    The other day a teacher pulled a prank on one of his colleagues by suspending a 5-year-old by his belt loop on a coathook (the kid agreed and thought it was fun). Yes, it was stupid. But, I really don’t think the damage done justifies this:

    Imhotep Lubin has told his parents he is afraid to return to PS 279 in Canarsie and wants “revenge,” his dad said.

    Music teacher Jason Schoenberger, 24, has been charged with endangering the welfare of a child.

    “I see it as sheer contempt for the welfare of my child. This man has no value for my child’s life,” said Pierre Lubin, 35, a math teacher at a Manhattan high school.
