    I haven't read any of the comments here yet.

    Having been a teacher, a couple of things come to mind:

    School personnel can be sued for putting their hands on a child, and can easily lose the suit and face personal repercussions.  If a school district is sensitive to this (i.e., if it's happened) they may have a policy that they will NOT touch a child.  Therefore, if a child is having a violent tantrum that could hurt others or him/herself, they may have a school policy to call police to deal with it.  So, I guess what I'm saying is the litigious nature of our society could be said to have caused the increased occurrances of police intervening with children's tantrums and other school-related discipline.

    Some children, even 6-year-olds, have specific disabilities that cause them to have extremely violent outbursts that could very severely harm another person or themselves.  It's not common, but it can happen.  Regardless of parenting.

    I think the teacher is probably in the wrong profession.
