Be careful whom you go off on -- anybody is liable to be carrying a recorder these days:
The parents of a New Albany kindergarten student who secretly recorded his teacher making what the parents say were abusive comments told their story to a national TV audience today.
Tabitha McMahan, mother of Gabe Ross, and J.R. Edwards, the boy's stepfather, were interviewed on Good Morning America about the teacher and the way their son was treated.
Parts of the recording that Gabe made in April when he went to his school, S. Ellen Jones Elementary in New Albany, with a digital recorder in his pocket were played during the broadcast.
At one point, a woman's voice can be heard describing a student as “ignorant, selfish, self-absorbed, the whole thing,” and also calling the student “pathetic.”
Teachers must be at or near the breaking point these days. There was also the Florida kindergarten teacher who had students vote on whether a 5-year-old with a form of autism should be allowed to stay in class.
