1. Regardless of this particular situation, I sincerely hope you do not feel that educators should "put up" with blatant disrespect simply because it now comes with the territory. That mindset is appalling and leads to entitled children who then cannot function in the real world.

  2. This was in response to a comment that the child was hit and thrown to the ground. There is no indication in this article that this occurred. The author then stated teachers should just put up with student's attitudes if they wanted to be teachers. Please read the posts, so you will understand the context. I read this article quite thoroughly and believe that I understood it quite well.

  3. Where in this story does it say this child was hit and pushed to the ground? You cannot fire a person based on allegations, and at this point, they are allegations. Again, let the investigation occur! However, your comment as to teachers being required to PUT UP with attitudes shows how little you know about how bad schools have become and displays a marked ignorance as to the tough job the modern educator faces. There is a little thing in life called respect, and if you are insubordinate in the real world, success will certainly be hard to come by. It is NOT part of a teacher's job to put up with outright defiance and disrespect. While it most certainly occurs on a daily basis, it does not mean an educator needs to accept it. That attitude is exactly why children are out of control and entitled. SHAME ON YOU! Please home school your children if you truly believe these words!

  4. The restroom is in the high school, hardly a little boys room. Teachers are required to supervise ALL areas due to the shenanigans that occur, ESPECIALLY in the restrooms. There are two sides to every story. Perhaps this teacher simply tried to stop this boy as he was leaving in an attempt to discuss the obvious disrespect. By the information in the story, it sounds as if these young men have a problem with this educator. If this is the case, they probably have their stories all worked out. There are ALWAYS two sides to every story and teachers are NOT allowed to speak publicly. This is inherently unfair as silence seems to indicate guilt. Let the due process occur.
