  •  I taught in the school district (6+ / 0-)

    next to Arlington, and we were not allowed to touch a student or use corporal punishment...ever, not even if we were being hit, which we were occasionally.
    I am surprised that this teacher was allowed to keep teaching children. No matter what colour a student is, pouring pencil shavings in someone's mouth is inexcusable.

    •  I am a Texas teacher too (5+ / 0-)

      and I wish people would stop stereotyping based on what they think Texas or Texas teachers are like.  'Keep Austin Weird' does not translate that everywhere else in Texas  is not professional, compassionate, progressive, or enlightened.

      That teacher is flat out in the wrong - but only represents one teacher who just happens to be in Arlington, a big city of nearly 400,000 people.

      Thank you, northsylvania, for telling it like it is.  My school district is on the other side of the Metroplex, and that teacher's actions would not be tolerated here either.

        If so, I'm less shocked by the return to duty of this abusive individual.
        He destroyed Lubbock ISD on his way to a multi-million-dollar contract in the Metroplex.
