    Oh man, what the heck was she thinking? I mean, seriously... *shakes head*

    I'm sure a lot of teachers daydream of this, but you need to leave the profession if even really entertain it seriously let alone actually do it.

    Seriously fucked up. I had a couple of teachers in school (early 90s) that did shit like this: One beat the wrap cause he claimed it was a 'nam flashback, the other lost his job. Hope this bitch loses her credentials and her job.

    When I was a child one of my teacher's banged two boys' heads together because they were arguing (not physically fighting). One boy took off and ran straight home. About half and hour later we were on our morning break when we see the father of the boy striding angrily towards the school with the boy running behind trying to keep up him. About a dozen of us ran around to the classroom window to listen. The father told the teacher 'you are coming to the headmaster with me'. We ran around to the headmaster's window. The father threatened to call the police. The headmaster pleaded with the father to let him deal with it and not call the police. We didn't hear anything more because we saw a teacher coming and we had to scatter.

    But the teacher never did anything like it again.

    Yes, this is all over the news here. Said teacher was indeed fired, but the parent did not contact police, nor let her kid be examined for the record, so pursuing any assault charges may be out of the question. A civil suit is probably more likely, but they're not going to get much from an unemployed teacher or near-bankrupt school district. Granted, this was a special ed kid who apparently was in her class for being a trouble maker and, at that time, had been cruelly mocking a mentally disabled girl and making her cry.

    The teacher just lost it---for above and beyond any reasonable point, however. There's really no excuse for taking it to that level. She'll never teach again.

    As long as you can still recognize the difference, you're fine. When you start hollering and hooting when we do something stupid, you've gone to the darkside, and I'll have to go down to Austin to pull you back.

    Unbelievable! That person should never be allowed around children again. That attack was slow and deliberate, too-- it wasn't just a jerk reaction. The teacher kept going!

    As a teen, I worked afternoons at a day care, and believe me, there were kids there who were bad enough that it made me want to cry. Time out only goes so far, and there were days when I wanted to spank a kid so badly that I had to walk out of the room for a few minutes. So while I sympathize with teachers not having effective tools of discipline to handle children who receive none at home, the teacher in the video is just completely out of control.

    When I was in the second grade my teacher slapped me. I went home and told my mom about it and after she called the cops and raised hell over it with the principal who refused to press charges against the teacher, my mom told me if it happened again, to slap the teacher back. Well, it did, and I did. The teacher was so startled that she never slapped me again.

    That's what I call a physical education!

    Kids are so difficult to deal with, I don't know why they exist.

    A teacher hits any kid of mine and I'm going to kick their lungs in.

    Whoever thought it was a good idea to herd 30 children together into a tiny room with one adult to supervise was insane.

    This kind of thing wouldn't happen if more children were instilled with the belief that adult humans might kill and eat them at any time.

    So, why would they be more prone to this sort of bad teaching?

    :lol:

    Works for Dr House, anyway.

    They really wouldn't be. Charter schools get to drop the problem kids and toss them to regular schools (one of the reasons why their numbers are so good). As such, a teacher in a charter school really shouldn't get as stressed out as one in a regular school

    Honestly? Not surprised. Teachers need more tools for keeping troublemakers under control. There are times when detention doesn't cut it and suspensions are just rewards for some slack-off kids. Doesn't have to be PHYSICAL punishment; just something that'll make kids sit up and take notice.

    What do you all make of this then?

    There is a similar case from the year before.

    The courts in the UK seem to be moving towards the consensus that some pupils' behaviour is so criminal that some teachers are pushed beyond reason.

    BTW - what's the paddle?
