Teachers used to enforce discipline in their classes and were backed by the Principal and the School Board. Now it's a free-for-all, and either you're the prisoner of bureaucratic,'zero tolerance' rules, or you're on your own.

Good work, Graeme! Brave action!

I watched the video of this young man, he is very impressive, and awesome to stand up for not only his teacher but for himself as a gay teen. He is a brave and strong soul....

It's not right that this homosexual teacher is carrying on with this child who was told and believes he's also a homosexual. These pedophile homosexual teachers shouldn't be molesting the school children.
Yes, following your "logic" the gay male teachers should be turned into heterosexuals so they can rape women (and children) like all the other str8 males do. Amen.
