First we have a scam university running out of PUSD downtown. Then there is some sort of visa exchange program running out of Livermore. Are Trivalley University and this TVLC related?

Child cruelty is one of the worst thing happens in the country. Instead of being friendly and helpful for the children's people get cruel to them. Teachers are like their parents for children in school. But this news made me sad. Never insult students in front of others. They are so sensitive that they can take up any actions after the incident.

That is not child cruelty.

This charge does a dis service to what child cruelty really is.

Could have been better handled yes, teacher deserves punishment up to termination possibly, yes.

Kid cheats on hw and teacher calls him out, then kid runs away, teacher follows up, and gets kid back where he belongs....not child cruelty
