The real issue is who's responsibility it is to discipline the child. A teacher who is professional and trained would know how to deal with child
other than tossing him in a duffle bag. I have two special teachers in my family and they are appalled. They have troubled students of all types and
even when they get physical, they have non-violent ways and they make sure they talk to the parents in their ways of defusing situations such as
these. How is putting a kid in duffle bag with balls inside it considered therapy?
The teacher should have defused the situation or at worst, called the child's parents in to defuse the situation, not stuff him in the bag.
Thankfully the child was not harmed. I am not opposed to physical disciplining of children, but it should be done by the parents without anger and the
child made to understand the reason for the punishment. Children are great, but don't kid yourself, they require a bit of effort and work on the
parents' side. Teachers are there for education, supervision, safety, and only mild forms of discipline involving extra assignments, time techniques,
and loss of time punishments, nothing physical in nature.
