Great message that sends... Oh yeah hitting is BAD, unless of course an authority figure tells you to do it. Then it is acceptable and great fun. Is that the message you want schools telling your kids? What the hell kind of twisted mind does a teacher like that have? Fighting back against a bully attack is one thing, authority figure sanctioned revenge and corporal punishment is a total different ballgame.

Heres how i see it. Teacher didnt hit anyone. She may have facilitiated it. Child endangerment not abuse. She will lose her job no doubt because of all the anti violence parents that have been brainwashed by society to be pussies and have everyone else stand up for them. Lets call the police !!! YAY That day if that happened here I would have hugged that teacher for being human and doing what people forgot how to a few decades ago. If

A six year old child learns from the environment they're raised in. This is wrong on so many levels..yes, the child needs to be shown his behavior is wrong but you simply don't fix violence issues in a small child with more violence. He behaves the way he does because of what he learns at home.

As a kid who was small and bullied this story amuses me. Where was this teacher when I was a kid?
Give her a raise.

This just sends the wrong message. While I do see the point of what the teacher did, it still tells children to fight back with fist instead of words.

Can't you see though how hitting people for hitting people to show everyone that hitting people is bad, makes no sense..?

I have never understood the "bullying" problem. Today society is more sensitive to bullying and instead of getting better it is getting worse. Now teachers are using bullying to go against bullying. whatever happened to standing up for yourself and not being a victim??
I had bullys in my day.. they all learned to respect me and leave me alone... and I am a big softy. Usually bullying is part of jostling for position. IT exists in both men and women. It will never go away, people just need to learn how to cope and realize that just because some people do not like you it does not mean it is the end of the world.
