Tragic story of a teacher

A story, covered primarily by bloggers, of the brutal death of a Nigerian school teacher named Christianah Oluwatoyin Olusase is quite shocking. It seems the original news source reporting it was the Compass Direct News. If this story is indeed fact, perhaps no other news source would cover it for fear of offending our muslim neighbors. Isn't that our normal approach?

In America...

Our own teachers are facing violence from students on a daily basis, in various parts of the country. I know good teachers who have changed careers because they were scared of some of the students they have faced on occasion. People that are studying to become educators show some apprehension because of what they have heard from other teachers.

Obviously not all children are bad, but there is a growing trend of total disrespect and worse, when it comes to authority figures.

As parents, we must be aware of our own behavior because our children will imitate what they see, not necessarily what they hear from us...
Let's be a right example for them in all things!

be well,
