Chris criticized the teacher on Facebook. He wrote, “My son Kamdyn’s teacher has been so mean to him and me all year. He brings this home, and I am so angry that someone would write this on a child’s work. It’s great motivation.”
“She really made me sad and mad. I was very angry. And it was a very bad thing to do.”

More than 20,000 people have signed a petition calling for the teacher to be fired.
Another petition with just under 1,000 signatures wants her to keep her job. It says that what she did was wrong, but not something she should lose her job over.
In the comments section of Chris’s Facebook post, he said that he didn’t know how the school handled the situation, but that he had moved his child out of her class.
Chris said, “Maybe it will be taken seriously now, and it won’t happen to other teachers and students.”
