    Theres a new teacher in my school, and she teaches me Citizenship because I've done both English lang & lit early and got straight A's. However, she is perhaps one of the most conniving women you could ever meet. She has already given me 3 detentions; 1 on Monday and 2 today (a 15 minute one during break time, and a 30 minute one after school). I have noticed that she constanly picks on me after I had asked her if the subject is compulsory, she was like ''IS SCHOOL COMPULSORY? WELL SO IS THIS''. Not at all true. I'd rather do early English A level as we were told we might do by my former English teacher (Who I deeply miss). She suggested to me and my friend that we might have behaviour problems...what for 'talking'? It like who the hell are you to tell me that in my last year of secondary school? No other teacher had ever considered me to have behavioural problems because I dont. I am a Head girl for goodness sakes! Never had a fight, never been excluded or sent to a 'cooler room'.

    I need to report her to a higher member of staff but I am out of luck because she is an assistant headteacher. I am going mad...what can I do?
    Wow, this is so very very easy. If she gives you detention, just don't show up. Don't show up to any of them. Just ignore her.

    Write a very nice formal letter without any anger/ frustration or haste to the headmaster/ headmistress or whoever is in charge. Spend a while writing it, making sure that it's no more than 500 words long at the most.

    Over the next week check it once a day spending about 20 minutes just making it better, removing any obvious anger in it.

    Outline what has happened clearly and concisely and explain that no other teachers have had a problem with you ever, and that you have taken a subject early and achieved an A grade. If you haven't had any detentions in school apart from this then say so. If you haven't had any detentions over the last year then mention this instead.

    Suggest an alternative plan which you would prefer to do and state that you have a real problem with this new teacher and think she is being completely unreasonable.

    Alternatively: get your parents in to make a formal complaint about her.

    Start with something like:

    Dear <name of head>,

    I wish to make a formal complaint about a member of the teaching staff at <insert name of school>.

    Mention that you expect an apology in writing and expect this to be resolved quickly and satisfactorily and should it not be you will take it to the governors.

    I call ********, I was punished for things I didn't do through out school. I was punished for things I did as well as that obviously, I'm not saying I was perfect, but I was constantly punished-by idiotic teachers on power trips.

    As for the whole law thing, have you never seen ANY police brutallity? And do you think that the laws always make sense?
    Such an idiotic post.

    The headteacher will not be happy about having his or her time wasted by a student who cannot accept responsibility for her own disruptive behaviour and who is trying to undermine the authority of someone the headteacher personally chose to appoint to the leadership group. I would advise the OP not to fight this particular battle. If the OP came to me with a frivolous complaint like this, I would invite her parents in for a chat and make it quite clear to them they are welcome to find another school for their daughter if she is unwilling to accept his or her discipline policy.
    Well, it goes back to my post about whether the teacher really is acting reasonably or not. I think if it's a genuine issue it ought to be discussed and resolved by one or both parties changing their behaviour.

    Headteachers have better things to do than waste time on trivial matters like this. I am completely serious when I say every hour spent dealing with this sort of nonsense means that students who actually need guidance or protection cannot get the help they deserve. I do not use the word protection lightly.

    There[no apostrophe]s a new teacher in my school,[why is this comma here?] and she teaches me Citizenship because I've done both English lang & lit early and got straight A's. However, she is perhaps one of the most conniving women you could ever meet. She has already given me 3 detentions;[try a colon next time] 1 on Monday and 2 today (a 15 minute one during break time, and a 30 minute one after school). I have noticed that she constanly picks on me after I had asked her if the subject is compulsory, she was like ''IS SCHOOL COMPULSORY? WELL SO IS THIS''.[this full stop belongs within the quotation marks] Not at all true[this belongs in a full sentence]. I'd rather do early English A level as we were told we might do by my former English teacher (Who I deeply miss). She suggested to me and my friend that we might have behaviour problems...[why is this ellipsis here?]what for 'talking'? It like [try "it's"] [no quotation marks to denote hypothetical quote]who the hell are you to tell me that in my last year of secondary school? No other teacher had ever considered me to have behavioural problems because I dont. I am a Head girl for goodness sakes[*for goodness' sake - goodness cannot have more than one sake and, since it does have a sake, use the possessive apostrophe. Apostrophes are your friends.]! Never had a fight, never been excluded or sent to a 'cooler room'.

    I need to report her to a higher member of staff but I am out of luck because she is an assistant headteacher. I am going mad...what can I do?

    I do feel sorry for you because you do sound like someone who doesn't make trouble and is now stuck doing a subject you see having no relevance to you when there are better things you could be doing, i had the same thing at gcse and an annoying teacher to go with it. They way i got round it was arguing with him but in such a tactful resperctful way he couldn't get me done for it. In the end he was driven to taking the mick outta me infront of the class, he then realised what he had done and took me outsdide and apologised. After that id didn't get any trouble from him and he treated me better than other people. So you could always try something like that.

    Well, I think you've essentially got to grin and bear it. I've been in a very similar situation, with a new teacher; you've got to remember that they're on the prowl for people who are going to be disruptive; that's why they massively overpunish people initially.

    You've got two real choices.

    1) Try and ingratiate yourself with the teacher, even if you don't want to, by giving her no excuse to punish.

    2) continue as things are and take the punishment.

    I'm not denying that some people are ridiculous and unfair, and that citizenship is a waste of time compared to English A Level, but there's no way you'll ever succeed in reporting her or changing her behaviour; it'll probably make things worse.
    Try this. But if things do get worse then i would suggest seeing your head of year or someone.

    I had a maths teacher like that once.

    I was given my first ever and last detention by him and I still hold a grudge.

    Just get on with it. Try and pretend to get on with her.

    If she keeps carrying on tell your parents and complain.

    They might change your class.

    Goodness, do you realise how heated the subject is? Don't you understand that Citizenship provokes a lot of thoughts which you want to share? I wasn't off task or anything. Its just that she doesn't allow open class discussions, something which is rather important in such a subject!

    Its true. If you could ask the whole class! Girls AND boys! This has never occurred with any other teacher before!
