So, it probably wonít turn into PD, but one can hope.
My friend is a high school teacher. A student assaulted her in class. She was not hurt, but the other students saw it, potentially affecting her authority.
She finds out the student is getting a VERY light punishment for the assault. Friend did not care for that, went to talk to the appropriate person in charge.
Who basically told her that being assaulted was part of her job and she needed to get used to it.
Stunned, my friend said she was fairly certain the teacherís union would disagree. Said person in charge laughed, said no they wouldnít, but she should feel free to talk to them about it.
The teacherís union is not amused, does not think that being assaulted is part of friendís job description, and the complaint is now working its way through the proper channels.
(This will probably not affect the studentís discipline, but now friend is mostly upset at the lack of support she has received from the administration. And on the up side, all the students in the classroom who saw the assault, all of whom think snitching is for female dogs, volunteered to write up what they saw if it would help my friend/their teacher.)
