I'd be ****ed off but I think I'd go in asking for an explaination. Hoping it sounds as crazy coming out of the teacher's own mouth.
I think it's very very inappropriate way of "disciplining"... what is it? Sounds like teacher facilitated bullying?

Thats been my plan all along. As i said im curious to hear what the reasoning and justification there is behind this method. At the end of the day, if i dont like what she has to say, ill take it further, head teacher, principal and so on.
My hubs is a teacher, i know the crap he cops from parents, im not going to rip the woman a new one. Even if i am extremely angry at this point.

I'd be furious, kids can be so cruel and even if there was good reason I believe its the teachers role to discipline not a grade two student.

I'm secondary, not primary... But that system makes zero sense to me. Is the purpose to identify kids who aren't behaving during reading time (dobbed in by peers)? Sounds like a mix of survivor/lord of the flies!
A much better system would be to alert the teacher if someone was disruptive etc and alternatively turn the tables from neg to positive and have the leader identify the child who reads best/behaves/improves/participates??

It sounds like an environment bullying will start in. It's not a fair thing for kids to have in a classroom environment!!

its weird ... I mean even if you DO choose the more mature students to be group leader, they are STILL not going to write their best mate's name on the board??? so even if its not producing obvious bullying, its still bias and unfair??
I would definitely be asking why this approach is used ... and how she can verify that it is a fair and unbias method of behaviour management.

That is totally unexceptable, I would be majorly cheeses off and definitely have a talk to the principal.
