Teacher mocks student on Facebook, faces discipline A Chicago public school teacher now faces disciplinary action after she posted a picture of a student and led the way in mocking the girl's hair while others commented.
Copying something she had seen in a magazine, the 7-year-old girl asked her mother to tie Jolly Rancher candies to the end of her braids, adding some color. The student then came in for picture day.

Other teachers complimented the look so she was comfortable when the computer teacher in question asked to take a camera phone picture.

On Facebook, the teacher posted the picture and posted comments like "And y’all thought I was joking!," "This is for picture day too! SMDH," and "Yeah, this is foolishness at its best."

Lucinda Williams, the mother of the student said she was shown the page by a friend who was also "friends" with the teacher on Facebook. After Williams complained to the principal, the teacher apologized and removed the picture.

Regardless, the Chicago Public School says:

The (Overton Elementary School) principal said this was a good teacher but this was a case of poor judgment. It will warrant disciplinary action.

You cannot humiliate a 7-year-old girl like that, especially if there's an adult doing it. This is one of the things that is completely unacceptable for a teacher to do.

Where does it say high school? And disciplinary action does not mean termination. She probably received a written warning.

Only in America.

You can argue 'free speech' all you want, but this is an entirely unprofessional thing for that teacher to do as the teacher has a duty to care for all of her pupils. This, evidently, means that she has not done this duty.




IMPORTANT: If you hate Sony for being so corrupt, copy this image into your signature too!

The parent should be ashamed of letting her child wear candy in her hair. It doesnt matter if they are in or out of the wrapper. If you send your child to school wearing food you should expect some people to make fun of them.
