A teacher at Manatee County School District in Bradenton, Florida has caused a controversy after posting an insulting remark about one of her 8-year-old students on Facebook. The teacher, who has not been identified, posted a status message stating: "I'm fairly convinced that one of my students may be the evolutionary link between orangutans and humans." A number of other teachers responded to the comment before the school registrar intervened.
"I send my child to school, trusting them to teach him, not to talk about him" said the boy's mom, Lisa Wade. "I'm disgusted with how they talked about my child. It hurts."
While the school district has issued an apology, no disciplinary action has been planned. As a result, Wade has hired an attorney. She wants somebody to be held accountable.
How would you react if your child's teacher made fun of him publicly?
