    I would be reporting the teacher, the school and all incidents to the department of education.
    Sorry, but it is absolutely disgusting the way the teacher has treated your child and others, and the lack of response from the school. They need to be investigated.
    Pull her out of the school but don't let the teacher and school get away with what they are doing. It is not right and it needs to be investigated properly.

    Oh and I have no abuse issues potentially clouding my judgement. I have never been abused but if that was happening to my child I would fight and fight and fight until something was done. There is no way that is an 'oh I'm too busy to deal with it' situation. Sorry. I'm sure you don't need the extra stress in your life but you really need to take it further than just writing a letter and having the school brush it off. It just simply isn't good enough.

    I never ever said I was too busy to look after my child.
    This all happened on the last day of school.. so its not like I have let it go.. and been too busy. please be careful with words as I am never too busy for my kids.. but if I do nto work ,they do not eat.. simple reality


    I dont need the stress but I will do whatever I need to , to help my child.

    The principal and this teacher are good friends.. they used to teach together.

    One mum sent an email and the principal forwarded it to the teacher and then sent it back to the parent accidentally .. The email had said private and confidential , but the principal said ..

    Dear L,
    have a look at this..

    xoxoxo


    so not professional..

    when the parent asked her why she did it, she said.. opps I am not so good at email.

    Sorry, I am not having a go at you...my disgust is at the school, not in the way you are dealing with it. This really needs to be taken further though. It's a teacher physically and emotionally abusing students and a principal turning a blind eye to it. It is something that the department of education need to be told about and not something that should be left for another parent to report.
    You could contact the dept. of education in your lunch break and find out what your involvement will need to be.
    Does your ex have the kids at all? Perhaps you could sort out anything the deptn of education needs when yur ex has the kids so it is a bit less stressful for you...if it is possible.

    You really need to call the dept of education in your state.

    It's obvious the prin is not taking any of this seriously, and whether s/he is friends with the teacher or not, his or her first role as prin is advocate for the students. It's their (gosh it's hard to rant when I don't know if the prin is male or female!) responsibility to pull rogue staff into line!

    I was going to suggest keeping Agnes at home on Monday and calling the dept, but you work? So that makes it harder.

    Sincerely- inform the department!! An allegation of abuse is serious stuff!

    Time to go higher up. Dept of Education.

    Im disturbed at the fact that other children as well as your daughter have had issues with this teacher and other children are seeing Counsellors in regards to it all! Doesnt that ring bells in alarm for the professionals looking after these kids??

    My gut, pull her out, but being last term for the year (10 weeks?) it would be such a big couple of months for her, adjusting to one school again and then moving yet again in 2013.

    I cant imagine what you are going through, I worry sick about the sillest things with DS and school. This is NOTHING compared to what you are going through!

    What do you think the schools reaction would be to either change her class or you'll pull her out and take it to the Board of Education to approve a last minute change to the new school? Do you think the threat of the board would at least get her room changed? If they don't change then by all means change school but I understand completely your concern with changing last minute in the last term so maybe that would push an outcome.

    I'm really sorry things are so tough for you at the moment, if it's any consolation I find schooling decisions near on impossible and I'm not under the stress and pressure you are

    Hell would freeze over before I sent my child to a school with a teacher who had hit her.

    I would

    Write a letter to the dept of education immediately

    Move her to the school over the road.

    Oh. Well I would move her to the next closest public school for one term. IMO it will be far less psychologically damaging than being around an a abusive teacher.
