This is Ian. On May 7th his teacher assaulted him as he came out of the bathroom.
There is a video of the entire assault, but I can't, for the life of me, figure out how to embed it. It's available at the link below.
When I first saw this, it absolutely knocked me breathless. I'm angry to my core and frustrated that there's nothing I can do.
I know, in reason, this isn't the first case; and I'm convinced it won't be the last. Our poor children.
Video Causes Teacher's Suspension
A Riverdale teacher has been suspended for 10 days after a security camera showed her pushing a kindergartner against a wall and then lifting him
up by his shirt and face.
Barb Williams, a kindergarten teacher at the school, was suspended for the remainder of the school year as the district continues looking into the
incident, Superintendent Eric Hoffman said Wednesday.
Hoffman said the district is unsure whether it will pursue further disciplinary measures against the teacher.
Oh my, an unpaid 10 day suspension for the last 10 days of school. How cruel. And the district isn't sure whether they'll "punish" her further or
not? How is this type of action NOT grounds for immediate dismissal? revocation of teaching license? criminal charges?
The teacher, Barb Williams, has retained an attorney. Perhaps she might also consider obtaining a Kevlar vest.
Whether we have children or not, each of us need to get involved in what the children are being taught, how they are being taught, and who is doing
the teaching. The PTB need to be reminded that the country's children are students in a school building and not criminals in a penal institution; that
teachers are educators and not prison guards; that it is never acceptable to bully a child no matter who is doing the bullying.
Yes, this country has massive problems...this is one of them. benrl is right! This system needs to be demolished and rebuilt from scratch. But how do
we go about getting started??
The future of the world is in the hands of the children. In the words of one my favorite songs "Teach the children well!"
