i think that teacher AND the principal of school would be getting a not so nice visit from me. Call the principal's office and set up a meeting with the principal (or vice principal) and the teacher in question. Also, (and I'm not saying it's O.K. for a teacher to EVER push a student) but, did your child do s.th unacceptable? I would suggest that you NOT go into a meeting with the attitude that your child did NOTHING, but rather that REGARDLESS of what your child may have done (and I don't know that he/she did anything) the teacher was OUT OF LINE. Try to investigate BOTH sides of what happened and come to a resolution, but by no means am I saying that the pushing should be condoned. Good luck.

I'm from Austin TX and the principical pushed my son and I called the cops and they told me that no arrest could be made because their was no physical injuries on my son. All he can get is a ticket and a pat on the back for what he did. So I asked APD if I pushed him and left him no injuries I would just get a ticket too. And of course he said no. That in dat case I would get arrested and charged with a class c misdemeanor. I think the system in Austin tx is bullshit!!! And to top it all off my son is not allowed to step foot in the school premises until the investigation is over. Which means the principal is getting awarded with a paycheck and job while my son is missing out on his education having to stay at home. I've had to hire a lawyer and soon it should b out in the press. Ima do whatever it takes to get mr sal vega from east Austin college prep to pay for what he has done to my child!

I think Brandi Struble said it best. I get the feeling that at 12 yrs old a kid is not likely to be very truthful (trust me...personal experience lol). So don't go into a teacher/principal/parent meeting with guns blazing because you don't know the whole story. And just like Brandi said REGARDLESS of whether your child was doing something inappropriate to instigate such an action or not doesn't excuse the fact that (if the teacher really DID push your child,) that that behavior is inexcusable for a teacher. Just go into the meeting with an open-mind and a level head. You are there to protect your child's interests, but also remember that the teacher needs respect and to maintain their dignity. Their job is harder than many of us can imagine or understand...sometimes when the School board turns the other cheek they need parents to stand up for them also. Something to keep in mind =]

I am a kindergarten teacher and teach five year olds to read on a daily basis. Not only is what she said inappropriate, but her response to you when you voiced your concern did not seem to indicate any remorse. I would request a parent conference with her, and if you are not satisfied, then absolutely raise your concerns to the principal. You are your child's first advocate!!

If my Son came home from school telling me his teacher pushed him, or even put a finger on him..... I'd have he or she arrested! I would take it to the Board of Education & make sure this teacher lost their license to teach in any school! I wouldn't stop until this matter was completely Resolved! We send our children to school to learn & in a safe environment. Bullying isn't accepted by students, and should Never be accepted by any Teacher or Staff member!

this just happend to my son about a week ago i went to the school and met with the teacher that did it and the principle and they blamed it all on my son he is 9 years old and was very up set and confused about it.since the principle didnt do anything about it i am for sure taking it further and getting legal advice.this is not the only thing my son deals with a lot of mental abuse also because he has adhd and they dont want to deal with it.they just want to send him to another school in a different town and put him in a special ed class. im not standing for this i will do anything and everything i have to do to make sure my son is not abused in any way at the place he is supposed to be safe and getting an education.
Where do you live? Where is this child's school?
I would personally go there if possible and speak on your behalf to someone! This is absolutely unacceptable behavior for any adult, and especially a school teacher, to make towards a child...a very serious matter.
If anything, I would suggest focusing on this particular person (the teacher) and in some way make them PUBLICLY accountable and known for their actions.
Good luck with this and much love from me to you and your child.

People think all teachers are good they are not...some just like the job because of the hours and holidays and summer vacation...I worked with teachers as an aide and had several teachers who talked so badly about students even making racial comments...I even reported to principal who was black and she didn't do anything..It was sad to see a black women ignore it and have a racist teacher in her school...Oh well that is the Vegas school system which sucks so bad...

I would go to the school to have a conference with the teacher and find out why the teacher pushed my child, but the first thing I would do is ask my child why the teacher pushed him, or her. I know accident's happen at times it may have been by mistake but still find out the reason some teachers can be really mean to certain children.

hi first i think it is a mater of trust , are you sure that he is telling the truth or he just hate this teacher ? then when you are sure never insult the teacher infront of your child because this teacher represents many things like order and so , so you can tell him that you will speak to the teacher and find out what makes him do that and do that really

oh my gosh this brings back memories for me. i had a teacher so bad that she had to go to anger management classes or she was going to lose her job. that was in the 4th grade. I would have a talk with other moms and see if anything has happened to their children. and even talk to the principal. good luck
