Nutter Fort Primary Witch Hunt
Yvonne Loar

I did go back and review the video after you wrote your thoughtful article. The boy is NOT dressed as a turkey. If you look at the child in front of him, he is wearing the same head piece, but this boy pulled the brown collar part up around his head so that is why people thought he was a turkey. To be honest, if it was supposed to be a turkey costume, you would have to assume the costuming was terrible! The fact that everyone is just running with the “he was a turkey” and we should send him turkey pictures, etc. just shows that people are assuming things. I do think that the teacher was abrupt and that perhaps there was a better way to handle things, but you are correct, this is painting her as a terrible person, without people knowing all the facts. If I had a child at this school, I wouldn’t want them to be in this video and I would feel that it was an invasion of their privacy to spread it across the internet. There are a lot of factors going on here but the teacher was just tarred and feathered without giving a chance to try to explain anything.
