A teacher needs to be someone who always stands up for the kids.
Although everyone of us is born with unique skills and abilities, nothing or no one improvised with damaging criticism. I believe that someone who deals with young kids should be able to see this quite clearly.
Following a viral post by a father criticizing his son’s math instructor, many have called for the teacher’s dismissal.
The words “absolutely pathetic” were scribbled across Kamdyn Piland’s math test when it was returned.
The second-grader displayed the paper to his father, which also recorded that he finished 13 questions in 3 minutes while drawing a dejected expression on it.
Dad Chris objected to the instructor, asking how this remark was going to benefit his kid. The teacher responded, “I’m sorry you feel this way,” Chris claims, to which Chris objected.
Chris then criticized the teacher on Facebook. He stated that he is beyond furious somebody would put this on a child’s work with wonderful incentive. His son Kamdyn’s teacher has been so disrespectful to him and himself all year.
My son Kamdyn's teacher has been so rude to him and myself all year he comes home with this and I am beyond frustrated that someone would write this on a childs work such great motivationPosted by Chris R Piland on Tuesday, 16 April 2019
According to Kamdyn, “he truly saddened and offended him. He was furious. And that was actually rude to do.
More than 1,000 people commented on Chris’ post from April of last year, many of whom were horrified by the instructor’s remarks and others of whom agreed with the teacher for criticizing the performance of the 7-year-old.
More than 20,000 people have signed a petition asking that the instructor be dismissed.
Just around 1,000 people have signed another petition asking her to maintain her work, noting that what she did was bad but not something she should lose her job over.
Chris, in the meantime, said in the Facebook post’s comments area that he didn’t know how the incident had been handled at the school but that he has now taken his kid out of her class.
Chris remarked that maybe it’ll be taken seriously now and it’ll deter it from occurring to other instructors and other children.
Do you agree with the teacher’s critique of this 7-year-arithmetic old’s assignment?
