It might, if someone actually complained, except students usually don't. Here, depending on the school (and the size of the school, with smaller ones having more tightly knit teachers), the teachers tend to cover each other's asses when they make bad judgement calls and try to make light of whatever happened as if a student is exaggerating. When I was in elementary school, there was a teacher from England, with obvious anger issues. He had pretty much no patience, and he yelled at least as much

The first time I saw milk in bags, I was pretty puzzled... but more puzzling still, is why you can buy bags and cartons of "Homo Milk", as if writing "homogenized milk" takes too much work...

Dismissed for what? I doubt the teacher's intentions were to hit the student. That sounds like an overreaction to me. And the kid took it too hard, it's not insulting that what happened happened. Even if the kid broke something it'd be a funny story to tell.

Bagged milk is mostly in the eastern provinces. In Alberta we have it in cardboard cartons and plastic jugs. Apparently the bagged milk stays fresher longer and tastes way better.

The math teacher was just trying to prove that an apple hit vectorally at a bearing of 21 degrees to (op's face) with an acceleration of 12 cm/s that the apple will... Hit op and induce laughter.

He could have apologized later. And OP could have left out the apology to make his life look worse

I'm Canadian and I once had a teacher who hurled a stapler across the room, just missing the student who had pissed him off, and he wasn't fired. Then again, I did grow up in a pretty shady neighborhood so there probably weren't too many teachers willing to take his place.

I know right! They always cover for each other and then they act really nice in parent teacher conferences and make you look like the bad guy!

In Canada, teachers could get into trouble as simple as screaming at students, Let alone anything physical. As for bagged milk, I've only seen it in Eastern Canada, never seen any in Alberta

I would not recommend the bagged milk - once the bag is opened the milk is exposed to the air as there the bags aren't resealable. The milk starts to taste weird after a while especially if there's uncovered food in the fridge. I live in Nova Scotia and not all milk comes in bags, there's also jugs and cartoons of milk available.

That story reminds me of the my first day of geography class at high school. The teacher was giving us a lecture on how to behave properly for 45 minutes so I raised my hand and asked him "When are we going to start learning?" He then proceeded to pick my pencil case up and threw it across the room almost hitting someone in the face

That was highly inappropriate for the teacher to part take and condone laughter. Hope you are OK OP. =)

You know, this doesn't surprise me. I recently started a job as a temp and a lot of it involved interacting with teachers. You'd think those people would be model individuals, but sadly a lot of them are unintelligent assholes. Please report your teacher. No offense meant against the good teachers out there. Keep on being awesome.
