I didn’t believe this headline to be “true” so I had to read the article. A middle school girl was reprimanded in class and kept out of one her team’s basketball games because she said, “I love you” in her native language to two of her friends.
I’m not sure I fully understand the teachers reasoning here. Unless, it was disruptive to the class, which I don’t see is the case here. I’m not a teacher, and I have great respect for them. However, wouldn’t it have been just fine to ask her to repeat what she said to the class, and what it meant? Or to simply say, “wait until after class to speak to your friends.”
Do you think this student deserved what happened? Do you see this as being a big deal, like they are making it out to be? Am I missing something here??
What do you think?
