    The mother of a sixth grade North Carolina student said she's enraged after her daughter's teacher gave her a failing grade and wrote "loser" on a recent class assignment, Fox8.com reported Monday.

    Patty Clement of Buncombe County, N.C., claims her daughter received a grade of 20 percent on the assignment "for being a loser."

    Clement, who complained to administrators at Enka Middle School, said the teacher's controversial grading style is unacceptable and claims her daughter is being bullied.

    "The Friday before last, my daughter came home and said he threw her pencil box in the hallway," Clement said in an interview with the Associated Press.

    The teacher has reportedly defended his actions by saying he uses such comments to "relate" better to his students.

    I'm shocked, I expected a bunch of replies stating the kid has to man up and take criticism like an adult. :cool:

    Only issue one of my teacher ever had with me was looking up her dress. I must have dropped that pencile 5 times during class. :laugh2:

    Well she is a chick, so we can't really expect her to man up. Unless of course she wants to take her female prom date in a tux. Then she'll have to man up.

    If it were a boy we'd surely be calling him a *****.

    This man needs to be fired. It's mind-boggling that he even got the job.

    I don't know much about this story but I will tell you this. If you get a 20% on any test in the 6th grade, then you probably have a real problem. I don't know that the teacher needs to point it out in such a fashion but clearly, this child is not doing what is needed to get the grade.

    I think it's a symptom of something much larger in our society. We just don't fail kids and I think it shows in the class room. Behavior, educational results, all of it. I think the teachers are tired and they are near the end of their ropes.

    This teacher probably needs to find another vocation. I think he's probably had it.

    I will admit to shock then. I expected YOU to defend the teacher, not anyone else who normally posts here.

    Why would I defend a teacher in this context? I know you are trying to extrapolate defending a female teacher who engages in carnal relations with a male student with this but they are totally different situations.

    I know there are a lot here who think society is getting too soft and people need toughening up.

    Because you defend any scumbag and hope it gets a rise out of people. I am honestly shocked that you find this at all wrong. I couldn't be more shocked.
