  • Based on this? No. The description is incomplete. And if he was distracting other students with his misbehavior, I'd support her decision to remove him so that he didn't interfere with the learning of others ... and I'd suggest that she keep him in from recess so that he could do the work he missed.

  • Yep. So instead of working with him she just ignores and isolates him?

  • Yes, hows he learning to control himself, hows he learning lesson, don't they have teacher or aid who could come get him. I would be mad and at the school

  • Isolating him is not the solution. Is he alone in the hallway? Not good. If he is truly misbehaving he needs to be sent to the office or to guidance. I'm not sure if isolating is considered corporal punishment or not. Each state has different laws regulating this. If it continues happening you might want to contact his teacher, principal and guidance counselor to set up a meeting. There are other more effective means of discipline to handle this problem. I don't like the idea of placing him in the hallway. Good luck.

  • You need to go help out at the schools and see what is going on. It could be the teacher with the problem?

    I always volunteer because I had very bad teachers who mistreated me, so I do not trust teachers.

  • That's not solving the problem. Yes, I would be mad. I would also talk to him myself to see if you can get to the bottom why he is doing it.

  • What would you prefer she do? I think he may like to be in the hallway. I think she should find a different solution like making him walk/run laps during recess. He should have to sit in the front row while she is speaking.

  • I would need more information to answer. How old is your child? What do you mean when you say he has trouble concentrating at school? What kind of issues does he have, medical, social anything more you can add to this situation?
