I don't watch the news very often, but I happened to see a report about this incident last night.
I am shocked and outraged that this kind of thing could happen. What is equally disturbing is that not one of the students in the class did anything to stop this. One kid took a video, but no one ran to go find another adult, no one stepped in to help. Some of the kids are even laughing in the background.
What in the world is going on in our society? What was going on with this teacher that she was so angry and violent? What tripped in her brain to allow her to treat a child like this? Are the pressures to achieve and conform so great that it leads to this? This is giving me lots of food for thought. I'm interested to hear your thoughts on this.
