At my school, I'm on a swim team. Recently, things in the SWIMMING locker room have been getting broken or lost. The wrestling coach turns to us to accuse, and today for the second time he comes in yelling in a threatening manner. Today, he took it a step up.
He was *yelling* at one of the swimmers, in a harassing manner. Another swimmer asks what is wrong, and the coach replies "You know what the HELL is wrong, you liar!"
I walk in while he is still yelling, referring to us as "you damn swimmers." I then ask what is wrong. He (of course yelling) tells me that I'm lieing. Then I repeat myself, saying I don't know what is wrong. He then says "Oh, so you tryin' to be a tough guy!?". I say "No.". He says "A tough, eh?!". I say "Nope, but I don't know what's wrong". Then he replies, "I'll tell you what's wrong, you're a moron!" I say, "No, I'm not.". He continues to yell for a little bit, then leaves.
All of this is not just a case of "an annoying coach/teacher". He is yelling at us in a threatening and harassing manner for no reason. He has no reason to believe we are vandalizing the locker room.
1) Does anyone know an internet site that has wisconsin laws pertaining to verbal abuse in schools, or anything like that? I'm writing a letter to the athletic director, and principle, and want to make an impact. Thanks.
