A child is learning to write. Penmanship is a lost art in our digital, smiley icon world, but this youngster diligently works at it.
Despite being naturally left-handed, 4-year-old Zayde Sands was allegedly being forced to use his right hand by his teacher, and probably doing a botched job of his lettering as a result. Why was the teacher forcing a lefty to go righty? Check the next page – yes, you can “right” click:
I was left handed and was forced to switch to my right when I started school…I’m glad cause I can do stuff with both hands.
I used to be punished for using my left hand. Had my left hand tied behind me with a piece of venetian blind cord, also, had my hand beaten. Teacher said it was wrong to be left handed. I can’t begin to explain the trauma that child is going through and to think that its still going on. I would sue the c**p out of that teacher.
