A teachable moment?
|Bad apple for the teacher!|
The Board believes that a safe and civil environment in school is necessary for students to learn and achieve high academic standards. Since students learn by example, school administrators, faculty, staff, and volunteers are required to demonstrate appropriate behavior, treating others with civility and respect, and refusing to tolerate harassment, intimidation or bullying. Harassment, intimidation or bullying, like other disruptive or violent behaviors, is conduct that disrupts both a student's ability to learn and a school's ability to educate its students in a safe environment. Therefore, the school district will not tolerate acts of harassment, intimidation or bullying.*
If you are taunting my kid in public, asking him in front of his classmates if he "likes getting zeros", YES, Mom is going to call you out on it. 1) Grades are private - especially failing ones. 2) I consider this to be disrespectful and inappropriate.
And if, as Mom, I e-mail you saying the above in a professional tone, but calling you out on your behavior, don't whine back in an e-mail that I'm being mean!
You want to see mean??? Look in a mirror!
