I don’t understand why some teachers just won’t listen to reason…
And here’s another story from Reddit’s “Am I the A**hole?” page that is going to make you shake your head…
Take a look and see what happened…
AITA for getting a teacher fired when she wouldn’t let my daughter eat in class?
“My (47F) daughter (13F) is type 1 diabetic and sometimes hypoglycemic. Due to this, we set up a 504 that says she can eat a snack in class whenever needed, along with other accommodations.
Anyways, at one point one of her teachers, who is apparently a new teacher, denies her a snack while hypoglycemic. She nearly passes out but in the next class she is in, the teacher has enough common sense to let her eat a snack before passing out at school.
When she told me, I immediately called the teacher. When she called back, I lectured her and told her that she needed to let my daughter eat a snack when needed. She says snacks aren’t allowed in class but I tell her that due to my daughter’s 504 she is legally required to give my daughter an exception to that rule, and recommended she give it another read.
Before hanging up, I tell her that if she does this again I will contact the principal and let him know. I recorded this call on my husband’s phone by the way.
A month goes by and the same thing happens again. I request a meeting with the principal and my husband plays back the call between me and the teacher. I tell him she has done this twice and needs to have a talk with her.
Turns out, he actually fired her for ADA violations. How do I know? I ran into her at publix. She told me that it’s my fault I got her fired over “some stupid snacks” and I need to stop raising an entitled brat. Instead of arguing back I just walked away.
Was I really TA? Did I actually go too far?”
And here’s how Reddit users reacted to this story.
This person pointed out that a 504 education plan is legally binding. No questions asked.
Another Reddit user said that people in the past fought hard to make sure that law passed and this teacher should be ashamed for acting this way.
This person said that this woman had to be fired because a bad situation might have happened under her watch because of the way she acted.
And this individual said that this teacher is lucky she didn’t get sued for her reckless actions.
