Troubling video has surfaced of students saying they’ve fabricated stories to get teachers who didn’t like them fired.
Houston’s KRIV-TV recently conducted an investigation and found an alarming number of YouTube videos featuring students describing what they’ve done to frame their teachers.
“So, we’re going to tell you guys about how we got our first-grade teacher fired,” says a young boy in one of the videos posted to YouTube a year ago.
“What first happened is we got the suckiest teacher ever,” the other boy said. “I forgot her name … but she’s gone.”
We just kept going to the principal’s office and telling her [the teacher] was harassing us.”
One of the boys went on to reveal that they eventually told their parents, resulting in formal reports being filed. They also even claimed to have hidden cameras on their clothes to capture the alleged harassment.
“We got her pretty good but they said we didn’t show that much,” the boy said.
“We gave her a lot for her to handle,” the boys said wondering if they really got her fired or if she quit.
“I don’t think at the age those students are they realize they can ruin a person’s home life, their family often turns on them, they ruin their career, they ruin their reputation in the community,” said Gayle Fallon, president of the Houston Federation of Teachers.
