I started this petition because I have reached out to the news and the Superintendent of Sherman Indpendent Schools with no resolution. My nephew is a great kid, a kid that has ADHD/Bipolar. He doesn't respond well to threats or aggressive behavior. He recently had 4 adult teachers restrain him in a classroom for not getting off a computer. His mother was not contacted about the incident, she saw marks on her sons hand when he arrived home from school that day.
His mother contacted the police department. They were able to get in touch with the principle, who stated "she isn't able to control her son". If we have our children in school, aren't we to trust they are in good hands? That they will not be hurt by other students, let alone the teachers? Well this is not the case at SISD. Last year, another teacher hit him in the face with his own shoe. He still had a mark on his face when his mother arrived.
After getting the superintendent involved she was able to get a meeting with the principle, since she tried and he stated "you cannot come in the morning, but on MY time". They then informed her that the marks on his hands were self inflicted. When she spoke to the officer at her home, she was told if she still wanted to press child abuse charges after the meeting she could. Well, she has now been denied this as well. They side with SISD regarding thier decision that this was self inflicted by a 12 year old boy.
There are more and more parents choosing to homeschool their children due to the bullying by teachers. One friend took her child out due to her not being allowed to use the restroom due to chronic bladder problems. She had doctor's note stating that her child needed to be allowed to use the restroom when needed. She has since developed so many problems from the teacher refusing to allow her the restroom. She is now home schooled as well.
We must stop this bullying! It's not just other students! A principle should never tell a mother of their child their son will never work or amount to anything. We send our children to school to learn and grow. You are putting out that light when you say things of this nature to young children.
Please help stop this from happening to anyone else. IF WE DON'T STAND UP FOR OUR CHILDREN, WHO WILL??
