I can only say that I know how my mother would have dealt with it had it been one of us kids. First,she would have beaten us within an inch of our lives for disrespecting the teacher like that. If we had an issue with her we should have calmly stated our case and come home to tell our mother what happened and let her decide what to do about it. Secondly,she would have drug us up to the school the next day to YES apologize to the teacher swearing to never do something that stupid and disrespectful again. And that would be the worst part of all. Thing is,it would never have got that far to begin with because we had been taught from the get go,that agree or disagree with an adult that had power over us,we were to treat them with respect no matter what,even if we didn't agree with what they were saying. We left any fighting up to our mother to do when she came up to the school.
This is a big problem you see in society now with the teenagers. They haven't been taught to respect those in authority from the time they are little,so they think nothing of challenging authority when they are teens and feeling their oats so to speak. Then they get shot by a cop for thinking they are a bad ass or end up in jail. Because the law is used to dealing with bad ass people and has a 'special' place for them. Its called prison. Time for parents to wake up and realize they need to raise their kids to act like little adults when dealing with adults so they don't do stupid things.

I work in a secondary school (High School) in the UK, and there is a rule here that goes unspoken, basically no matter how bad the kid is they DO NOT GET THROWN OUT! Its really the unwritten rule. I've seen some horrible kids, just a few weeks ago a fourteen year old girl was in a classroom and started to chat Pedophile at a teacher, who'd been working there for about twenty years, she tried to get the class to copy her and chant with her, and the TEACHER was suspended while they investigate the claim even though the entire class said that she was doing to course a problem after he said that she failed a test.
apparently she shouted something like 'You only didn't mark it right because I said no to you, Pedophile' and started shouting it.
Schools have been like this for a while, they wont throw the kids out no matter what they do. Oh the teacher was found innocent recently but then suddenly he came out that he was going to retire five years early - There is a rumour going around that the school governors gave him the option of either retiring or being fired but no one knows for sure.
Those of you who are teachers with class and patience certainly get my respect.
I am happy that I am not a teacher and you cannot pay me any amount to deal with these insane students.
