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.
Watch video of the mother's account here.
This is unbelievable. Sure, the kid should be punished for hitting another kid but this is way over the line. Didn't the thought of sending him to the Principal's office cross that teacher's puny little mind?
What this teacher did was teach the class a lesson in vigilante style justice; she taught her students to have no faith in the justice system and to take the law into their own hands. Instead of going through the proper disciplinary channels to punish this kid, she decided to fight violence with more violence.
What ever happened to the liberal notion that corporal punishment only teaches kids to handle their problems with violence? Isn't this why so many states are outlawing spanking? All those parents whose children participated in this beating should be raising hell too. They work hard to teach their children non-violence and this teacher undermines their authority with this one act by giving violence her official sanction.
To top it all off, it looks like the school district is going to let this slide because the teacher didn't PERSONALLY hit the student.

Just to UPDATE the story, the teacher has been placed on administrative leave.
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.

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.
So all of you are taking this one woman's word as complete fact? This woman, who you most likely have never heard of before, is definitely telling the entire truth? Absolutely no possibility of the teacher being innocent?
Personally, I do not know this woman who is making this claim. I do not know that she is an honest woman who is telling the truth. This may have happened exactly as she says, but I do not know that as of now.
MOTF = judge??
GoW = jury??
FA = executioner??
What ever happened to innocent until proven guilty? We have no proof of anything. All we have as of right now, is the word of 1 person.

Never really ceases to amaze me what the heck goes on now a days. I'm 22 now, but back in second grade this girl put her hands around my neck and literally choked me and the teacher said "well, he (me) probably deserved it!" Man... That made me furious. I'm not saying what happened to me was as bad as that, but it just curbed my shock value for stories like this. It's a shame crap like this goes on.

I would ALWAYS believe my child over any teacher. Adults lie. Children at that age are not aware of what a lie is. Why would this woman be lying?
