A teacher in Florida is under investigation after a parent found that she’d written ‘WTF is this?’ on a child’s homework.
The science tutor had written the comment, which is short for What the f***, at Rutherford High School in Florida’s Bay County.
“It wasn't anything about not getting the credit, it was more so the language…that was very inappropriate and not acceptable for a teacher whatsoever," said Melinda Smith, whose son received the feedback.
“I think for sure she needs to be reprimanded. I believe that something should be placed in her file.”
Details about the son, like his name and age, have not been revealed, and Coy Pilson, the school’s principle said the school is taking action.
“Once we were notified, I notified district officials and our HR has been involved and they're currently investigating the situation," he told regional TV station WJHG.
He added that the incident was out of character for the teacher in question.
“She was apologetic and it was a mistake on her part. All of the teachers at Rutherford High School are caring, loving teachers and we're also human and so, we make mistakes.
But we understand that we are called to a high professional standard and when we make mistakes, we try to correct those mistakes and move forward.
