And she’s from Texas. Houston, in fact. Great. Have just seen this woman / teacher on GMA.
First, what the hell is she doing on GMA!?!
So the TAKS test induces violence in teachers? There’s a solution for that. I don’t know about other states, but it seems sometimes (in Texas) that they teach only the test...
I don’t care what her excuse is, this behavior in this day and age is indefensible. She has clearly snapped in the incident.
I don’t give a flying fuck if this is a charter school. She knew what she was getting into when she signed on. If she didn’t, she shouldn’t have signed on.
Having been around kids most of my adult life, I know they can push all your buttons. On purpose. All at once. But still.
She is right about one thing though. The kid’s mother (or other parental unit) should be more involved. You cannot just drop a kid off and go about your business. And then pick them up after school. This is a recipe for disaster.
The teacher is to blame here, but she sure as hell isn’t the only one. There’s certainly enough blame to go around.
For fuck’s sake!
