Dear Dish-It: How Can I Get My Teacher Fired?

Dear Dish-It,

This year, I got stuck with the worst teacher. She puts duct tape on our desks to threaten us to stop talking, she screams and swears at us and once she even hit a kid with her wooden ruler. She’s horrible. But the worst part is, my parents don’t believe me. The minute another teacher or parent comes into the class she acts as sweet as honey. This woman should be fired. What should I do?

Fed Up

Dear Fed Up,

This is a tough position to be in. Many teachers yell, especially if they have a class that disrespects their authority. But if she has built a reputation for unacceptable behavior like swearing, hitting students and threatening them with duct tape, then you absolutely need to report this.

Speak To Your Principal

Start by talking to your fellow classmates. Make sure you have all of your facts straight and then report her behavior to the principal. This is the first step. Your principal may not take action right away, as getting a teacher fired or suspended requires proof.

Speak To Your Parents

Next talk to your parents. I know you say they don’t believe you, but getting them to file a complaint as well will be very valuable to your case. You could even gather some of your classmates and talk to your school’s PAC. I’m sure there are other parents that would be very concerned to hear about your teacher’s behavior. Lastly, try talking to your teacher’s former students who can vouch for you.

Last Resort

As a last resort - and I mean last - turn on the voice record function of your iPhone and leave it in your bag or pocket. If you can catch your teacher swearing at you guys, your principal and your parents might take you more seriously.
