People are outraged at the way this teacher handled a “punishment” of a first grade student with ADHD, and it could lead to some potential legal issues with the local school board.
Being a teacher isn’t an easy job by any stretch of the imagination. Overworked and underpaid, they’re entrusted with a wide variety of children that each have distinct learning styles and personalities. It isn’t easy work.
Sometimes a teacher won’t handle something the correct way with your child. They might snap or be a bit too harsh in their criticism. That’s understandable, I can give mulligans for that and I think that everyone deserves a second chance. However, when a teacher does something that could potentially endanger the life or mental well-being of my kid, all bets are off. Especially when there are legal implications.
That’s what a bunch of people are telling this Redditor who posted their story about the way their first-grade son’s teacher handled a “punishment” for the 7-year-old student.
