OK I was going to really get all detailed and dramatic with this one, but this right here needs no extra twist to it. It is what it is!
On the way taking my daughter to school, who is in middle school, the seventh grade. She tells me that A student, eight grade male student– punched a teacher in the face. For disrespecting him. If you could have seen the look on my face. So I ask several questions to get to the bottom of such nonsense. My main and final question was “what did the teacher do”? My child tells me that the teacher done NOTHING, just was walking around saying “he’s lucky he’s a child”. from what my daughter says, that this was a grown mans punch, and it almost knocked the poor man off his feet! Also, I learned that this little boy is in a gang, some OOG or something like that. The end results was that he got expelled from school. However, the rest of his gang members are still at the school. I know the teacher that was attacked, and he is a good quality teacher. I really felt sorry for him, but at the same time I was a little upset that he didn’t PUNCH that little boy back. If that were me, I would have lost my job and my religion in the same day.
This my friends, is what I call “Reverse Bullying”! When the students attack and intimidate the teachers.
Pray for student teacher relationships.
