my child was taken to the assistant principal's office for "supporting" the bad behavior of two kids against a new student. he was with them in the moment that they told something to the new student. according to the school my child should have told the teacher instead of speaking at all. my child is 8 years old and they consider him a bully, they are telling him he is a bully of "level 3" in third grade. because of this the assistant perincipal told imto take his school shirt off in front of his two friends and told him toreturn to class with only an undershirt on. he felt really embarrased annd he has been really depressed during the weekend. the bullying behavior that the other two kids had was to tell the new student to not sit with them. i just want to know if the behavior of the assistant principal in taking my child's shirt and belittling him in front of his classmates is ethical.
Betty Ann This seems strange. Is there any possibility that he was told to take off the shirt because the shirt was inappropriate? For example, gang colors, inappropriate words, etc.

Did the school administrator contact you about the incident?

I suggest you go to the principal and discuss the situation and th...See More

delehla Is removal of the school shirt part of the discipline policy? Was this also done with the other two boys? Was your son singled out with this type of discipline or is this common? If he was singled out I definitely would talk with the principal.

Seriously???? You think that type of discipline is Ok as long as it is in their policy? His behavior was worse than the kids. Who cares if he was singled out IT IS WRONG to do that to a child. Period! This from counselors? Scary.
