Who is Going to Stand Up For Bullied Teachers?

October 6, 2012

No student would ever dare spike a teacher’s drink if they felt the likely consequences outweighed the enjoyment factor.

I will gladly stick up for children in most cases, but when it comes to assaults or intimidation against teachers or fellow students I draw the line. Teachers must be supported and treated with respect from top down. Any student found spiking a teacher’s drink (depending on the child’s age) has no place in that classroom … ever!

A North Carolina teacher says her student “spiked her coffee with butt-enhancing pills.”

According to WBTV, 61-year-old Ellen Vick, a teacher at Independence High School in Charlotte, N.C., told police Monday that a student put a “butt-enhancing” drug in her coffee during class.

Investigators say the drug was “GluteBoost,” a supplement that claims to plump up one’s derriere.

As WCNC notes: “One month’s supply with of GluteBoost sells for $50 on the company’s website. The pills [claim to] use “natural supplements that will enhance your butt size.

Police are reportedly still investigating the incident, and there have not been any arrests. The student, however, is said to have been “disciplined according to the district code of conduct,” WBTV reports.

This is not the first time that a student has gotten into hot water for spiking a teacher’s beverage.

According to the Knoxville News Sentinel, three eighth-graders reportedly spiked a teacher’s soft drink with Germ-X hand sanitizer in 2008.

And last May, a high school student in California allegedly “slipped dry erase cleaning fluid and bleach into her teacher’s coffee mug when she wasn’t looking,” NBC News reports.
