A teacher is someone who should supports the students, no matter what the circumstances are. Everyone working with children should be careful how they speak with them and how they perform in front of them. This especially applies to one teacher from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. All the people are born with different talents and capacities, but no one and nothing improves with harsh criticism.
A Father’s post calling his son’s teacher out over a math quiz has become a viral conversation with over thousands calling for the teacher to be fired.
Dad Chris complained to the teacher questioning how this comment was supposed to help his child, to which the teacher said “I’m sorry you feel this way,” according to Chris.
So Chris took to Facebook calling the teacher out. He wrote: “My son’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 child’s work such great motivation.”
His son, Kamdyn, said: “She made me really sad and upset. I was really mad. And (it was) really mean to do.”
Chris’ post went viral with more than 1,000 comments from people, many shocked at the teacher’s comments and others siding with the teacher for calling the 7-year-old’s performance out. A petition calling for the teacher to be fired has attracted more than 20,000 signatures.
Meanwhile, Chris posted in the comments section of his Facebook post that he didn’t know how the situation had been dealt with at the school but he had since moved his child out of her class.
“Maybe it’ll be taken seriously now and it’ll keep it from happening to other teachers and other students,” Chris said, as per Fox56 News.
Kamdyn got his math quiz back with the words “absolutely pathetic” written across it. The second grader showed his dad the paper which also noted he answered 13 questions in 3 minutes with a sad face drawn on it.
