  • I TOTALLY support the actions of the teacher. Often times we send our kids to school and they are picked on and harassed by other kids with no one to take up for them. What sent her over the edge was him picking on a handicap little girl. TRUE she may have went too far, but she was taking up for another defenseless kid! And all the licks were open handed. Maybe if his mom was doing a little of this at home he wouldn't be such a bully at school. I wish we had more teachers like her who stopped the bullying. I'm sure the kids in that class will think twice before picking on someone else.

  • First of all, I give honer to god. I feel no one should be blamed but the teacher involved and the witnessing teacher for the beating of that child. The (...) should be embarrassed about the incident and other incidents that have been going on there. she's supposed to be in charge, not the teachers or the students doing what they want. the teacher couldn't have been the teacher of the year for two years in a row for nothing. She was only worried about a child with a disability who was being picked on. (no respect or home training; his mother says "she doesn't discipline her child", couldn't that have been the problem?) That this child has been expelled several times, and the problems still occur with that particular child. That still does not give her the right to beat him. she should have reported it, put him out of her class and written him up for harassment of another student. Then told the disabled child's parent so that she can sue him for harassment of her child. then the parent would have removed him from that school. He was nothing but a trouble maker. It is a good teaching curriculum at charter schools, so that's why the parent keeps sending him back. And no my children don't go there and I don't know anyone that does. I'm just giving my opinion to the situation. I feel after this "yes" the school will remain open, they will clean it up and get new staff for next year.

  • This is a great place to study if you want to grow up to be a prison guard at Guantanamo. The wonderful teaching staff will teach you all of the moves you need to beat the heck out of detainees. Let me warn you, this school is not for everyone. You need a thick head and a thick hide to make it here.

  • Considering the thing that has been in the news about this school and its staff, why would anyone in the right frame of mind send their child to this school? and as for the staff, YOU ALL SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF YOURSELVES, INCLUDING THE PRINCIPAL, DIRECTOR, OR WHOMEVER IS IN CHARGE OF THIS BUILDING; ALL OF THOSE STAFF MEMBERS THAT WITNESSED THIS SHOULD BE PUT IN JAIL AND THE GUARDS SHOULD BE LET LOOSE ON THAT (...). I AM OUTRAGED ABOUT THIS, THAT SCHOOL NEEDS TO BE CLOSED DOWN.

  • That kid was making fun of a special ed kid in the class. I'm sorry she lost her job, after all, they did sadly have to fire her. However, I'm glad that someone had the respect enough for the children around who are punks to jump in and SCREAM NO MORE. DO YOU UNDERSTAND NO MORE! WE HAVE HAD ENOUGH! These kids placed in alternative schools, that can't make it in regular schools, use a lot of funding because of their behavior. They need to be stopped, and personally I think the paddle needs to be brought back. What does one do when they can not control a kid in the class. Some of these total monsters need to be slapped, hit, and kicked like a dog when they are treating others in that fashion. The uprising of these punks have to stop! Much of it has to do with the parents, but not all. I'm a firm believer of genetic issues, about how one child needs more attention to be gratified than others. The problem is that, bystanders are subject to the whims of these kids, and nothing else works. My guess is that this kid may think twice now about being verbally abusive to his next teachers, and other classmates down the road. Sorry someone had to get fired, and all the rest that will happen. at least the teacher was someone that finally stood up to a juvenile jerk

  • WOW!! The fact that the mother had to be told by her son means all of the teachers have been covering for each other and this has probably happened before. The Principal and the teacher should be fired, sued and thrown in jail.

  • I just watched the video. I can't believe that teacher! It makes you wonder how long this has been going on. And the school needs to be shut down. Think about it. If those teachers sat there and watched this poor kid get beat then there is no one there fit to teach the kids! That teacher is lucky that wasn't my child!

  • Obviously after the incident with the science teacher, this school has no proper supervision of students or faculty. This school and the teacher involved should be ASHAMED of themselves. DISGUSTING! It makes me furious as a parent to see this happen to a child!

  • This school should be shut down. It is nothing but an eyesore. Kids are always seen walking down the middle of the road during the day. The place is a dump. I do not see how it is even up and running.

  • GREAT SCHOOL! Kids will be kids, they control them just as any other school unless you are wealthy enough to afford a private school I think they do the best with what we are given and you can finish that sentence if you want!

  • Jamie's House is the best school ever! I believe everyone is good at hating on this school because the principals treat us like our age instead of little children that don't know how to control their selves.So I think it would be a great decision to register at Jamie's House.
