This teacher is nice to many of the kids and they like her. Many of the parents like her. I know that she will continue to find a scapegoat in her class every year (she told me how a child from last year 'hates' her, and I observed this kid go out of his way to avoid her). I don't know what to do. It is bizarre that in a profession where an adult has power over a group of children, there is such a thing as tenure. It should be easy to get rid of an abusive teacher because the psychologically well-being of children is at stake. Instead we adults tolerate a system where it is extremely difficult to remove an adult who is hurting children. That's wrong.
