A Florida high school teacher is in a bit of hot water after her comments on a homework assignment enraged the kids mom. Though the students identity was not released, the mom's was and Melinda Smith says she was shocked when her son showed her his science homework with the comment: “WTF is this? absolutely no credit” written on top.
“[I]t wasn’t anything about not getting the credit, it was more so the language about the writing to students, that was very inappropriate and not acceptable for a teacher whatsoever.”
The student attends Rutherford High School in Panama City. Principal Coy Pilson said school officials have been notified of the situation and are conducting an investigation. He also said he had spoken with the teacher and she has apologized.
Smith thinks that the teacher should be “reprimanded" but it's unclear if further action will be taken.
We turned in some pretty questionable homework assignments in our day and don't think our parents would have been butt hurt if the teacher called us on it. Sure the teacher maybe should have used some other terminology in grading, but 'WTF' has pretty much become part of modern vernacular.
