Teacher writes "LOSER!" on children's test papers? What would you have done?!

A teacher in NC wrote "-20% for being a LOSER!" on a girl's test paper. Her mom complained, and the remarks stopped for a little bit. But then they returned. The teacher said it was his way of "relating to the students." The teacher has been teaching for 12 years. Some people even defended his use of discouraging comments on wrong answers.

I for one think it's unacceptable! It's bad enough for a child to have to see a wrong answer on a test, but to be called a loser too?!

  • Yeah, that's incensing. As if kids aren't being bullied enough by their peers these days...

  • The teacher is male...maybe "Dick muncher," "A**hole" or "Douchbag" would be more appropriate...

  • My kid would be pulled out of that class and I would be having a long and unpleasant talk with school officials. That teacher needs to be fired.

  • It would NEVER happen twice, not after I got through with the school.

    Doesn't that violate "zero tolerance" bullying rules, BTW?

  • good luck firing a teacher - in my high school they caught a gym teacher in the closet with 2 students- she got suspended.

  • Oh I definately would take that to the school board and demand my child be moved. I would demand they let the teacher know that sort of behavior will no longer be tolerated.
