I'm fuming. I just got off the phone with my daughter who was in tears because she had lost her notebook. I asked her why she was so upset since it's just a notebook. Then it came out. Her English teacher has been terrorising the eight year olds in her charge, pulling ears, pulling hair. My heart breaks when I hear her tell me such things.
I swear if she lays a finger on my daughter I will go first to the local police station to press charges and then hire a lawyer and make sure her life is very uncomfortable for the forseeable future.
This kind of low key violence is endemic in schools here.
