  • I cant believe that teacher...Why the F did she choose this career path if she could not handle the challenge. Instead of writing Loser on the grade, she should have scheduled one-on-one time with that student or scheduled a meeting with the parents to discuss possible tutor or after school programs.

  • I would go down to that school and make her feel like she is 2 inches tall.

  • Well of course I would report the teacher to school administration and see that somethng be done about it. I would hope a teacher like this would be fired...but you never know. And changing classrooms would be a necessity because he/she probably wouldn't be teaching my child fairly. Oh, and I didnt read the article, lol.

  • yeah i saw that. this is what i have to say "REDICULOUS!!! FIRE the TEACHER" i do not care if ur "trying to be on their level" its bs, u should be building these students up instead of tearing them down. and i would like to have a tlking to any of these parents that supposedly supported him. if it was their kid repeatedly being harrassed by a teacher, they wouldnt take it sitting down. rediculous.

  • I saw this. I'd be calling my lawyer and we'd be at the school in a heartbeat! Then we'd be watching the teacher, principal, and school board members squirm in their seats at the meeting(s) and enjoy the whole thing! There is no excuse for a teacher or anyone to insult a child!
