Teacher Makes 7-year-old Hit Himself

Postby sox 06 » Fri May 04, 2007 1:53 pm

This is just sick and ridiculous :-t
A music teacher who twice ordered a seven-year-old pupil to hit himself in the head with drum mallets will not return to the Parkway School District next year.

The incident happened on February Ninth in teacher Paul Provencio's music class at Carman Trails Elementary School in suburban St. Louis.

State officials say the 36-year-old teacher intended the head-banging as a lesson to Justin Barricklow about hitting the drums too hard.

The Missouri Department of Social Services investigated the case at the request of the boy's father, Scott Barricklow, who works as a groundskeeper for the Parkway district.

Provencio has since apologized. School officials called the incident "unprofessional and totally inappropriate."

Sad, but it also sounds like it may be blown out of proportion as well. :-?

Yeah I would be curious to what really happened. It could have gone mroe extreme both ways. But in all reality, it could have been closer to. "hey billy, don't hit the drums that hard, think about hitting yourself in the head, and hit the drums that hard."

Yeah, I am guessing it was further towards that than, "YOU IDIOT, THAT'S TOO HARD, GO SIT IN THE CORNER AND HIT YOUR HEAD!!!!!" :-b

This sounds ridiculous to me. Sounds like the teacher may have had some poor judgement in trying to make a point, but the kid most likely told his parents (as he should) and the parents overreacted without talking to the teacher. It's a short article with very little information, like if there were bruises or if the kid even thought it hurt. Or how many times he was asked to plunk himself in the noggin with the mallets.

All in all, poor judgement by the teacher, but quite possibly an overreaction by everyone else.

Exactly. Oh and don't let pictures fool you. Those mallets can be incredibly hard. I have been hit in the head with one before. !+)

That explains a lot.... :-b




And as a drummer, I can testify that those mallets look fluffy and soft, but they are NOT. :-D
