Is it normal or acceptable for a teacher to make a 3rd grade student stand for the day to receive their lessons because they were seen falling asleep in class?

Sure, why not, when I went to school the paddle would keep them awake.

here we go again. some lazy parent who raised a lazy kid. probably doesn't put their child to bed on time or fix them a healthy breakfast to start their day right. why is it that crappy people are allowed to breed? There should be some kind of an iq test or something. Anyway, good luck raising your entitled little brat. i sure wish paddling was still allowed. sounds like the parent could use some paddling also. tell your kid to not fall asleep and to shut up and respect authority. problem solved. oh, and you could use a big dose of shut up nobody cares also. idiot parents.

here we go again. some crazy person who makes no sense attempted to participate in a meaningful conversation. probably doesn't put their mouth to mute on time or supply their mind with a healthy dose of anti-stupid to start their day right. why is it that stupid people are allowed to breed? There should be some kind of an iq test or something. Anyway, good luck surviving your entitled little brain. i sure wish paddling was still allowed. sounds like a person like you could use some paddling also. tell your parents to not breed again and to have respect for humanity by encouraging all their descendants to get fixed. problem solved. oh, and you could use a big dose of shut up nobody cares also. idiot person.

I think some people are assuming what may be happening, first thing the parent of this child needs to have them checked by a doctor only if they are put to bed at a decent time and they have been fed a healthy breakfast maybe there is a underlying cause that is happening, example: if a child has ADHD and they are on medicine for this, it could be the problem, I know that my grandchild is in Kindergarden he is on medicine and he does not sleep at night at all, however he doesnt go to sleep at school but he does on the bus, Now if the child is staying up late because the parents doesnt make them go to bed or eat a good breakfast can we really say that is the childs fault? dont punish the child for something an adult is responsible for.
responsibility

^^ Can't punish the parents though. Someone needs to take responsibility, if the parents aren't teaching the kids any sort of responsibility, I applaud the teachers for trying to step in and teach a little of it..
no no no

Regardless of what a child does or doesn't do... Standing them or shamming them is never the answer.
Maybe the child wasn't feeling well did anyone take his/her temperature?

If you're not comfortable with what your hearing, I hope that you go to the board of education & voice your concerns & not just keep posting in Topix?!?
I say it won't be long before you "out" the teacher on here.

No. And if you brought it to administrative attention I'm sure the teacher would get disciplined. With that being said, if your child did fall asleep in class then they most certainly need disciplined and maybe you could parent more.

I would say this child is a repeat offender and has been told many times.I was a teacher for over 30 years and the last 3 or 4 years alot of students ignore the teacher like they are not there.When they are sent to the office generally they come back and repeat the same offenses.It would scare the public if they knew what went on in the schools today.Schools are becoming dangerous and I am afraid we have let the youth of our country lead us down a path of destruction simply because adults are not teaching their children respect.I know what my teacher would have done to me and I know how my dad would have responded if I had repeatedly fell asleep in class-it would have stopped!

Sounds like a good way to keep your little angel awake. Instead of complaining about the teacher maybe you should have a talk with your kid about acceptable behavior in class.

It is not normal or accepted for a child or a grown person to stand for a day. Some of you do not have the intelligence to understand just how long a day is, and how much stress this will put on a child, and in my opinion it is not accepted as a parent for some of you to even be on this forum giving advice. Your comments are absurd!

No! I teach third grade. I would never do that to a student. There is obviously something wrong.

LOL, such an over reach, why are people such drama queens? If you were a parent, I raised 4 kids, common sense would kick you square in the behind, and you would know her child a 3rd grader stretched the truth.
Such a drama queen taking the word of a child over a teacher without even asking the teacher, the child didn't tell the complete truth, the child told his version of it, which when compared to what really happened will be hours a part.

Yes it's called common sense, to take the word of a child over a teacher without asking the teacher is shameful.
