What a dingbat!!! She should know better than to blog about a child. She has no business being in a classroom, except, maybe to mop the floor!!

Collins was an excellent teacher, truly one of the best and the brightest. Citizen Bob, we know you're a freak from Florida who has been all over the boards disparaging a woman you do not know because you hate teachers. Citizen Bob needs to be ignored (do not feed the trolls).

Also, Collins did not blog about a child; she blogged about teaching a writing lesson and how she as a teacher realized she could be clearer and more effective in her teaching by modeling the assignment.

Get your facts straight, Bob (Bob Lowe from Clearwater, if anyone wants to call him at home). Do some research.

The parents in this case are extremists with reputations for cruelty. They attacked this teacher. The school administrators were spineless, inept cowards who caved to their pressure and threats.

Sounds like this teacher was a victim of yuppie parents with a sense of entitlement that would make a welfare Queen blush. The school should not have caved to these so called 'parents' who sound like typical right wing extremists. The teacher should sue!

This is the problem right here. People want to complain about teachers, but when they try to do their jobs parents get mad. It's never their kids who are the f*up's. By stripping teachers of their freedom to teach, our kids aren't getting taught. It's simple. The parents are the problem. This is the case right here. The kid is a dumb a$$. The lady wasn't lying. Parents not wanting to confront the truth RUIN schools.
