Why doesn't a hateful, ignorant, malicious.article concerning bullying from SC shock me?
To make matters worse, the teacher is still employeed.....Even for SC, this is disgusting.

This breaks my heart. Children are so sensitive and to have an adult authority figure behave in this manner is inexcusable. That teacher should have been dismissed immediately.

It's bad enough when kids bully you, but when a moron (teacher) does it that's uncalled for. He should have been fired & shame on the school.

It could well be other(s) have been bullied by the same person, in and away school!
It usually is a pattern, not always confined to a single person.
The person needs therapy, before being allowed to subject any more children to verbal and emotional abuse.
This has been under reported for too many years.
Thanks for posting.

Horrible. The classroom was full of other kids who witnessed the teacher's verbal abuse. I hope they will be called to testify at the trial.

What a horrible waste of space. This teacher should have been fired immediately. No wonder kids learn to be bullied, when learning how by this excuse for a teacher. The teacher needs to keep personal opinions and hate to him/herself.

Alan Ingram does not deserve to be called a teacher never mind still keeping his job ! He should be sacked immediately and banned from ever teaching again for his insensitive bullying of this young man,who there but for the grace of God called have killed himself because of Ingram.

If a teacher, healthcare provider, or other professional cannot be at least neutral, then that person shouldn't have that job. Fire this teacher immediately.

What a bigoted, malicious jerk. He is a disgrace to teaching. I'd be ashamed to know him. He should never be allowed to teach again. Homophobic jerk.

Funny, doesn't ay Ingram was put on leave pending the trial outcome...he wasn't outright fired...This makes me feel that he has the school's permission to bully. What about withholding the school's federal funds until the teacher is fired??

This so-called educator has simply educated everyone he has been in contact with that he is an ignorant, homophobic asshole, and should be fired, arrested and never let anywhere near children again!

This is beyond sad and cruel. This poor excuse for a human being and let alone a teacher should be thrown in prison for quite some time and enjoy the "joy" of being someone's "bitch". He has no right to bully any child regardless of his or her sex orientation.

This is a twisted hairball ; he should have been charged before this happened ... : as A Principal.. I would have fire him at first hearing.. NOW .. well as they say in Proverbs .. the tongue of a fool brings on blows... his will come ..surely something will fill in this vacuous hole in humanity.. God help him.

Unfortunately the schools ignore the bullying , especially when it is their own staff. My son was manhandled two days in a row and the school denies it even happened. At least they used to. Thank goodness for websites like this and youtube. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2dzVblb6Tbw

Education facilities?...these are just holding pens for the hormonally supercharged and super IQ types to be separated from the future burger flippers who will spend the rest of their useless lives diving into mud holes and shooting anything legal or not (self defense).. between 6 packs...this is a farce... not an education system...writing novels like ..Huntin the last buffalo...
