Would Teachers Get Away With It Nowadays

My daughter often asks me what my teachers were like when I was at school and like any good dad I try to make it humourous when describing what some of my old lot were like. The one that always jumps to mind was a Mr Evans, a PE teacher with a firery Welsh temper. Actually, he was a great person to be around and really threw himself into every sport he was attempting to get you take part in but if you mucked up you were always called a SPACO!!

Drop a catch playing cricket - 'Grouty you SPACO!! Are there holes in those hands boy'
Miss a open goal playing football - 'Grouty you SPACO!! Those posts not big enough for you'
Fluff a pass in rugby - 'Grouty you SPACO!! Are you blind to that Spaco to the right of you'

You get the general picture. We were never offended by these outbursts and looking back it was nothing more than just having a bit of a laugh at your own expense but would a teacher ever get away with it now.

Do tell.
