Disturbing YouTube videos show students talking about lies they told to get their teachers fired

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.

According to KRIV’s report, many teachers are eventually cleared in court of the accusations, but the damaging effects are hard to recover from.

“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.

    This is all smarmy. No one is safe. Don’t leave your house in the morning; someone is scheming to hurt you in some way. It almost makes me glad that I’m disabled and mostly stay home, talking to friends on the internet, doing what I can around the house, and waiting until the next times my assistant comes to work and we can chat. No one’s safe. Except my assistant; I take care of my people. I hope there are millions just like me and no one to get n the road.

    As bad as this is, I didn’t hear them confessing to making up evidence against the teacher, only secretly recording her. Ultimately the principal is responsible for the decision. If he/she is paying more attention to students than to his teaching staff, then the investigation should begin there, I think. (Perhaps these kids are taking credit for something that had very little to do with them.)
    Still, it IS disturbing to hear them speaking about firing a teacher simply because she asked them to do work. But then isn’t the message we have been sending young people for a couple of decades now?

    If they know who these kids are, I would donate to a fund for the teacher to sue the kids and their family. They described a classroom management system that many teachers use. These kids probably break rule after rule and disrupt the class, and their stupid parents think they are angels. I feel sorry for the teachers who will have them when they are teenagers.
