This is a true story that happened 4 years ago to one of my students, he was a very shiny boy, he likes to study, love books and stories, and he had a very interesting ideas (he was 10 years old) but eventually he look like a street boy (sorry for this term but…) If you see him out side the school you will get scared: he dress like a gangster member, so every time he went to the library the librarian throw him out and tell him that this is not a place to play or to steal, But this is not our story; what I went to tell you is the Principal’s story with this kid; In our country at June (after the final exams) every school organize a big party to honor the best students, so pour Principal was in the military (you can imagine how he is gooooooooood with kids!!!), and one year this boy was selected as the “best student in the school” and the Principal of cause he’s the one who have to give him the present: so he said some words (The Principal) and than begun to award the students, when he arrive to the first place he look at me and told me :”this student is absent!” I wondered how he knew. After the ceremony is over and all the students awarded, the principal come to me and told me that he will resign!

Thank you;

I know that no one understood the story because I didn’t finish it yet:

At the ceremony day, our kid came to school alone (without his parents because he’s an orphan) so the principal throw him out of the school and told him “This day is only for students Not for such a Lingerer like you” after that he went back to school and start the ceremony when he look t the First Student file he saw his picture and he know what he did, so he can’t resist the pressure of throwing a kid in his DAY; and he resigned!

I hope every body post comments on this true story, I know it seems sad but it make our kid stronger.

Thank you (this time for real);

Hi Ayoubmarket,

I read the story and how sad. Making the boy stronger may be a good thing but gee I can think of better ways of doing that. To be an orphan is bad enough but to be treated in such a way is awful. There is no reason to judge someone beause of the way they look.


I try to teach my kids this all the time. Maybe he was dressed that way due to the fact he didn’t have the finances to get better clothes. Or maybe he wanted to dress that way because he was expressing himself. Of course having a military principle and the boy looking like a street kid was reason for a clash.

You state the boy is bright and a good student with great ideas. Although it made him stronger it could have turned for the worse and made him very rebellious and hate school period. Is he still a good student willing to learn?


I have to say I am glad the guy resigned. Oh, I can picture myself if that was one of my boys and they were treated that way or if I had even seen this child treated that way..eeks.


 

Thanks, Debby

I really feel sorry and bad for the kid. Growing up poor should not be a hindrance in being a bright and smart person. Will always remember that ” We cannot judge a book by it’s cover”. I hope the principal by now learn his lessons from it. He doesn’t think of other person’s feeling.

I don’t know if resigning is a good move by the principal. I mean for me, he could have done more for the child if he stayed in his position. Of course, asking an apology from the child is out of the question. But for me, the principal resigned from his post beacuse of sheer humiliation for what he did. And so what did the boy get from this? But then again, there’s always two sides of a story. Who knows? Maybe this principal in the end adopted the child? That would really make him a great person. This story should serve as a reminder for us that every child in this world has rights and deserves only the best from adults like us.

I’m glad the principal resigned. The other impoverished students will be spared from his poor judgement.

I wonder if this person kept teaching? I would hate to see him with other kids out there.
