I'd be telling my daughter "sorry sweetie, but I'm going to have to do something about this, it's just not on. I'll make sure they know you didn't want to be involved, but as your mother, I'm not letting it slide."
Then I'd be up there at the school, approach the teacher, let him know your daughter didn't want to say anything but you think as a teacher he should be made aware of his actions. If his response is jerk like, I'd take it higher. It's not a joke and she could have been seriously injured. All it takes is one incident and some poor child will be left with some sort of injury, imagine if he caused a spinal injury, wouldn't be so cool then.
Definitely, say something. Apologize to your daughter, one day she'll get it.

I'd report it. Humiliating a student and risking injury like that is not on!!!

I would report it. It's not on and maybe they could move her to another class. Or better yet suspend the supposed 'cool' or should be say 'cruel' teacher.

What a quandary and I can understand why you're asking what we'd all do.
I know for me, I would be grappling with the Lioness in me wanting to protect my Cub, but on the other hand, not wanting my DD to go to School and have the dreaded fear of being alienated further or seen as a 'dobber' as such. Such a yuck situation all around.
I have no doubt that this Mr R has been waiting for something to come of this, surely he wouldn't think that he has gotten away with it, he is probably on tenterhooks knowing he's likely to be spoken to about this, and if not, I would be very surprised.
All that said, I would be inclined to speak to him AND tell him that your daughter didn't want you to, as she was worried about the possible repercussions from him and the students of doing so and really stress and let it be known to him that you are speaking with him about the incident against your daughter's wishes.

^^^ Thuis is actually the best advice given so far IMO. Talk to him about it.. I'd tell him you're not taking it any further at this point but if your daughter is harrassed by him on any level you'll be taking it to the principal and/or education department. He'll want nothing to come of it and he'll shut his mouth and treat your daughter with respect if he really wants to continue teaching.

I would report it. I would explain to dd that I'm sorry but I have to as your
Mum can't do nothing about this. That's not on. A teacher is there to teach. Not belittle and embarrass the children in his care. I don't think this teacher has what it takes to be a teacher. His not mature enough his acting like his one of the kids not the adult in the room.
