Bullying Teacher Suspended, but problem continues
This confirms my belief that some teachers hate children. I am really glad that the school have taken action and suspended her subject to investigations.
I can well understand the psychological problems that children face when they go to school as I have suffered from bullying by teachers too. They prey on the quiet ones too. It is not just the physical aspect but the emotional abuse that goes with it, and the depression, post traumatic stress and loss of education that goes with it.
I remember being 'sick' almost every single time 'certain' teachers were on the timetable, the times I refused to go to school even when I was outside the gate. My parents at the time didn't question it.I also remember the child abuse other kids received, one person at this 'convent school' was even shaken.
So even some religious private schools are awful. It all gets hidden behind close doors, and sensitive kids face 'class room terrorism'.
And the 'putdowns'... oh, my teachers were great! Putdowns galore and no encouragement. My parents paid a lot of money for the school, and got nothing for it. I had the wonderful pleasure of being told by two private teachers ramming it in, that 'we would never pass a certain exam' but luckily I ignored them, got a supportive private teacher and one-to-one tuition, which I highly recommend and got top grades.
When you are young, you think the emotional and physical abuse is 'normal and what you deserve', or think you deserve because the teachers, the grown ups, tell you all the time. It is child abuse.
My maths class had a 'Tyrannical Teacher' who ranted if you didn't get it first time. I only learned to subtract from my father and to divide from my younger brother, that's how bad the teacher was. I couldn't concentrate with all the anxiety.
I always remember the time I had tears in my cookery class - even though a cookery class it should be fun! I cannot cook scrambled eggs without Mrs..... haunting me like some skinny ogress.
I went to a private school and I think there was more emphasis on 'discipline' than having an education. I don't think we were even expected to enjoy lessons.
I would love to sue my school but naturally it is hard to get evidence without having CCTV in the class rooms and now witnesses are not around anymore or easy to get hold of. I certainly recommend 'reactive stress' to be put in the School's Accident Report Form (and keeping a copy of it). Keeping a diary is a another good idea not to mention evidence in the form of independent medical reports with emphasis on independent.
Even on the forums, on the school's website or Facebook Groups, comments about teachers 'are moderated'. The scary thing is that they are probably still there.
As a child, in those days, it was hard to talk to your parents about it. Luckily adult education 'had saved me', and the teachers were normal, and wonderful.
I heard recently that one of my bullying teachers had commited suicide.
"A teacher who bullied her pupils, to the extent some of them began bed wetting and one showed signs of psychological abuse, has been suspended for one year.
Joanna Hyde, who was a Year Five teacher at the Welsh medium school Ysgol Y Berllan Deg in Cardiff, was earlier found guilty of professional misconduct by a panel of the General Teaching Council for Wales. The panel's chairman Gareth Jones said she must successfully complete training in positive behaviour management before she is eligible to register as a teacher again. Concerns were raised about Miss Hyde's behaviour towards 15 pupils in her class over three months at the start of 2007. The misconduct hearing was told that she threw a book at one pupil and called another "a wimp" and "a clown" in front of the class. One pupil was so intimidated he asked his mother to dye his red hair brown so he would be less noticeable to Miss Hyde, the hearing was told."
