Situation at my cousin's school... - October 14th 2009, 02:01 PM

I have a younger cousin in fifth grade. He's pretty much been like a little brother to me since he's been born.

Well, apparently the other day at school, his class was in the library and him, a good friend of his, and some other boy were away from the rest of the class with the librarian... (Cousin is Jacob, his friend is Hunter, and I don't know the other kid's name.)

Well, I guess Hunter was doing something wrong, so the librarian got frustrated I suppose and told him, "Go sit the f*ck down.", and gave him a little shove. Both Jacob and the other boy saw it. So, naturally, Jacob is going to stick up for his friend and went up and told the principal about it.

I guess when Jacob got home from school that day, he told his mom about it. She called Hunter's mom and talked to her about it as well. I guess they got together and talked to the principal.

The next day the principal calls Jacob into the office and tells him that she's already talked to all of the other kids in the class and gotten the truth out of them, so now it's his turn to tell the truth. Now, remember, the only ones that saw it were Jacob, Hunter, and the other boy. The principal says that she's not even going to take what the other boy said as being credible since he's a "trouble maker".

That stupid lady makes Jacob call his mom AT WORK while in the office at school. The principal tells her that she thinks that Jacob has something to tell her. So she gives the phone to him and tells him to tell her... So, over the phone from school, calling his mother while she's at work, he's crying while saying that he lied about the whole thing.

Obviously, it makes her day at work more difficult because she's worried about him. And when she got off to go pick him up at the end of the day, he got into the car and said that what he said over the phone wasn't the truth and that the principal made him say it.

Now what in the world was that? This makes me so mad.

I've had so many bad experiences just like this with principals and teachers it's ridiculous... luckily I had a mom who knew I was well behaved and that unfortunately a lot of teachers and principals are crap. Granted there are some really good ones, but for the most part... crap. I'm really sorry for what happened, and I know how he feels It's really upsetting, especially at that age. If I were his mom , I'd go give them a piece of my mind. Even if it's just to make herself feel a little better...

Re: Situation at my cousin's school... - October 14th 2009, 04:15 PM

something similar happened to me.. when i was in year 7 [so i was like 11] this art teacher was taking pictures of us in art and as a "joke" told us he was gunna put them on a porn site. me and my three friends told the headmaster about it and he spoke to the teacher then said that we were lying about it. all of our parents went mad at the school and eventually the teacher admitted to it and was fired.. but it was so upsetting that they just assumed we were lying. teachers like this make me so angry. the principal shouldn't jump to conclusions, even if one of the other kids is a "trouble maker." are the parents going back to the principal to complain? i hope the school doesn't get away with it!. grrr. it makes me mad how schools always take the teacher/member of staffs side in everything.


..and our dreams will break the boundaries of our fears..

Well, she was going to, but figures that it would only cause hard feelings against her child and make his school experience that much more difficult for him.

Can you call the school and talk to them about it? My suggestion is don't give up, that is certainly not okay.

If I was the mother, I'd call the school and bring this up again. If the principal won't listen, go to whomever is above her.

I agree with Amanda Kate. What the librarian did was completely unacceptable... If you can get the other boy to confront to principal as well, it might help make the case a little stronger. And if those at his school don't listen, definitely go above to the school system supervisor or something.

Hopefully this will get resolved.

I've already had problems with principals believing one teacher over the entire class... I think that, when you're in a high-up job like that, you become a bit removed from school life and think of things from a "hierarchy" prospective. Also a lot of parents seem afraid of confronting the principal, I wonder if they don't have some leftover feelings from their days in school??
