    Teacher Cuts Off 1st Grader's Braid In Front Of Class

    "Lamya Cannon says the teacher called her up to the front of the class at Congress Elementary, took a classroom scissors and snipped the beaded braid that frames her face.
    "I went to my desk and cried. They was laughing. She threw it away." Cannon said."

    I would be furious, if I were that child's mom!

    What in the world? My gosh! Sounds like she is closer in mentality to the students.

    When the District Attorney's Office said there were not grounds for criminal charges, police issued the teacher a $175 dollar ticket for disorderly conduct. http://www.wkowtv.com/Global/story.asp?S=11677405
    Oh, there would have certainly been some disorderly conduct if this would have been my child! I have little to no patience when it comes to complete idiots!

    Sometimes the first step towards forgiveness is understanding that the other person is a complete idiot.

    Sounds like an ASSAULT WITH A DEADLY WEAPON to me! I would demand that she be charged and fired! Wonder how much time I would get for holding the witch down and shaving her head?

    Not grounds for criminal charges?

    I'd call it assault (and I consider scissors a deadly weapon)!

    Unbelievable.

    This is surely assault and that teacher should lose her licence.
    I would raise merry hell if that happened to my girls

    I agree. MAY face disciplinary action?
    What's next? I can't imagine she wasn't fired then and there. Heck, if any one did that to a coworker they'd be escorted out the door.

    And to do this to a child?

    This woman has no business being around children.

    Ok, and who said they were going to the next school board meeting to hold her down and shave her head? I'll hold her down for ya! And it would be one rather eratic hair cut. Pass the razor!

    If anyone did that to my child, sorry but their would be a law suit. I'm not generally not pro law suits, but think of how this teachers frustration will impact this childs trust of teachers, interest in learning, interaction with her peers....... I hope this mother is doing what she can to get this child into a different school.

    hate mail sent

    as an internet junkie, over the years i've sent hundreds of 'comment' letters to various police chiefs, terrorists and school principals etc.

    here's an email address i dug up, in case you want to make a comment to the school district.

    pdrs@milwaukee.k12.wi.us

    (thats the parent teacher dispute section, giving out of office reply, probably from the spam storm, but send email anyway !!)




    cheers
