The school year started with an awkward moment.
An 8-year-old boy with a serious face and short blond hair had walked into the classroom of his middle school.
It was April 1, 2019, and his name was J.B. But the boy’s name was James B. It wasn’t long before the boy began teasing a classmate for being a teacher.
“How come you’re the only one in this class who is supposed to be a teacher?” the boy asked the teacher, J.K. The teacher responded, “Oh, you’re going to have to learn to be one.”
The boy responded, not knowing the answer to the question, “why are you so serious about it?”
The boy’s classmates, who had known each other for a few years, were in disbelief.
Then, the teacher explained that the boys grades weren’t very good, and that they had to go to school.
“You can’t be a good teacher if you’re a bad student,” the teacher said.
The boy didn’t understand.
So the boy decided to go back to the principal, and he was sent home.
The incident caught the attention of the New York State Department of Education, which is investigating.
“The teacher had no training in teaching and had no knowledge of teaching, and the boy was not being punished for being an out-of-school student,” said Education Department spokesperson Julie Zauzmer.
“When the teacher was told that the boy had misbehaved, he responded with inappropriate and offensive comments to the boy and the teacher.
It is clear that this behavior violated the district’s Code of Student Conduct and the law, and this case was brought to our attention.”
The school district is now taking the boy to court to see if he is still allowed to return to the classroom.
“This is a first-time case where a student was removed from his classroom and charged for his actions,” said Zaufmer.
The school has a history of inappropriate comments about teachers.
A few years ago, the school sent an email to teachers warning them that it was taking their students out of the classroom after they started having problems with their grades.
The email said, “We will have to re-examine our practice in the coming weeks.
If we can’t work to improve our teaching practices, our students will suffer.”
After that incident, teachers received emails from the district reminding them that they would be required to report any misbehavior to the school.
But they also received a letter telling them to not report anything that was “off-the-record.”
This is a common tactic used by teachers to discipline their students.
It can be very confusing for students, and students are often unsure about what is and isn’t a disciplinary action.
This letter is particularly confusing for parents, because they do not know whether their children will be disciplined for any type of misbehavior.
In this case, the boy said that the district sent him home for having a negative opinion about a teacher he knew.
“I thought they were going to teach me something,” he said.
But it turns out that the school is now facing a lawsuit from a student, and they want the teacher’s dismissal.
“It’s really confusing,” said the student, who requested anonymity.
“Why did they remove me from school?
Why didn’t they send me home?
Why did they punish me for my misbehavior?”
The district did not respond to CBS News’ request for comment on the case.
J.C.B., who has been teaching at the school for about two years, has no intention of going back to class, even though he is no longer allowed to.
“If they want me back in, I’ll go,” J.L. said.
“But I don’t know what’s going to happen to my grades.”
A lawsuit against the district is likely to be filed by the boy in the next few months.
If the district were to dismiss the teacher in this case or allow the boy back into class, J., who is now a junior, would be back in class.
“My mom would hate me if I did that,” he explained.
“She doesn’t understand how teachers are supposed to work.”
The district has not responded to CBS NEWS’ request to comment on this case.
The New York City Department of Civil Rights has been involved in this situation before, and it has issued a statement about the case, which can be found here.
The Education Department is also investigating.
A letter from the department’s office of Civil Right said, in part, “It is our goal to ensure that all students are treated with dignity, respect and respect of all students.
In the case of a teacher being removed from a classroom, it is important to note that
