Mom rages after teacher ‘shames’ son by giving him ‘zero price’ in class

A mother has shared her son’s excitement and her own outrage after he was “shamed” by his teacher at school when she presented him with an award called The Zero Award.


Teachers all have their own methods and styles of inspiring the younger generation – but not everyone agrees with their approach.

A mother was recently furious after a teacher at her son’s school allegedly “shamed” the teenager by giving him a “Zero Award” in class.

Patricia Buckley, who lives in Leake County, Mississippi, knew something was wrong with her child the moment she picked up 14-year-old Bradley from school.

Talking to the Mississippi TV station WAPTShe described him as “balled up like he was embarrassed” as he got into her car.

After asking what was going on, the parent soon found out he’d been presented with a “terrible” award.

Bradley’s teacher had given him a certificate that read, “The ‘Zero’ award. It’s impossible to be me. Don’t try. You will never find a solution.”

The youngster admits the situation has made him “sad”.

He said, “I was sad and didn’t want to give it to her.”

Angry on behalf of her son, Patricia called the school office to find out more about the award and why.

“I think it was so awful for him to get that award,” she told the TV network.

“I will do what I can to ensure that this never happens again. Not just for Bradley, but for every kid.”

She added that she’s spoken to her Leake County principal several times but hasn’t heard any solutions yet.

Her son wants to return to school, but she considers enrolling Bradley elsewhere after the incident.

According to the network, it was the teacher’s first year of training.
