Thread: Lecturer sacked for throwing cardboard at sleeping pupil

    Re: Lecturer sacked for throwing cardboard at sleeping pupil

    Like many others the wooden chalkboard eraser was the weapon of choice at Llantwit comp.
    Additionally the ruler across the knuckles or being lifted by your hair were alternatives in the classroom.
    Then there was the cane which was administers by the deputy head who had a fearsome reputation.
    We thought we were hard done by until a couple of Scottish lads arrived and told us all about the strap.
    Now that sounded truly medieval.

    I agree with this. I didn't feel respected and I didn't have any respect for many of my teachers. They didn't deserve it. They were petty, childish and bullies.

    Not directly related but when I was in my final year at college we went on a geography field trip ......to Majorca !

    There was a PhD student who was 3 years older than use and took us for some lectures who tagged along

    I was chatting up one of the ladies on the course as we shared a mutual love of heavy rock

    Anyway he starts giving me the stares and later in the evening comes over and headbutts me which didn't connect so I gave him a slap

    It turns out he and this student had been boffing and I was clearly on his Manor 👋

    Fecking teachers

    To be fair to the student he was perhaps applying some extra curriculum learning curves ??

    Ever chucked a beer mat for fun in a pub ?? I'm guessing this is where this act was ,world has gone mad , lose a job for that for someone who didn't even want to learn or look up , and someone wanted to teach him and has so been for 20 years all on taxes payer's money FFS .

    So you condone teachers or lecturers being able to throw things at learners? If you are happy with just a bit of cardboard, where does it stop?

    Just a cardboard, if he threw a large heavy object at the feckless student then its serious and wrong. Pathetic.

    Our games teacher used to pull the short hair, just in front of your ear, bloody painful. Chalk board rubbers & wooden rulers here as well.

    Games teachers were vile , ours introduced us to murder ball ,few bruised kids ,sadly the very teacher suffered a broken collar bone in one game , it was played with a large heavy leather ball in a gym , being smashed into the wooden climbing frames was so much fun, happy days.

    So throwing things at kids should be based on size and weight?

    It's not about what he threw. It's that he threw something. He exercised poor judgment. And he set a terrible example.

    I call my mates twats and do a lot of other things in a pub that a teacher shouldn't do in the classroom

    Sounds like a fair criteria as any.

    He could have spat at the kid, a small mass of phlegm isn't likely to weigh too much. I wonder if LOM would have been ok with that? After all it would pass the weight criterion.

    Re: Lecturer sacked for throwing cardboard at sleeping pupil

    Mid 70s had a little disagreement with another kid in class.
    Two 9 year olds scrapping over the desks.
    The teacher broke us up and told the other kid to put his hand out.
    6 of the best followed with a wooden ruler.
    He turned to me and said hand out for my six.
    On the fifth one the ruler snapped and i thought I was getting away with it.
    Boy was I wrong
    He went and got another ruler and finished off the sixth so I went and sat down.
    He asked me why had I sat down as he hadn't punished me for breaking the ruler.
    So I was given another six for damaging school property 😆
    Different times.

    I know. That's half of the problem.

    My dad's dad used to reguarly beat him with his belt. My dad thought that was horrendous but would think nothing of giving me and my sister an almighty slapping. I have once slapped my son, who is now 8, when I lost it with him. I felt awful about it.

    that's nothing. My PE teacher would flay us alive ,make us play murder ball in our undies then kill us bury us, Dance on our graves then makes us do twenty laps of the footy pitch.
