San Diego teen Jade Ray wanted to join her school choir as it delivered singing grams on Valentine's Day. But what Jade said she got instead was a swift kick in the rear end from her choir teacher, who also allegedly called her "ugly" and a "brat." The Mount Miguel High School freshman says in a $75,000 San Diego County Superior Court lawsuit that she wanted to join the school choir as it delivered singing grams on Valentine's Day.

The suit claims she was humiliated and psychologically scarred after Hargett's alleged remarks. "I was embarrassed because the whole class was watching and laughing at me,"

Jade's parents said she was so upset over the incident that she never returned to Mount Miguel High School and has since enrolled in a new school. "She was in the office crying, and I just couldn't believe a teacher would literally kick her like that," her father, James Ray.

    I see a lot of people call her ugly. It doesn't matter if she is ugly no kid should be called that especially in front of a whole class. To get back at me people would call me ugly and shit that hurt my self-esteem so much it's not even funny. It doesn't matter if she is not pretty he shouldn't have called her that. And kicking her in the butt asault right there plain and simple. I think maybe sue for the asault but not as high as she wants it. Now as for the teacher he is a true ass and should be fired immediatly.

    I'm sorry but i think it's rude to tell someone they are ugly.
    If you call someone ugly then you must be stupid. It doesn't matter what they look like on the outside, the only thing that does is what they are on the inside.

    WTF is wrong with teachers at the moment?
    A friend is going through some really horrible stuff because of a teacher at the moment, that teacher that raped that boy, now this?
    Are we just employing anyone now?
    Go Jade. That was humiliating, and teachers are supposed to reprimand kids for that kind of stuff. That person should not be a teacher.

    It's completely inappropriate, immature, and unprofessional for a teacher to say something like that. Come on, people. The issue isn't whether it's true or not.... that's just a really cruel thing to say, to anyone. The teacher needs to be a mediator, far more mature than the students. They should never resort to name-calling like that!

    if you can sue for name calling, I'm definately going to sue the Catholic Church and any christian that calls me a sinner for one of the following, being gay, being atheist, having sex, smoking, drinking, eating, sleeping, voting, walking, talking, or whatever else they have decided is a sin to them.

    Oh, and really get a job!

    What a crybaby, seriously she got insulted/made fun of by a teacher. Why does she deserve 75,000 dollars? And now she nationally humiliates herself by making this a lawsuit. "BOO-HOO my teacher called me ugly and kicked me hard enough for me to barely feel it, i think i am going to sue you because you hurt my feelings."

    More power to the girl! Teacher ever kicked me in the ass I would have beat their ass down and called it self defense. But that teacher had no right to kick her and call her ugly. One the teacher should have been arrested for assault and child endangerment, Two teacher needs to be fired and Three the teacher and school district needs to be sued for the teachers actions.

    Again this is the kind of unnecessary bullshit that is bringing America down. All the dumbass laws are catching up with the US and I think it's funny.

    And I'm also sure that it must have been a hate crime too, that's gotta be worth another couple thousand, right? Pathetic.

    that she should sue her teacher.... teachers think that just because they have to deal with kids all day that gives them the right to treat them as they please... which includes calling them names and treating them unfairly once when i was in high school a teacher told me "my parents waisted there sperm, and if she was my parent she wouldnt want me" all because i wasnt listening to her. so i say sue the pants off that women!!

    I say a lawsuit is going to far. However....the teacher acted unprofessionally. It is possible she is a royal brat, but the teacher has no grounds commenting EVER on whether someone is 'ugly' or not. If she was a brat, then the teacher could have said to her privately that based on her behavior (without saying 'brat') he did not think it was justified having her participate in that activity. That would have been the professional way to handle it. I understand teachers are overloaded by our school system, underpaid for a horrendous job, and get no support from the parents or hte administration, but good night! That had to be him blowing a gasket out of being fed up with something.

    People are always using the "I'll sue you" line when things don't go their way. I do agree that the teacher was in the wrong for saying that. I would never say that to a student, even if I think it...it is wrong to let it come out of my mouth. However, I think some other action could be taken other than firing and suing.

    ugly can ALSO mean having a bad additude so then and i read the teacher also called her a brat and that she wanted to join the choir while they were delivering singing grams on valentines day so then it seems that she walked in while they were singing so then she really must have been ACTING ugly.oh yea i remember in 7th grade my science teacher called a student ugly everyone was laughing it was funny and the girl's attitude WAS bad.but netherless that IS embarrising but she really is making a big deal out of it and the kick in the butt trhe teacher should get fired for that there was no need for that singing acting netherless embarrising deal kick butt trhe teacher fired

    unfortunately people have the right to their opinions, and the freedom to speak. however her parents might have the right to sue the teacher for child abuse. they should also sue the school board for child endangerment, for allowing the teacher to continue teaching.
