A teacher slapped.......

(359 Posts)
NigellasDealer Fri 31-Jan-14 00:05:12 15 yr old daughter's 'ass' to make her sit down in a maths lesson!?
female teacher, sharpish slap! shock
What would you think or do?
(cue horde of teacher mnetters saying 'why wasn't she sitting down'?)
I posted this in chat but it had a crap title and disappeared.

If it's a one off then nothing. Except talk to daughter to check out her attitude?

NinjaBunny Fri 31-Jan-14 00:12:04

I'd think that teacher was about to lose her job!!


Doesn't matter what your daughter's attitude is like. Teachers can't go around hitting students.

I'd be demanding to know why a teacher thought it appropriate to put her hand anywhere near my daughter's backside.

Salmotrutta Fri 31-Jan-14 00:18:41

Oh that's not good at all! shock

I'd be investigating that if it was my DD!

I don't even give so much as an encouraging pat on the shoulder with my pupils!

Why was your daughter not sitting down?

At 15 has she not learnt respect for teachers and her fellow students learning?

But I guess the teacher will be sucked and the children dill have learnt a valuable lesson.

I am normally the first to defend teachers but that's indefensible. Bums are a no-no place!

Dromedary Fri 31-Jan-14 00:24:20

Isn't it possible to have a bit of understanding and patience for someone who has to work with perhaps trying teenagers all day every day? Or does she have to be reported and so get into huge trouble even if this is the first ever incident?

Personally I'd enquire why the hell she wasn't sitting down. If she'd been sitting on it, it wouldn't have been a target! But hey, go in all guns blazing, get the teacher disciplined/sacked and tacitly condone her misbehaving, why the hell not!

curlew Fri 31-Jan-14 00:26:43

I'm not sure what I would do. Depends on many things. Was your dd upset?

NigellasDealer Fri 31-Jan-14 00:27:31

peeved, embarrassed perhaps....

trying to imagine how this thread would go if you were talking about a male teacher.

Salmotrutta Fri 31-Jan-14 00:29:02

Whether the OP's daughter should have been sitting down is not the issue.

A teacher should never slap a pupil and certainly not on the behind!

Would those asking "why wasn't she sitting down" say the same if a male teacher had done this? hmm

If I did anything like that I'd fully expect disciplinary action.

Salmotrutta Fri 31-Jan-14 00:29:40

X-post with Vampyre!

Quinteszilla Fri 31-Jan-14 00:30:14

Or a male pupil. But ghats beside thepoint because it is irrelevant.

NigellasDealer Fri 31-Jan-14 00:30:30

I know Vampyre we discussed that here!

magnumicelolly Fri 31-Jan-14 00:30:43

Peeved and embarrassed... maybe she won't do it again then! Or maybe she will, if the teacher ends up sacked!

Quinteszilla Fri 31-Jan-14 00:31:55

I bet the whole class will if the teacher end up sacked

sometimes it makes sense to look at which behaviour was more inappropriate... child misbehaving in maths vs teacher slapping child... hmm

curlew Fri 31-Jan-14 00:34:22

And what would have happened if it was a male teacher is an irrelevant question- it wasn't,

Quinteszilla Fri 31-Jan-14 00:34:44

Whose behaviour impacted the other children most? One child mucking about or the teachers?

NinjaBunny Fri 31-Jan-14 00:34:54

The teacher needs to be diciplined.

She can't just lash out because her patience has run out. If it's not brought up then she'll carry on.

The teacher sounds out of control.

If your daughter was pissing her off then send her out of the classroom not assault her.

Schools need tighter laws. This sort of thing needs to not be allowed.


Is touching a pupils arse sexual assasult?

Don't flame me, I'm just asking.

Quinteszilla Fri 31-Jan-14 00:35:33

Or maybe the child needs expelling...

MothratheMighty Fri 31-Jan-14 00:35:37

Not acceptable at any level and in any circumstances.
<cross teacher Mnetter>

not really. had op not mentioned that the teacher was female, i'd be willing to bet someone would have asked.
