I have also noticed the teacher in questions name has suddenly disappeared from a previous post...
You would think the rookies at the pd would immediately charge the father at least for being ugly. If he and his daughter have that disease everyone is talking about I'm going to make sure my kids and parents kids don't go anywhere near them. Gross. Everyone wonders why there is always skepticism about how police investigate. Here's a prime example where our tax dollars are going. This should be a strong reminder of who we have calling shots around here. I would have been more content if CS would of handled it by himself then we would have had an outcome that all of us wanted 5 days ago.
What is the matter with you? I think we should all stay away from people like you. We might catch crazy, mean and disgusting disease.

So the child has been transfered to another school, what does that mean, where is the statement. I heard the teacher is potentially returning tomorrow. Couldn't they have just switched the girls class?

I'm sure there's more to the situation than any of us actually know or will find out. I quite frankly don't care anymore just because it's quite obvious that something happened. The kid is in another school and the teacher is still gone. I have read through this feed and quite frankly think there are quite a few parents that need to read what they have posted and ask themselves what they would have done if they were in the same situation as that family is. No one can assume what happened or what the circumstances were until we know all the facts. It's a shame that there is a double standard when it comes to male/female teachers. Had it been a MAN accused of hurting a student most of you would have, no wait ALL of you would have condemned him from the start. Instead I see people shifting blame on a child because you may have had a bad experience with her. Doesn't matter to me why the family chose to go the route they did. Public opinion is just as it is spelled, OPINION... Opinions are like A** holes, everyone has one. Seen many leaders, teachers and idiots come and go over the years in this town. Nothing surprises me any more.

I disagree. We've had male teachers as well as female, I don't discriminate. Secondly, I don't believe my kids are angels and there is a big difference between grabbing an arm and physical abuse. I would talk to the teacher, get to the bottom of it, and then move forward with a resolution but sincerely doubt that I'd ever call the media first and parade my kid on TV.

Lastly, my kids don't misbehave at school, because they have had respect for teacher and administrators emphasized from day one. And both my teenagers went thru AES, one with Dr Harding and one with Dr Hamilton, both thru this teachers classroom.

Not intending to bash the parents involved, but don't cast your broad opinion over everyone.

Yay? It says "no criminal intent", not that she didn't do it. Something still sounds absolutely wrong to me.

Still think we should ask the parent his side of the story. I'm sure there's got to be a light he could shed on this. Someone here care to contact him?

Yes, YAY. No criminal intent. Most likely a kid repeatedly misbehaving, and a teacher at the end of her rope. Good Lord, quit with the helicopter parenting already. If my kid was being a brat, I would have her apologizing to the teacher. There is a difference between abuse and grabbing the arm of a misbehaving child. The police department, states attorney and school district all recognize it. Geez, if my parents called the news media every time the nuns beat the crap out of me with a ruler... but you know what? I'm a better person for it because I grew up with discipline and respect! I knew that if/when I acted like a punk, I'd pay for it. And I'd thank every one of them today if I had the opportunity.

You wonder why there are so many spoiled, entitled young adults in this world, this is exactly why. Parent your kids, people.

Apparently another parent that is stuck on the old method of teaching and discipline. It does NOT matter. A teacher should not touch a student in a manner to leave a bruise. Its absolutely ridiculous for you to say our assume the child was misbehaving. I have read that NO where. I have also read NO where about the school commenting about this anywhere or the police or the states attorney. Keep your personal opinion out of this and try to stick to facts. Read this and I'll put it in captions for you " STOP TRYING TO BLAME THE FAMILY OR THE CHILD." Stupid ass people always saying things that aren't even mentioned anywhere. What a c!!!

Damn straight. And I have happy, social, well adjusted, honor roll students as kids. I'm proud of them and they know it. Adults like them because they know how to be respectful.

Perhaps you might have paid better attention or been better behaved in school yourself. Had you done so, you might have the ability to have a rational debate rather than resulting to name calling, inaccurate assumptions and jumping to your own conclusions, regardless of what others might have actually said. Consider that I likely do know more than you, because I invested the time and effort to research this, rather than rant and rave on an internet message board about what I have and have not read "no where".

Pot, meet kettle:

"Most likely a kid repeatedly misbehaving, and a teacher at the end of her rope. "

The only person making assumptions and name calling appears to be you.

I'll be happy to debate with you.
And you know me well enough to know i WON'T call you names, swear at you, hurl insults , etc.
I'll stick to the subject matter.
But if you are going to mention your own personal experiences then those comments are fair game to debate as well.
I will do my best to discuss your experience in a respectful manner.

If nuns have used a ruler on you they were abusing their authority. That is why they no longer are allowed to do that to children. You mention the parents role in raising children. I dare say your parents should never have allowed you to be abused by nuns.
By allowing that to happen to you it has caused you to continue that cycle of abuse and now you believe its still ok to do that when it is not.

Back to this teacher.
She choose to grab that child with so much force it caused bruising.
That was over the top.
She could have called out to them to stop. Got in between the kids and instructed them on what they needed to do.
Touching the kids for any reason at any time is just wrong. Period. That exceeds her authority.
If it had been a male teacher he would have been gone in a heartbeat. That is another point that should be addressed too.

Quite honestly, this is a debate I would not mind continuing, because I do disagree wholeheartedly with you. However, this post isn't the place for it, no matter how many disclaimers are added, people are still going to interpret it as criticism of the parent/kid/teacher (depending on their opinion) involved. TIme for this to fall off. I really didn't even want to reply and bring it back to the top but didn't want you to think I was ducking your comments.

The other person, yes, you are correct, I made an assumption. I'm pretty comfortable with it, based upon the information I learned, and on which the assumption was made. I'm not playing your game tho. No problem being a pot or a kettle for that, but as to name calling, you stand on your own. Say what you will next, I'm done.

Your point is well taken my friend.
This is indeed a topic that is much more then about one parent - one teacher.
It really does need to be looked at as a whole situation that has snowballed into what it is now.
We will both walk away from this thread.
I always look forward to real debates and hope we find the perfect thread for it.
