In reference to the West Central Tribune headline on Jan. 9: Parent seeks firing of Willmar teacher over alleged mistreatment.
Luke, Chapter 17, verses 1 to 3, reads: "There will always be temptations to sin," Jesus said to his disciples, "but woe to the man that does the tempting. If he were thrown into the sea with a huge rock tied to his neck he would be far better off than facing punishment in store for those who harm these little children's souls."
When I read the state's report of this investigation, I cried. Picture this: a 40-pound little person being shoved to the ground, three grownups holding her down for an hour (maybe even more), for reasons we will never know, however, illegal. What good could this possibly have done but rid this individual of their own anger?
I question how many times these very allegations were reported to administrative staff before two years had come to pass. If this is so, how could you want this teacher to represent our schools? How could you continue to let this teacher hurt our little children? Things like this will haunt you.
If a child lives with acceptance and friendship, he or she learns to find love in our world. This we should want for every little person. Ten positives to every negative, and we will create outstanding citizens.
No more lies! Let's get people like this out of our schools.
