(Newser) – Lots of schools are using iPads and other gizmos in the classroom, but now a few downsides are surfacing. Widespread hacking might be expected, but teacher assault by a 9-year-old? The Smoking Gun reports that police in Rock Hill, South Carolina, were summoned when a boy erupted into a rage after his 26-year-old female teacher confiscated his iPad in class. After he started to flip chairs, the teacher escorted him into the hallway, where he proceeded to repeatedly stomp her foot, leaving it bruised and swollen. It took four adults to restrain the youth, notes the State. Police released him into the custody of his mother instead of arresting him.

Let's see how fast these parents can try to work up a law suit against the teacher. I'll bet half the time they don't even know where their kid is or what he's doing.

I think the teacher showed great restraint in not having him charged with assault and battery, and I also think I would require his parents to come into my classroom every week for follow-up visits or their kid would fail my class.

Punk ass little kids we are raising these days. Just a generation ago my teacher would have clamped my neck to the wall so hard my eyes would have bugged out if I tried that shit. "Spare the rod and spoil the child"
