Mom: Teacher made kids beat son
A mother claims boys in her son's kindergarten class beat him up, and that the teacher told them to do it.
Rolinda Dunmire rushed to pick up her son, Amos, from his class on Friday, Feb. 18, after his teacher called and said the boy was acting up. When she got to the school, her son was crying.
"[The teacher] approached me and said that my son had hit another kid and, to punish him, she had all the boys in the class beat him up," said Dunmire.
Dunmire claims the teacher had eight other boys line up and start swinging.
Mora Independent School's Superintendent Thomas Garcia said the district was aware that something happened and is doing a full investigation, but the teacher remains in the classroom.
Garcia said since there is no claim the teacher actually made physical contact with the boy, there is no reason to pull her out.
If the school district does determine that the fight was ordered by the teacher, Garcia said it will be handled as a personnel issue, and could not discuss the punishment.

We should try to get in touch with this teacher and ask him or her what it feels like to be a complete piece of crap.

If I were in that parent's shoes, I would have offered the teacher a choice; either I call the police on her or dispatch some vigilante justice of my own on her for what she did to my child. Give her a taste of her own medicine, as well as some of her own blood in the process.

This is a good example of why parents homeschool their kids. I have a feeling that public schools as they are now will be going the way of the dinosaur. I think some school districts will find that online schooling will be more cost effective. I mean if you really think about it, it would eliminate alot of bullying issues don't you think?edit on 24-2-2011 by queenofsheba because: spelling

From what the mother said, the teacher right up and told her that she had instructed the students to beat up her son.
The teacher was still the classroom as of Wednesday. The superintendent initially said she couldn't be removed because the district was still looking into the allegations. However, on Thursday, workers in his office and the victim's mother said the teacher was put on administrative leave.

'Cause murder solves so much, right? And makes you a morally superior being, I'm sure.
Quit the chest-beating, it looks stupid.
Sometimes a real punch in the nose is all it takes to straighten a kid out. The problem with the disciplinary system as it's is that it offers no appropriate punishment. For the kid, getting sent to the principal and being suspended is like having a day off from school. They'll just do it over and over until they get thrown in jail because they have no life skills. Then they just drain the state budget until everyone is taxed onto the street. We have an ineffective over-bloated system.

Teachers make mistakes with kids all the time as do parents, it seems the only difference is that the teacher gets sued and the parents lose the kid if child services find out.
I once had a teacher hand over control to a big rough kid for some football training while he went off to the toilet, now this big kid looked around then caught my gaze and shouted get ******y. I ran faster than I had ever run and adrenaline kicked in real hard with only the smaller faster kids catching me and one by one I belted them until finally the bigger kids caught me and beat the living hell out of me.
This was one of the best lessons I could of learned at that stage in life, beatings back then had definitive lines you didn't cross like kicking whilst on the ground or stomping. Now I say we are bringing up generation after generation of sooks that never do anything wrong in their own eyes and the only punishment they get is to have their iPod taken off them for 10 minutes or no internet for an hour.
The lessons that kid in this case may have learned about life and society are probably more than he would learn in a whole year of being pandered to by some PC teacher. The only thing damaged here is the mothers pride but I think she will be more than financially re-numerated for the child's suffering.
