This story comes from a little town north of Indianapolis, and I would like to know how you would deal with this.
Prosecutor pondering charges against teacher
April 25, 2003
Lebanon – Authorities were waiting Thursday for county Prosecutor Todd Meyer to decide whether to authorize criminal charges against a teacher who authorities say tied a student to a chair to discipline him.
Lebanon police have turned in evidence against Lebanon Middle School science teacher Ann Linton, Lt. Brent Wheat said Thursday.
A sixth-grade student told officers that around noon Monday Linton used twine to tie him to a chair for rolling a pencil across his desk, Wheat said.
On Tuesday, Lebanon Schools officials put Linton on paid suspension through today. Linton declined to comment Thursday.
School officials said she had became frustrated after the 13-year-old boy repeatedly disrupted class.
Would you sue the teacher?
Would you beat the daylights out of your child?
Would you beat the daylights out of yourself because your child was out of control in the class room?
If I was the teacher (in hind site) I would get my cell phone out of my purse and call the kids parents at their job and let them be disrupted!
Or I would get the principal down to my office and let him be disrupted!
