It is nice that young people are standing up against teachers that are out of line. Young people today are not being taught that because teachers are authority figures that they have to be respectful and obey them like many of us were being told during my school days. Thank goodness! It is nice to see young people stand up for themselves and expect that adults be responsible for their actions. I think attitude is everything and many of the young people today can tell if a teacher is out of line or that something is going on that needs to be investigated. Too many teachers think they are above the law and take advantage of young people. I went through school during the 60's and 70's when we were still in a huge transition about right and wrong social behavior and when young woman should stand their ground or be submissive, consequently I was yelled at, put down, had my papers read out loud to the class to shame me for miss use of punctuation, spelling etc., sexually hit on and in general humiliated from early on. I think if I had tried to even bring up what was happening to me at school, my parents would have blamed me, so why bother. I do not think my parents were much different from the norm of that time. I was not the only child that this was happening to so I did not feel alone but it still did not make it right. Thank goodness I was a strong person and was able to forgive these individuals. The icing on the cake was when I very humbly and timidly entered adult education in my 40's only to be trapped, manipulated and then sexually abused by the director of my program that had been abusing women in his program for close to 20 years along with others of his staff. This is when I put my foot down and turned him in. There was an investigation and he was removed from his position and forced to retire. But since that time I was further taken advantage of by a vigilante hate crime group brought on by the final school I went to, a University. So for the last twenty years of my, ebbing to an end, life I have been being tormented by education. I have not worked a long term job since 2002 and am not allowed to as a result of this vigilante group that gets me fired, they get information on me an use it against me daily. No attorney will take the case because it is so abstract. It has been a nightmare and not one that I wish on my worst enemy. Hopefully this young woman will not have a vigilante group be forced on her as a result of her stepping forward. I learned later that instructors and professors have unspoken rights to take advantage of students because in the early 20th century professors did not make much money and taking advantage of students sexually was part of the unspoken perks of the job. I learned this information from the ombudsman of the University I am currently being taken advantage of. Warn your youth, male or female, before they attend any higher education institution. Beware!
Fred is right, 1st. graders should not call other kids (poopy heads), if the other kid is a(**** HEAD) ,they should be called (**** HEADS)
Well, she WAS a math teacher. Numbers are her life.
What's wrong with boobage? It's better than fun bags.
You don't resign if you are not guilty.
It used to be that the students were at the mercy of the teacher and principal; now it seems to be the other way around. I think that, in many schools, being a teacher must be a lot like being a corrections officer.
I am so done with teaching for the same reason, Administrative BS and the games. I am so much happier now, and it's only getting better for me in a new career!
"boobage"? REALLY? are we 11 years old???
It was a middle school. 12 or 13, maybe.
Oh my, it must be something in the water in Florida, because every vile thing that happens in this country is out of Florida.
Your an idiot
He is right and you must have been educated in Florida with grammar like that
