Im sure there is more to this story that we are not hearing. I;m sure this teacher didn't out of the blue make up a story on a great student. Like always, junior does no wrong.

And yes, kids are more out of control these days, but that blame lays solely on the parents. Kids aren't meant to be coddled and handed everything they want, and they*****sure aren't taught respect anymore. So asknot, before you condemn these kids that you despise so much (even though you supposedly work with them) maybe you should step back and look at the real problem...the baby boomer generation that has made them this way.

This teacher was not very smart to embellish comments this boy made. She had to know she was taking a big risk . Teaching is much hardet now , they put up with a lot more than ten or twenty years ago . But if you would risk your job to make up comments about an unruly student , then she should gave been looking for a different type if work even if she does not lose her job over this ,her standing in the school will go way down . Ask nit us right ? There are nasty bratty kids in the school system who get away with too much rotten behavior in the classroom . However this teacher was wrong to try and get back at the kid by making up and embellishing what happened .

My guess is this will never be solved, and if it is the teach will be found guilty of whatever, and get a slap on the wrist, while looking for a new profession! The world is going mad!

I like to finally see the idea of arresting for false report since that almost never happens. However, it doesn't look to me like she would be the kind to make something like that up and could have just misunderstood what she heard.

In this day it seems people want attention so much that they will do almost anything to get it. Sad.

Teachers are really starting to set a low example for the community.

I'm glad what appears to be a thorough investigation was completed and I hope the boy's parents pursue whatever legal means are available as well.

PAID LEAVE?!?! Are you kidding me?! This woman could have tarnished this kid's reputation for life, caused emotional stress to the other students, and many other indirect repercussions because she apparently had a grudge...and she's on PAID administrative leave?! Prime example of poor educators that need to be removed from our education system. At the very least, she should be fired, but with all the shootings and threats in recent years, I'd say the max sentence is appropriate. Use her as an example to some of these other deadbeat teachers that are milking the state teet. Teachers are supposed to be role models for our youth, and they need to be held to a higher standard when it comes to stuff like this.
