“Stupid stunt. The district should learn a lesson. Every teacher in the district should heed the warning.
Seems like a ticky-tack reason for someone to lose their career, though. She took the kids lunch ... she didnt molest the kid.”
True, she didn’t sexually molest the student, but she did deliberately interfere with the parental authority to determine the child’s lunch.
As for firing education industry personnel, I’m all for it. Only ‘professional educators’ are allowed to not produce (students are all too often functional illiterates) and retain their jobs.
Since most are commies, fire ‘em all. Mark will know his own.
Unless the teacher is also this child's doctor she can't possibly know why this or that food was included in the child's lunch - and the child herself is no help here. What if the child is lactose-intolerant, for example? What if she has no allergies but the doctor recommended to stay away from this or that food for a reason that a teacher who is lacking a solid knowledge of biochemistry can't even comprehend? What if you feed a child some heavy, solid food instead of watery buckwheat porridge packed for her - without knowing or caring to know that the child is recovering from a recent gastrointestinal surgery?
Responsibility for child's diet first and foremost belongs to parents. School *may* join that circle of responsibility, if necessary, but only after learning specific needs of each child - especially when children are so young that they can actually obey the teacher and eat what is not good for them. I had some fruits on my own "forbidden" list until I got older and the body learned to deal with them.
Fire ‘em all, let Marx sort ‘em out? May I steal that?
Yes, she deliberately interfered with a lunch decision. Wrong, but hardly a high crime.
I’d say fire the ones that deserve it. If she can’t teach, can her. This lunch thing isn’t a good enough reason, though.
Then again ... my wife is a career teacher, so maybe that colors my opinion on the “fire them all” thing. Heh. But, she earns her keep, and would welcome performance-based pay. Our daughter attends the same school my wife works at. It is a high-performing public school ... 99% standardized-test passage. My daughter was reading at a 2nd grade level before her first semester of Kindergarten was over. We wouldn’t have it any other way.
