I’m lost at what I’m to say. I cannot believe the story that I just read. Ok, so I can believe it because some people are just stupid and don’t know what they are saying, but still, come on people. On The Raw Story, a teacher bullies a student.
Teacher’s are role models, or they should be, to students out there. When a teacher tells a student, I bet you’re grieving after recent events of Osama Bin Laden, it is uncalled for. What was the teacher even thinking? Not only did they say that, the teacher “just kind of smirked and giggled and walked away” after the Muslim student ended up crying over the comments.
How did this teacher get a teaching job? This is unbelievable, unacceptable. Teachers are to help students through rough times. Even IF this student was related to Bin Laden in some way, the teacher had no right to comment in this way.
The teacher was suspended, and unnamed. I think that the teacher should be named so that other schools know not to hire them. We do not need people like this in the classroom. This is bullying.
“It’s just one individual,” he said. “A lot of people suffer because of the actions of one individual. This little girl suffered. The teacher is going to suffer. I think every society has some people who are a little off. He may be one of those.”
I agree with this statement, but this makes a huge impact in that school. Other students heard it, and may agree, and may continue giving the student a tough time. Teachers cannot give opinions in this manner. What are your thoughts on this story?
