I think the teacher at the minimum needs to be reassigned different classes. Her credibility is nil now and it should be that way. I think the teacher should have some kind of discipline in place for those situations and not baby the kids, but I don't think she should treat them like a dog. Humiliating a 14 year old -- believe me they are extremely sensitive at that age -- is not very bright way to handle the situation.I think it's ridiculous that they may FIRE the teacher over this. All those dipstick parents have never made a mistake or lapse in judgment in their jobs? Idiots.
There's plenty of people looking for teaching jobs. I used "she" but I have to admit I did not focus whether it was a male or female teacher.
