Chris Piland is from Pennsylvania and he was simply appalled when he saw a comment written in red ink on his sonKamdyn'srecent second-grade test. He was so taken back by the comments that he posted in on social media and is calling for this teachers resignation.
The second-grade class, for kids aged between seven and eight, had been asked to solve as many subtraction problems in three minutes as they could.
When marking the work, the teacher, who has been named locally as Alyssa Rupp Bohenek, wrote: "Absolutely pathetic he answered 13 in 3 min! Sad.” The post went viral and has sparked an online campaign calling for the teacher to be fired. The ‘Petition to fire Alyssa Rupp Bohenek from the Valley View school district’ has now attracted more than 16,000 signatures on Change.org.
The school board is now understood to be investigating.
