BEAUFORT – A science teacher at Battery Creek High School was placed on paid administrative leave Monday after authorities say he shot a foam dart from a plastic Nerf gun at a student.
The mother of the 14-year-old girl who was hit with the dart said she wanted to pursue assault charges against Jeffery Baker, 29, according to a Beaufort County Sheriff’s Department report.
Reports indicate the teacher fired a foam dart from the toy gun toward a group of students who were talking and laughing in his classroom. More… Discount Magazine SubscriptionsDiscount Cigarettes & TobaccoNutty News MarketplaceApple iTunes

    If I was that teacher I would tell them to take this job and shove it and go out and get a real job.

    I think this is one of Obama’s people looking for some money from the school while they wait for money from Obama.

    seriously…is this really in the news? are we really to this point? when did spanking a child become child abuse…i was spanked and i turned out fine! maybe if this child would have been spanked she would know how do behave in a classroom and not be a big baby when she gets it by a PIECE OF FOAM!! he just hit her with foam, why doesn’t she get charged for slapping him?

    teach your kids some manners at home, and this would not happen.

    Oh well, it’s sue happy USA, she’d found something to whine about.

    when i was in high school my science teacher would throw empty plastic coke bottles at us .. no harm.

    i hope the student is charged with assault and expelled for slapping the teacher

    I think the mom should be charged for wasting the states time over this.

    HERE’S A SUPRISE FOR YOU…THIS IS AN BLACK NEIGHBORHOOD AND MAINLY BLACK SCHOOL!! Really, they wonder why they can’t get good teachers in these areas. No doubt the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree…but not to worry…she’ll be knocked up and out of school soon (another 1-2 years) and then you and I the tax payer will have to deal with it. If I was the teacher I would take my leave and keep a leavin’!

    The funniest thing here is, If it had been a real gun and someone got killed it would be mums the word but if a peice of foam hit a kid because the teacher couldnt get them to pay attention then heads better roll:) lol Please let me know if I am just dumb here but I just dont get it.

    Our teachers used to throw erasers, desks and books at us. And you used to get beat with a big wooden paddle & then got to sign your name to the same paddle afterwards. Guess nowadays it would be child abuse & all the class would get counseling.
    Todays kids are wimps & their parents are spineless twits.

    Maybe, but when a kid cannot bring a plastic knife in their lunch boxes to use for their lunches they get expeled. As much as I hate zero tolerance BS, serves the teacher right. Lead by example and not do as I say not as I do liberal crap.

    If you are going to hold the kids accountable for their actions, so too hold the teachers. This includes nerf guns.

    my school allows plastic knives. No idea what your talking about. Our schol even puts plastic knives with the spork and knapkin. also, the teacher should go find a better job teaching where he doesn’t get whined at and sued when he hits people with foam
