Verbal Abuse Of Children

Why is it that teachers think they can get away with verbally or even physically abusing the children they are supposed to be teaching?

Case in point: the teacher in North Carolina who writes "loser" on a student's test paper.

I am a person who was also verbally abused by some of my teachers in school. Result: now I want to beat down any teacher who does that to any other student or maybe just shoot them to put them out of their misery.

After all 'It takes one to know one' is a cliche phrase for a reason, so I guess I really want to know who wants a loser teaching their children (can I get a show of hands)? This also reminds me of another cliche phrase: 'Those who can... do. Those who can't teach.'
