An Arizona teacher has won an injunction against a student who cursed her every day in class. The 15-year-old boy has been ordered to stay away from the reading teacher in school and out.
In (Elizabeth Anne) Moore’s case, she first complained to school officials on March 18. The student was placed in a three-day after-school detention program, but the behavior continued. On April 7, the same day she filed for the injunction, Moore filed a new complaint with the school and the student received a five-day suspension and was not allowed back into her classroom when he returned to campus.
“I am sexually harassed and abused by his vulgar language and unable to protect my other students from him,” Moore wrote in her complaint. “His father tells me he cannot control [his son].”
The father ascribes his son’s misbehavior to growing pains, says the Christian Science Monitor.
“He’s a growing child,” (Reyes) Cavazos said. “He’s going through the typical teenage years. You know, he has good days and bad days.”
When parents shrug off their children’s misbehavior, the kids grow up to be real pains.
