WARSAW, Ind. (AP) — A Warsaw, Indiana teacher faces a battery charge after she allegedly caused an 8-year-old student to repeatedly fall down while disciplining the child. Fifty-eight-year-old Debra Wiley was arrested Friday at Harrison Elementary School in Warsaw. According to court documents, Wiley was caught on camera forcibly trying to make the child standing against a wall sit down. She allegedly grabbed the youngster's ankles, repeatedly causing the child to fall, dragged the student once and used her body weight to hold the youngster down.

I miss my retired teacher friends. We meet once a month for breakfast to tell war stories, solve the problems of the world, and revel in our good fortune at having gotten out alive. We met last on March 6, right before the pandemic began to hit home.

Two months later, someone who looks like my wife, but with longer hair, flips channels between The Price is Right and the governor of New York. Andrew Cuomo seems like maybe he’d be a good teacher. Drew Carey, not so much.

I try to stay calm.

Maybe that’s a mistake.

UPDATE:   

GARY, Ind. (AP) — A school district in northwestern Indiana says it's seeking to fire a principal after a special needs teacher awarded an 11-year-old autistic student a trophy naming him the "most annoying male" of the school year.

On the final day of the legislative session, a bill that would have funded specialized teacher firearm training is likely dead, according to its author.

The sticking point for lawmakers: an amendment that makes the training a requirement for school districts that chose to arm teachers.  

When originally written, the bill provided state funding for the optional 39.5-hour teacher firearm training. A handful of Indiana school districts already have chosen give staff access to firearms and provide training, such as Jay County Schools. 

When it comes to measuring and rating teachers, Indiana school districts vary widely in their practices. Yet, for the past three years almost all Indiana educators have been rated effective.
