'That's torture.' Boy gets second-degree burns from PE class discipline, Texas mom says

A mom in Texas says her son and some classmates were forced to do “bear crawls” on a hot track after they tried to get out of running by hiding in the shade during a physical education class, according to local reports.

The punishment burned the hands of the Anthony Aguirre Junior High students, according to KRIV.

Mother Wendy Alvarez says her own 12-year-old child has second-degree burns, KPRC reported.

“When I saw him, he had a big blister here, blisters forming on the palm,” she said, according to the Houston-based TV station.

1. Yep, as a Texan, this does not surprise me.

The ignorant hurtful, cruel and unusual tortures that coaches will invent are not rare things. There are good teachers who are also coaches, but having gone to school and worked beside them, my opinion of coaches is such that I am reluctant to call a good teacher, coach.

3. these 'people' don't belong in the school system

(although there is a certain element in American society that will defend them to the death) And sports is most often the rationale providing 'cover' for their sick psychology.

And, just by the way - I am not against punitive action or correction handed out to students that are jacking around, breaking the rules, etc., etc. Just of 'sickos' being in charge of molding character.
