Teacher forces child to sit on floor for weeks.
What would you do if you felt a teacher was being overly harsh over a situation with your child?
A 1st grade got in trouble for writing on her desk. Had to clean it and apologize to janitor and have a conversation with principal, BUT the teacher took it one step further and forced her to sit on the floor and use a clip board for a couple of weeks.
I myself in a similar situation. My son would make odd statements that his teacher was mean. As mom, i tuned it out. It went on and off for all of 4th grade. Report card was good, and conferences went well, Finally in May I HEARD him started getting concerned. I verified his story with friends, and called another parent who was being treated the same way.
TURNS OUT teacher singled out 4 boys (class clown group i guess) and would rip into them a couple of times a week for small things/mistakes they made and would not let up until she had them in tears in front of the class. We reported this and and the principal was suppose to do an investigation and found out he got a promotion to another school and she had planned on retiring any way so nothing was done.
That was one of the first things that turned me to home schooling years later.
