Teacher writes ‘absolutely pathetic’ on 7-year-old’s math paper

Dad’s post calling his son’s teacher out over math quiz has gone viral with many calling for the teacher to be fired.

Kamdyn Piland returned his math quiz with the words “absolutely pathetic” written across it.

The second grader showed his dad the paper he also said he answered 13 questions in three minutes with a sad face drawn on it.

Dad Chris talked to the teacher about how this remark was supposed to support his boy, and the teacher said, “I’m sorry you feel this way,” according to Chris.

So Chris went to Facebook and called the teacher out. “My son Kamdyn’s teacher has been so rude to him and myself all year he comes home with this and I am beyond frustrated that someone would write this on a child’s work such great motivation.”

Kamdyn told reporters, “She made me really sad and upset. I was really mad. And (it was) really mean to do.”

Chris’s post in April last year was viral with more than 1,000 comments from people, many surprised by the teacher ‘s comments, and others were sidelined by the teacher’s demand for a 7-year-old results.

The petition calling for the teacher to be fired gained more than 20,000 signatures.
