What do you think about this?
You know the teachers who are bullies, but they are never fired?
Our school is awesome. Our principal is supportive. But there is this one teacher that makes life miserable for a lot of kids. When my oldest got this teacher, I had to take him out and homeschool him. I have since met 2 other families who have done the same. This teacher likes some kids, but picks out a few of the more vulnerable ones and basically acts like a ringleader and encourages the whole class to make them feel like crap.
The principal knows what is going on. She is wonderful. I know she would never treat kids this way. So why does the teacher stay? Good test scores? Unions? Why?
