    NY teacher charged with making 4th-graders fight
    NEW YORK – A New York City teacher is accused of turning his fourth-grade classroom into a fighting ring.

    Queens prosecutors say Joseph Gullotta told two of his students, ages 9 and 10, to settle an argument with a classroom fight.

    One ended up with a cut lip, and the other with a bruised head.

    Authorities say that when Gullotta finally sent the boys to the school nurse, he told them to lie and say they got hurt by bumping into each other.

    He and a teacher's aide who allegedly witnessed the incident are charged with acting in a manner injurious to a child.

    Gullotta has been reassigned.

    Reassigned he should be FIRED! Can you Imagine being a parent and getting this call?

    Considering what Michael Vick got for the same with dogs, the teach and his aide should get far worse than that for doing this with kids.

    Seriously now. This poor teacher has to spend all day with these kids. He deserves at least some entertainment.

    Stupid people are stupid.

    Schools are messed up for a LONG list of reasons, not just stupid teachers.

    When I was in school, every so often there would be "personality conflict" between a couple of guys. The PE coach had a way of getting that resolved called boxing practice. It seemed to be effective. For whatever it's worth....

    Boxing is fine as a sport, but it's not right to use it as a way of resolving conflict in children. To do so simply reinforces the idea, in children, that every conflict can be resolved through violence.

    Later on, as adults, people can choose more effectively if a situation needs violence instead of reason to be resolved. But if they're taught as kids to use violence first, then they will have extreme difficulty living in polite society as adults.

    That being said, I'm all for teaching kids any of the various martial arts, as learning such arts and techniques can afford a level of self-confidence in a person that will enable them to walk the Earth without fear. When they become adults, such self-confidence can enable them to more easily use reason and logic in a conflict, knowing that should things go south, they can always defend themselves if need be.
