    I can understand some teachers taking this approach with kids in high school., but these are 1st graders. She needs to lay off the Starbucks.

    MuchMoreThanMuscle saidBrings back memories from my Catholic grammar school days.

    To be honest, that was quite mild compared to what I witnessed and experienced as a child in school.

    I used to be slapped and hit by the nuns in grammar (elementary) school. When I was in a private boys prep school (high school) the Jesuits would punch us bloody.

    By my Sophomore year I'd had enough. My parents didn't want me to leave, so I simply flunked out. They put me in another private academy, and I simply did the same thing.

    Not that I thought much of public high school where I ended, and I had ruined my transcript that would qualify me to choose a good college, but I wasn't beaten anymore. And for the first time in my entire school life, from the time I was 5, I could sit in a classroom without having to wear a coat & tie, and not be in constant fear.

    I often wonder how I might have done in life if public school had always been the case. I might have learned some useful & profitable skills, and enjoyed the experience, rather than dreading it. Instead of memorizing the Catholic Catechism to recite daily, and learning some helpful foreign languages, rather than ancient Latin.

    And perhaps had my curiosity for science and mathematics been encouraged, instead of punished with a face slap, when I tried to explore outside the approved subject matter. I loved learning, still do, but I hated school.

    Seems Miss Dial was suspended for only a week and a half

    Some cops get less than that for murdering people. I don't really have a point, just fucking hate police culture.

    Thats fairly typical of teachers to try and humiliate pupils in front of their class mates, I think a lot of teachers get off on the power trip bullying kids because they are weak and can't get away with that with adults. Religious schools seem to be the worst with this kind of thing, I had a teacher when I was 5 and 6 who was absolutely twisted and would hit the kids if they stepped out of line, I was, my dad went nuts and made her cry, nowadays she would have been sacked for doing what she did to me, she is still alive and I have thought of confronting her about what she did, most of the parents were scared of her let alone the kids and none of the other teachers would have dared tackle her on the way she behaved, she wasn't even the head teacher, anyhow everything was brushed under the rug as was done in those days. Could have been worse, could have been subjected to real abuse which luckily didn't happen so should thank my lucky stars that I didn't go to a school with male priests, a lot of them are totally perverted and they still get away with it.
    They seem to forget that they are just kids, with feelings and lots of energy and zest for life, she may well have just ruined that kids life of learning because she won't have the confidence to ask questions if she doesn't understand and slide into the background and be forgotten about by the education system.
    She should be ashamed of behaving like that and should loose her position to teach.

    It's obviously a private school; the kids are wearing uniforms - who the fuck makes a first grader wear a necktie?

    It looks like something from the 1960s. If she pulled this shit in a public school, in this day and age, she'd be roasted alive. But private schools can still get away with murder because they're "exclusive". People pay big bucks and get on years-long waiting lists so their kids can be repressed, humiliated and mistreated like this.

    I'm a very nonviolent person but I have never been able to tolerate people who feel entitled to mistreat those smaller and weaker than themselves - and that goes double for grown adults bullying children. If I were in the same room with that bitch, I'd slap her silly.

    I don't find it disturbing by any stretch. I think this is fairly common in most countries.

    I have been slapped by hands, beaten with wooden chair legs, pinched, ears pulled, and thick hardcover books being slammed on the head. In addition to being made to stand with hands up and one leg up for nearly an hour in outside heat.

    I also went to a Catholic School like others on this forum so perhaps there is a truth to religious schools being more disciplinary in approach.
