    okay, i get it...
    you're not allowed to put your hands on a student
    but the double standard here is being completely glossed over
    let's say the same thing had happened... except that the teacher was black and the (now) white kid called him an N
    people would be up in arms about the kid being a racist and praising the teacher for his bravery
    nah, fuck that shit
    little punk should have had his ass kicked twice -- first by the teacher and then by his father
    i know finski will have an opinion on all the shit teachers now have to face/deal with


    Teacher charged after lifting teen and carrying him out of classroom
    Enjoy Francis and Katherine Carroll | ABC News — 9 January 2020

    A teacher in Florida is facing a charge of simple battery, after cellphone footage taken during class showed him lifting a 14-year-old student out of his desk and shoving him out of the classroom.

    The incident occurred Tuesday at Buddy Taylor Middle School in Palm Coast, Florida, according to the Flagler County Sheriff's Office.

    Jeffrey Paffumi, 47, said that the student was "being disobedient" and had "refused to turn down his music when asked to," according to the charging document. The teacher, who's been with the district since 2005, said that when he attempted to pause the student's music, the teen "slapped his hand away and turned the music back on."

    Paffumi told police the student also had called him a "cracker."

    In the video, taken by an unknown student but shared with police, Paffumi can been grabbing the teen who is sitting at a desk and lifting him out of his seat.

    "Show me how tough you are. Wanna call me a 'cracker,'" he says to the teen as he carries him toward the classroom door.

    "Mr. Paffumi grabs (the teen) with his right arm and lifts him out of the chair. Mr. Paffumi then hooks Derrick's right arm with his left arm ... (and) lifts (the teen) off his feet and carries him across the classroom," the charging document said, according to an officer who watched the video. "Once he was outside the classroom, Mr. Paffumi then put (the teen) down and shoved him away from the doorway towards the hall.”

    Paffumi told authorities that he'd treated the teen like an "unruly student and grabbed him safely so he couldn't hurt himself or anybody else," according to the charging document.

    He also told police that "once outside the door, he pushed (the teen) to separate themselves in case (the teen) was mad" and so the student could not strike him.

    The parents of the 14-year-old boy told the Flagler County Sheriff's Office that the incident had occurred during first period Tuesday. He told them about it Tuesday night. The teen was later sent a video of the incident from an unknown student who was also in the class. Authorities said the teen's parents then alerted the school administrators Wednesday.

    According to the affidavit, in a later interview with authorities, the teen said that he had been playing music on his computer and had asked the teacher for help. Paffumi muted his computer twice and the teen said that he'd told the teacher, "Put my s--- down cracka."

    The teen said that the teacher had not restricted his airway when he grabbed and lifted him out of the classroom and that he had not been injured in the incident, according to authorities. Although the teen's father said his son was wrong for the things he'd said, the affidavit stated, he still sought charges against the teacher.

    In a news release Wednesday announcing the charge against Paffumi, Sheriff Rick Staly said, "As a teacher you have to control your temper even when students test you. This is an unfortunate incident involving a teacher and a student. ... Corporal punishment like the old days is not allowed today."

    Paffumi was booked into the Sheriff Perry Hall Inmate Detention Facility where he was held with no bond. He has since been released and is on leave pending the outcome of the probe.

    Flagler Schools Superintendent James Tager said in the news release, in part, that "the actions of this teacher are not consistent with how we expect our educators to act and behave and it will not be tolerated."

    "We immediately removed Mr. Paffumi from the classroom following the incident. ... I have stressed to my executive team the importance of handling this investigation with the utmost seriousness it deserves," Tager said. "I also understand a video shows only a portion of a particular incident, so this investigation will encompass the incident in totality and not just what was captured on a camera."​

    An ass kicking at home might have made the potential ass kicking at school unnecessary.

    Obviously, I wasn't there, so what the hell do I know? Still, I taught in publics long long enough to know that I didn't want to teach in them for much longer. The pay was solid, and most of the kids were actually awesome, but the abundance of shitty teachers & admin soaking the union for benefits and protection from firing was huge and problematic.

    For what it's worth, as soon as this white teacher in Florida grabbed that kid and picked him up and took him out, it was all over for his puffy white ass. Even if he's 100% in the right, there's no fucking way in this day & age that he's going to survive this. There will be a settlement, and they'll pay that kid's family some chunk of serious change which they don't deserve, and the teacher's union rep will get some sort of payout settlement to make the teacher happy. Nothing will be better. It'll just get worse.

    In my private school world, I COULD do something like this, but only in self defense & I'd need serious corroboration to withstand the scrutiny.

    This age is so compromised; it is grotesque. Beating kids senseless like the old days was equally bullshit but the pendulum has swung so far the other way, and it's even more damaging now.

    I'll be out of education in 10-12 years if I'm not dead first, but I have no idea what education is going to look like in public or private by the time my kids are parents themselves.

    I had a teacher call me on some bullshit when I was in 7th grade. He took care of me about as easy as it gets without striking me. I threw a non committed punch and he made me look like the bitch that I was. That was all on me. We had a talk and I got it.

    Other kids got involved and he got some sort of reprimand. I was put in another room when I came back but he and I were good. My pops was pissed at ME and only ME. My Dad had respect for the man.

    I think about that every so often. I do believe that humbled me. I can understand the message and possible fear that it could instill in other students but cannot fathom how something like that can be handled in any other way.
