What would you do in this situation if this was your kid?  I can tell right now that this would be "nothing" back in the day in GF!  Some of Grand Forks' most "beloved" teachers used to whack kids in the back with brooms, smash heads into lockers, snap their fingers into skulls, etc.  I know this, because I lived it.  Don't get me wrong, most of the time they were dealing with unruly children...But no kid deserves to be roughed up like that.
