Arnold that is so funny. It must have been the MO for whipping back in the day. Not only did my mother holler while whipping, but I used to think, God have mercy, she's whipped me, hollered while doing it and for at least a week she gave a daily reminder of the whipping you received and why. The daily reminder was as bad as the whipping and hollering.
Mothers were certainly on the same waive length then. It had an effect. If I was going to do something that may have a consequence that my mom would find out about, I would think of her. Kind of like a god on earth that you would be responsable to.'Putting the fear of God in you', is something we all understand from that time period. Like yours, mine was good with reminders.

So a juvenile in NC is arrested , tried and convicted for armed robery and other crimes.. Likely as not, the judge will sentence him to return to school and "be good" as part of his probation. Yes, there are problems in our schools. Only very rarely does the problem lie with a teacher. That republikan noise machine is making you blind to real problems.
On the contrary, problems do lie within some teachers, not all. My niece for example has the same English teacher that I had when I was in HS...and she was in her 40's when I had her. She must be in her late 60's by now! This lady hasn't taught her much, she constantly forgets to take up class work/homework and very rarely records a grade. My niece even claims the teacher had to ask each student what they made on a test then had to take their word for it because she had already returned the test and most had already discarded them! When it came to EOC time, she gave them the answers! Was this because she failed to teach or was she just trying to protect herself come evaluation time!? When the students/parents complained to administration, their complaints fell on deaf ears.
Now I understand that one bad apple doesn't spoil the bushel but if this isn't an example of teachers first, students second then I'm not sure what is! Call it as you wish but I consider this a "real problem."

Being in the education system, that is the most suspicious post I have ever seen on here. In regard to the EOC, there are a lot of precautions made in test authenticiy, with heavy penalties administered to the Local Education Administration (School Board) for behavior by the teacher as you have described. Very heavy fines are administered, and it is this type of negative publicity that the local administration wants to avoid. The statement that parents complained and the administration "did nothing" is total bull shit. Local administration is subject to the rules of The NC Department of Public Instruction and their ass is on the line...big time. I think you are bull shitting to expand your agenda about public schools. This story is just too far fetched with the way it went down....It is hard to believe that the parents did not take this case directly to a school board member, or directly to NCDPI. This did not happen the way you are presenting it. Total BS. From this story, all of you postings in the future will be suspect by me.

Also, with a State Test EOC, they (the teacher and the Class Proctor) sign a statement at the end of administration of the test stating that they did in no way help any student with the testing, by giving direct of indirect answers. There are other things listed that cannot be done.(Students taking bathroom breaks together,for instance) If a test misadministration occurs, teachers are to contact the Principal IMMEDIATELY so he can determine if the testing should be continued, or scheduled for another time. Teachers have to attend training sessions each semester where the testing administration is understood, and made aware that we are liable for any part of the test that is misadminstered and our jobs are on the line for any violation. That is required by NCDPI. I don't think your neice gave you the true facts.
