do you think that it is right for a teacher to yell/ embarrassing a student in front of other students and parents?

today when i went to pick up my kids from school i saw a teacher yelling at a young boy in front of a bunch of other parents and other students. im not sure what he did but she was making him feel really low and and THEN asked where his mom and/or dad was. 

I think she went about it the wrong way she should have pulled him aside or got his parent before TALKING about it. No matter what they kids did he shouldn't have been embarrassed like she made him feel. How can she expect the students to talk things out and not fight/ yell at each other when shes doing just that?

Teachers are human too. It's Friday and close to Spring Break for a lot of schools. Kids are off the chain and behavior is awful. She may have had a rough day. It's very easy to judge when you don't know all the circumstances.

Yup, my oldest dd's 2nd grade teacher was the same way....shouting, embarrassing kids, she didnt give a darn about the kids. My dd was her target and after talk g to the teacher, school counselor, and principal, we pulled her out for the rest of the year and homeschooled her.

Being a Friday and close to spring break doesn't make it right for her to do that. we wonder why bullying is so out of control. its her JOB, she gets payed to teach our children. i want my kids to be able to look up to their teachers. Its not OK for our kids to "have a bad day" or "just because it Friday" or "Hey spring break is next week" and bully or yell or embarrass any other kid. They would get punished. 

i understand that i don't know what said kid did but, it doesn't matter. she should have taken the kids aside.

All i was trying to say was that i don't think that the teacher handled it the right way. i don't want to start a fight im just saying.

Would you like your mothering judged strictly on one bad moment? Because that's what you are doing to that teacher.

Again I say that we are all human and make mistakes. Do you really think every kid gets in trouble for every bad choice they make every day? Most teachers let A LOT go by without calling kids out for their behavior.

It's extremely easy to judge looking from the outside.

I'm not fighting. I'm merely pointing out another perspective.

Remember she's had that kid all day, all week, and all school year.... Who knows what he did today. Teachers certainly are human.

REALLY wrong on her part, ITA! You NEVER yell at or embarrass a child in public. If she felt it was serious enough to raise her voice over, the child should have been quietly escorted to the office to see the principal and their parent found.

Granted, we don't know what the kid did, and the teacher is only human, but it is her job to be the adult. She should of took the high road and contained her anger. Deal with the kid and his parents in private instead of embarrassing him in front of everyone. It really makes her look bad.

Then y'all would be complaining about her leaving all the kids unattended.
