Dad asks for son's teacher to be fired after her derogatory comments

parenting 23/04/2019

A dad has fired up a lot of parents on social media after he shared a picture of his son's marked homework to his Facebook page.

The homework was maths based and featured his young son's answers to different equations with the teachers comments scribbled across the top of the page.

"My son Kamdyn's teacher has been so rude to him and myself all year he comes home with this and I am beyond frustrated that someone would write this on a childs work such great motivation" the dad wrote on alongside the image.

The teacher's comments read that the dad's son was "absolutely pathetic".

The young boy is in Year 3 of primary school, so answering 13 questions in three minutes seems like a decent effort for most. Especially because no one knows his learning capabilities.

One person slammed: "This needs to go to the board of education this is unacceptable she is trying to kill this child's self esteem sad she should not be teaching."

Another added: "This sucks. I hope that they at least move him to a different teacher. Good luck."

However, others sided with the teacher and claimed his son's maths skills weren't up to scratch.

"When are you going to address the fact that your son is lacking in his math skills? Seems like misplaced anger," commented one.

Since the post was shared, a petition has been created to get the teacher fired from the school.
