In elementary, junior high, or high school, have you ever encountered or had a teacher or
teachers who you considered to be abusive?
Fortunately not in school,but during graduation I was surprised to see people who are not fit to be called teachers,they are a black mark because they were racist and abusive.
Oh yes. When I was in Primary a teacher used a ruler to try to get me to write with my right hand. She would hit me across the knuckles with the ruler whenever I reverted to using my left hand. One day I came home with bruised and heavily swollen knuckles. My mother sorted that teacher out and I was moved to another class. To this day I remain a lefty just like Errol Flynn.
Yes bad teachers exist. And I experience an injustice in high school.
To tell a short story there was a Biology teacher ,I was in her glass after lunch period,also I believe that was hers as well, She would come in give assignment to read some chapters then leave. We would not see her again until the next class day with the same missing act.
So report card period came and she gave most in her class F's I never got a f before, so my mother did not tolerate poor grades and I respected that.
So she requested a parent conference . It was in the principles office.
Never forget get it she claimed I never came to class, a lie ! She came but did not stay to teach her class,
So the principe ask me a question what biology my answer was not good enough !
So he explained it.
Next the principle went to all my classes even my hardest chemistry, geometry, and others my attendance was flawless .
So what he did was he decided to check on her classroom by intercome, he called her the first minutes of class ,she did not answer,gone!15 minutes later, no answer gone,45 minutes before the class bell ringed he came to the class gone no teacher.
The last I saw of that teacher was in the employment office years later.
Sad but these things happen.
And not to forget I was happy that those other teachers of mine kept good attendance records!

How do schools in America work?I've always wondered this, I hear about middle school and high school but what ages are they. In the UK we just have primary and secondary, and lets say year 8 in the UK wouldn't be the same age as 8th grade in the US.

I attended kindergarten in 1975 in a Deerlodge, MT. My teachers name was Mrs. Hart. How about you, where did you go to school? Pick whatever age you like.
