Substitute teacher chokes down 12 year-old student
LINK

quote:

Deputies in Polk County say a middle school substitute teacher admitted “losing his cool” after he choked a “trash-talking” student who had declined to fight him. According to investigators, a 12-year-old student at Westwood Middle School in Winter Haven told his school resource officer that his P.E. coach, Robert Knight, had choked him on Wednesday. The student admitted “smack-talking,” which apparently led to Knight to take his shirt off and challenge the boy to a fight. When the teen declined – “because Knight is a 30-year-old man,” the arrest affidavit notes – the substitute coach wrapped his arm around the boy’s neck and shoved him to the wall. Other students intervened and pulled him off the boy.


quote:

When detectives questioned Knight, they say he told them the boy “does a lot of trash-talking.” “I guess I finally let it get to me,” he allegedly told them. “Not excusing it, just being real with you.” Knight claimed that he had blacked out. When he came to, he said, the students told him he had grabbed the student around the neck.

I can't think of anything worse to have to do as an occupation than be a substitute teacher at an urban, public school. You are completely powerless and at the mercy of the students for the most part. The students' only goal is to break you. They take great joy in seeing actual tears or an event such as this.

If I was a teacher or substitute teacher, there would be the same kind of thread started about me.


It's why I don't work in the school system. frick that. Teachers all have a place reserved in heaven for putting up with the bull shite from students, parents, and the state government.
