For us, we had parents at home and when we got to school the teachers became the parents. We obeyed or else. Then we got home and were punished again.

The probably didn't know what to do. It's not like it would be easy for a kid to get out of trouble if they put their hands on their teacher. They did eventually pull her away and stand so that he couldn't pull on her anymore.

IT is the same behavior that adults sometimes display at times when there is an altercation. Once the first person steps in, then others usually follow and act.

Heck why even have teachers there to begin with if the kids are going to decide what they will and wont do?

Children do not make the rules.
What if the real reason she didn't want to get in the pool was because she had her period? Young girls don't always use internal protection and you really don't need to be in the pool in that scenerio.

I remember lying about why I didn't want to get in the pool at that age.

Children are people too. If someone did that to my kid, I'd be the one getting arrested.
