Question: When I was in second grade, I was walking away from the classroom, pissed, when the teacher starts saying "BLAH BLAH BLAH HOMEWORK BLAH BLAH STUDY BLAH BLAH BLAH MATH etc...". I then said "shut up". He grabbed me by my arm, forcefully dragged me into the classroom, and started yelling/screaming at me as if he wanted to murder me. Was that a neccessary thing for him to do? 1. This was at an American school in Damascus, Syria. It would most likely be harder to find a lawyer there. 2. This took place in 2005, which was 7 years ago. I can't hold a grudge for that long. The School followed American disciplinary rules, and the teacher was American.

pretty sure he did not say, BLAH BLAH BLAH HOMEWORK BLAH BLAH STUDY BLAH BLAH BLAH MATH etc.. I mean really maybe you should have been listening better...plus that is totally inappropriate for you to say shut up these people have dedicated there lives to educate you. although he did not handle the situation like he should have you were in the wrong also...

Look up information pertaining to Title IX of the 1972 Education Amendments Act. It states that it specifically prohibits many forms of sex discrimination in education. Or, the idea of teaching sex education in the classroom and to what extent should it be taught. Or, research bullying, suicides, and "invisible" students that have behavioral or emoitional disorders and then turn their schools into their own hunting ground, i.e. Columbine and others. How much fault or blame goes into the school district, teachers, and peers and how much goes to family? Those are just a few off the top of my head. Good luck!

That is very mean and bad. Even though that would seem pretty normal in nature and the orginal laws of the world, We have grown a society that "fixes" those laws so they make our lives more comfortable and happy.That is a perfect example of behaviour that goes against modern society, by acting wild and more cruel than a monkey. Those people like that deserve to be banished for our society that promotes comfort, and to be send back in the wild, where she would probably be dead in a few seconds. Explain to the daughter the nature of some people and how wrong and bad they are,and that there is nothing wrong with her, and then try to get the teacher fired.

If you were in Syria, you're lucky you weren't whipped for saying "shut up" to a teacher. Completely different rules in other countries- they don't treat students with kid gloves.

That for starters is completely illegal and he could lose the rite to teach. It is a form of personal invasion, violence, child abuse and unncessesary force. You could quite easily sue and win. And it most certainly was NOT a neccessary thing to do. I personally would have pushed to have him explused from the school as a teacher.

I teach in the city too, and I know it's a challenge! There are a few things you can try... 1) Group of the Day- My students are seated in groups of 5 or 6, and I award points for various things throughout the day. Say, the first group to open their science books to the right page, or a point if everyone is in uniform, or if they are being attentive... There are times I will be specific in which behaviors earn points, and other times I'll just "catch them" doing something I like. The group with the most points at the end of the day get homework passes, a small piece of candy, or some other little reward. 2) I buy raffle tickets and use them to reward kids on an individual basis. Sometimes I'll walk through the room and just drop tickets on their desks as they're working together appropriately in groups, when I see someone helping someone out, when they are in line, etc. On Friday afternoons, I have a raffle. I save up freebies like notepads, stickers, happy meal toys, and dollar store items. They are all just looking to win something, it isn't as important what the prizes are... I usually have ten prizes (I've also used the next week's jobs as prizes, like 'messenger' and 'paper passer.') 3) If I need to get their attention, I clap twice, and they echo with two claps. If they continue talking after the claps, I write a letter to spell "PRIZE" on the board. Whenever we spell the word, they lose a prize in the raffle. We have lost a few raffles, but this is pretty effective in convincing the one out-of-control kid to knock it off. When all your classmates are giving you the stink-eye, you tend to rethink your behavior. Make specific praise and consistent adherence to the rules your main focus. I'd repost and reteach these rules again. Good luck!
