Hi Im a single parent age 28 and have a 9 yr old daugther. My daughter came home one afternoon telling me the whole class got a hiding frm their teacher for failing a test. I was not happy with that knowing that corporal punishment has been banned, but seeing how my daugter has been bruised it was horrific. She has blue and purple marks all over the thighs and behind.I have spoken to the principal but it seems that they trying to change my mind not to lay a charge against
the educator. Pls Advise.
Thanx Wendy

ARE YOU KIDDING ME???????? NO ONE HAS THE RIGHT TO LAY A HAND OR EVEN A FINGER ON YOUR CHILD. TAKE PICTURES, FILE A REPORT, GET A REPORT FROM THE SCHOOL (AND DO NOT LET THEM TELL YOU THEY DO NOT HAVE ONE) CONTACT OTHER PARENTS AND GET THEM INVOLVED IF THEIR CHILDREN WERE ABUSED TOO. STRENGTH IN NUMBERS AND EVEN IF YOU WERE ALONE, YOU HAVE A SOLID CASE THAT NEEDS TO BE TAKEN SERIOUSLY NOT SWEPT UNDER THE RUG. I AM ANGRY FOR YOU! YOU SHOULD ALSO DO A LITTLE DIGGING ON THIS PARTICULAR TEACHER AND SEE IF THEY HAVE HAD ANY COMPLAINTS AGAINST THEM PRIOR TO THIS. DO NOT LET IT GO. IF YOU DO IT WILL ONLY HAPPEN TO SOMEONE ELSE.

Somebody hit a child so hard that she's all bruised up. Now, I got "paddlings" in school when I was younger and I would be sore for a little bit but I never was all bruised up. If the situation was reversed and the school discovered it having been done by the parent, cps would be called right away. So what if it's a teacher? I spank my kids if I need to but neither of them have ever come away from it with a bruise. The amount of force it takes to cause multiple bruises constitutes abuse, in my eyes. And he/she didn't just spank one kid, they beat a whole room full of kids. I would take photos and get them investigated.

Take pictures of the bruising and get a lawyer. Talk to some of the other parents and see what their feelings are and maybe a group of you can file against the teacher and the school for that matter. That is atrocious that they are trying to change your mind instead of punishing the teacher. It sounds like the acknowledge what happened, but think its not so bad.

Steps I'd be taking call the police, take pictures, find a lawyer and taking my child out of that school ( corporal punishment has been banned here too.) I'd also be going infront of the school board demanding to know why this teacher is still has a job I doubt this is the first time he/she has did this. Before you ask yes I have spanked my daughter before (no marks) but that time she had ran across the parking lot and I know my neighbours don't aways watch for kids (she only did it once)

Are you in the US?? I am appalled by this, and could only say god help the teacher for the wrath I would have if anyone ever put their hands on my child like that! Good luck, and I hope you get results for your child!

I am curious as to what happened to the teacher? and how you and your daughter are?

[deleted account]

I can't believe this is even questioned. These days even verbal abuse is a huge "no no" in the school system. I'm sure by now you have contacted the right people and that teacher is no longer teaching. How teachers get away with the things they do is just appalling to me. You don't teach a child to not hit by hitting, you don't teach a child to respect by yelling at them, and surely don't teach children to learn by abusing them. The school system is failing. There are only a handful of wonderful teachers out there in each city across the US. Just my opinion of course.

Take photos of the bruising and telephone the police, this is child abuse and you should be protecting your child. This teacher should be stopped from teaching as there is obviously a temper problem there and no teacher has permission to abuse a child, they banned corporal punishment years ago and your child should be told this so they can tell you if it ever happens again. PLEASE PHONE THE POLICE AND PROTECT CHILDREN FROM THIS HORRID CHILD ABUSER

OMG absolutely take pictures and call the police, for one you have to give permission to the school for them to use corporal punishment and the failure on a test is not grounds for a swatting. You need to call the police and have this woman arrested for assault and call the other parents of the students in the class and see if they would like to file charges as well. This is not something that you should have to deal with.

Hi Wendy. I don t think you need to ask the Principal for whatever legal action you will take against your daughters teacher. From where I came from, if things like that happen, its either, I myself beat the teacher or she will be in jail. Don t even care what will happen to the teacher. what is important is that you did justice for your daughter. Just imagine the trauma it will bring to your daughter. You knew already what happened, who hurt her. Regardless of the reason why she was beaten, the teacher has no right or anyone for that reason has the right to beat a child. My goodness thats what parents are for, protect their children. If you will not do it, who will do it for them.
