So the girl's mom was unaware that her child was not completing assigned homework? Or the mom thought the child should not be expected to complete homework assignments? Not sure what the issue is. Next will there be an article that a child is upset that the teacher requires them to raise their hand before speaking in class?

How would this teacher like it if her students posted something embarrassing about her on Facebook? Educators are supposed to set the example.

Maybe if poking fun at someone and embarrassing them in front of their peers works for those who make excuses for their failures, we should embarrass the educators of this country. They have the most excuses for why our educational system lags behind other developed countries.

And we should start with Ms. Gigi Plowman.

I guess you don't recall the story about the teacher getting the students expelled because they made fun of her on Facebook. Gigi Plowman and that principal should have their pictures posted on facebook and craigslist so they can see how it feels to be embarrassed.

OMG!!!! I refuse to believe that some people are so racist that they will automatically jump to the defense of a Anglo teacher against an Hispanic student and immediately take sides without knowing any of the facts. 1. This is TOTAL BS. The child does her homework.(Do yours before you comment and expose your stupidity) 2. This is a CHARTER school that believes it does not have to play by the rules (OBVIOUSLY) 3. All of the experts PLAINLY state that this inappropriate behavior towards a small child. 4. THIS IS AN 8 YEAR OLD, NOT A HIGH SCHOOL STUDENT. Now I will wait for all of the “I’M NOT RACIST” Lies to pour in. You people are as transparent as a pane of glass!!! I bet you claim to be Christian as well and you wonder why Arizona is the laughing stock of the Nation.

What that kid needs is some serious nude swimming, followed by a good bare-bottom spanking!

Another sicko nude-child abuse fantasy from Pedo Bob, posing again as me (but note the location of origin--"Dorval, Canada"--which is none other than Pedo Bob's..again too stupid to be more creative in avenging me... and much too stupid to think of modifying the location of origin of his "revenge" postings of sicko nude-child-obsessed fantasies)... using his need for revenge at me, because I'm onto him, as another opportunity to post the smut to which he then masturbates. This is a very sick, very dangerous child predator who should not be accorded any more respect than any other child rapist merits from civilized people.

Check out many more vintage Pedo Bob postings (ca 2008) on the thread that he created after my own screen name, "MaltaMon Outed!"
