Does IL require a teaching license for substitute teachers?

I agree with the kid; just ignore it.
When I was in school in the 1950s, the biggest bully in the building was the PE/Gym teacher.
I hated that man.
But, eventually, I learned that the garbage he dished out on a daily basis was HIS problem, not mine, and I ignored his B.S.

Has anyone reported the identity of the teacher yet? The school is keeping it private but everyone at the school must know, certainly some reporter has got it. This story should dominate the top results when someone googles that teachers name in the future.

It was easy to do when it didn't follow you wherever you went. "Just ignoring" was an option when a problem person could be left behind at the end of the school day and things kept in perspective. Times have changed. Bullying goes on 24-7 now, and through all sorts of media as well as in person. Or hadn't you heard?

That is the problem with the schools today, immature teachers who don't prevent bullying but participate in it.

When I was in high school in Lebanon there was a history teacher who was an absolute jerk, we had a really awkward kid in our class and he would pick on him just as bad as the other students. This teacher also runs for city council but I know enough to never vote for him.

Smartphones are a great thing. Authority figures in society that abuse their power cannot as easily get away with it anymore... which is good.
