    *sigh*

    This is what happens in society when adults agree with the system of," hey, let`s make fun of the less popular kids because they`re probably gonna grow up to be serial killers or, possibly, geniuses."

    There are so many good teachers out there, but then there are bad teachers. It`s usually considered unprofessional to mock someone you`re trying to teach.

    Teachers are supposed to be role models.

    Teachers trying to engage with students instead of being the traditional authoritative model? Oh god no!
    That video shows nothing, as it doesn`t show the student in question. If they find it funny, why not tease them?
    And nowhere does it say it was a "less popular kid" being made fun of, does it?

    If this was all in good fun, I couldn`t care less about it. Teachers are allowed to be slightly more informal, if anything, it helps people WANT to learn. Teasing is just part of it. It happens in our school all the time - generally from the more popular teachers. Seriously, just because you were told it was disturbing before you watched it doesn`t mean you have to see it as disturbing.

    "There are so many good teachers out there, but then there are bad teachers. It`s usually considered unprofessional to mock someone you`re trying to teach.

    Teachers are supposed to be role models."

    Tell that to teachers who make fun of the less popular kids in my school, so the more popular kids will like them. It`s true. And I`m one of my LA teacher`s targets. It`s honestly annoying as hell when you get made fun of publicly in class for doing the same thing as somebody else, who just gets told something less insulting.

    Yes, but your statement applies both ways. He could very well have been doing that to make kids learn. He could also have been doing it because he as issues and finds security in making fun of kids who are less "socially involved".

    The video was really hard to understand, but if the news` interpretation is correct then I support the school`s taking action against the teacher.

    "Teasing" is okay if it`s in good fun (and if the student KNOWS that it`s in good fun), but all too often that`s not the case. Teachers must be extremely careful about mocking because their role as an authority figure can make it difficult - if not impossible - for a student to stand up for himself in a difficult situation.

    The hell, dragosal. Canada wasn`t founded on the basis that it`s ok to mock people if they are different! That`s why you have a statute that allows gay marriage(not an insult, just stating fact).

    I also wish to add, it is possible that the press could have twisted it up a little. But this is the statement i meant goes both ways. They could very well have understated what happened.

    Christ, what is the world coming to when a teacher can be forced to resign for THAT. People these days need to get a fuc*ing backbone. World is full of spineless sods that latch on to anything that isn`t `normal` and just keep on banging on about it. Teachers are threatened and abused everyday, and the kids usually get away with it because everyone is scared to abuse their `human rights` etc. This guy may well be some inspirational charecter, teaching out of the box , so to speak, interacting with his pupils, amusing them, entertaining them and engaging with them. Who`s to say the kid he was talking to wasn`t laughing as well. Hate this sort of old boll*cks. Weak, interfering, do-gooders, getting involved in other peoples business that they know nothing about. Poor bloke. Bast*rd do-gooders. If people like this are forced out, all you will be left with is a load of sterile, plain, conformist, uninspiring grey nobodys...and thats just the sort of people the kids will grow into. Tragic.

I had one professor ask me if he can "make change" when one of my friends were being dumb and put a dollar in my shirt. I also had one professor who ALWAYS took pictures of me. Now THATS creepy

    I don`t agree with it but he should still be allowed to do it.

    No they shouldent becuase think...
    The student which has been made fun of
    he will probobly be laughed at and made fun of for the rest of the day making it hard for him to learn, concentrace etc thus making him unable to achieve more acidemicly its nastey a teacher should do this to an innocent pupil, if the pupil was misbehaving then they should be punished not humiliated... this is terrible... :S

    On the other hand, if this kid WASN`T laughing at what the teacher was saying, he`ll probably thin kthat unless he confroms to current things and does whatever others do, he`ll be nothing. I can name a couple of peopel in my school who have done this. I feel bad for them.

    alot of the most popular teachers in my school at times make fun of students, but after a while you realise it is only the students that can take it that are mocked. A teacher wouldnt make fun of a student if they couldnt take it, or would become embarrased

    It`s hard to figure out what was going on or what the hell he was saying. We always joked around with our teachers, they heckled us we heckled them and it was all in good fun and gave a good vibe to the classroom. Maybe thats what was going on here.
    But if he was actually picking on a particular student that`s a whole different story and an increadible abuse of power.
