Yesterday, I posted a question about is it ok for a teacher to tell kids to shut up. Today I got more information and I'm not sure what, if anything to do.
My son's in the 3rd grade. His substitute yesterday said "God damnit, just shut up" to the class and called a girl fat. Today more details came out. Apparently she is an older lady with a cane, and she used that cane to hit several students. One got hit in the throat and nearly vomited. My son said that when he was tying his shoe she walked over and squeezed his neck and shook him.
I called the principal today, but he never returned my call. My son said that his teacher said that sub will never be allowed in the school again, so I know the admin is aware of the problem. If they promise to never hire her again, I can let it go. But should I call the police and file a report regardless, so that there is a record of her behavior? What is the next step?

The school is going to go into "damage control" mode. I think your best bet it to do a poliece report to ensure that this abusive woman isn't allowed to work at more schools.
That should be police report not poliece report. sorry.
