this sort of behavior from this teacher. That woman is a disgrace to the teaching profession, and I agree, she should face criminal charges as well. Hopefully in addition to being terminated, she will be prevented from working in any other setting around children. I am all for cameras in the class room with outside monitoring. I have had discussions with many teachers over the years who disagree with this, however I believe a good teacher could care a less, who is in observation of their class time, as they are doing their job and not harming kids in their wake. Only the questionable or out and out abusive ones (emotionally or physically), do not wish for someone to be looking in over their shoulder, as being caught, may threaten their livelihood. See link below about teacher bullying, which is rarely talked about, however happens often and has been happening for many years. However like you pointed out above in your commentary, it is getting more and well deserved attention, due to the age of modern technology (i.e cell phones). It is a very intelligibly written report by a PHD educated individual in Springfield OH, who studied many on this subject. http://www.stopbullyingnow.com/teachers%... Also see link below by Jordan Riak, who is a hefty advocate in CA to eradicate the abuses that have gone on in schools for years. He is a former teacher. Excellent reading from a respected and outspoken advocate. http://www.scribd.com/doc/24019258/Abuse... Parents must listen to their children. The teacher is just not always right! Stay involved. Involvement and awareness help solve problems! You sound as though you and your family have a good head on your shoulders and care about others. Continue to ca

This is absolutely unacceptable, and the teacher deserved to get fired. If there was a student fight happening it is the teacher's duty to stop it, separate the students, and get the administration involved. What this teacher did was yell at, trap in a corner, and then beat a young boy. I'm glad she's not teaching any longer.

When I was subbing, I had one incident where a boy was draped all over a girl (both about 15) and she was screaming that he was grabbing her sexually (she put in somewhat more colorful terms). I pulled him off and stood him against the wall with my forearm across his throat. That was when the girl started to scream again that they should go to the principal to get me fired. Right after the period ended, I went to the principal and told him what had happened. He said that I had done the right thing since my physical actions were appropriate to the situation. I had not crossed any bounds of reasonableness.

Of course it's NOT right. No one and I mean no one should hit another human being. Violence is never the answer. Doesn't matter if it's a teacher, parent, etc. It's not right at all. There are other ways to handle things without hitting and violence.

I'd actually believe that story if you were instead a male. The obvious answer is to switch teachers/evaluators--the longer he sees you as a tease, the worse your evaluations are likely to become at the end. This situation seems to follow you, doesn't it? Practicing for a convincing and profitable, yet false, statement in the future?.... 25 Aug 2009, 10:50 am | click here for the answers Resolved Question: Is this sexual harassment? I work at Staples’ Copy middle and my manager makes me really uncomfortable. It started with him just complimenting me on the way I looked or smelled often, but now it’s progressed into something more hands-on. For example, he occasionally touches my hair and tells me how he thinks it’s really soft. He also starts to rub my shoulders, back, or neck when he’s standing beside me because apparently, “I look too tense,” or he’ll put his arm around my shoulders. Along the same lines, when I’m standing at the copier, he’ll arrive up behind me, put his hands on my waist, and ask me what I’m doing in a whisper; or, if I happen to be sitting at the copier, he’ll arrive up from behind and lean over me in a really awkward way or he’ll sit next to me, rub my leg, and try to start a conversation. Lately, he’s been asking me a lot of questions about my personal life and texting me while I’m not working saying things like, “Staples is hell right now. Wish you were here to help me.” When I do eventually arrive in for my shift, he walks up to me and gives me prolonged hugs, telling me what a rough day it’s been and how glad he is that I’m finally there. He also calls me “babe” sometimes, which is weird, and I’ve seen him watching me on occasion from the isles. It’s really awkward and I’ve told him to cease and that I’m the nice of girl who likes her personal space OVER and OVER again, but it just doesn’t receive through. Some coworkers think it’s creepy how he treats me, while most of the guys just say he’s being friendly. However, today, a customer even asked me if we were dating, based on the way he acted towards me. Are these normal things to do and am I overreacting to him just being friendly, or is there really something wrong going on here? Quitting isn’t really an option because it’s really difficult to receive a job in my area these past few months and my mom was just laid off. So, any other suggestions on what I would do with this situation are greatly appreciated. Thank you for the advice in advance! -Katarina Alighieri
