Danish media have shown this video of a school teacher dragging a girl to the pool to get her head under water.
She had been swimming but refused to get her head under water because her hair had been done for an evening event.
I have to say with years of experience in swimming as well as coaching:
This girl had no business in this swim-class. You have to shower before you go to the pool for hygienic reasons. Your hair has to be wet or you have to wear a swim cab. If this girl would not shower then send her down to the office so they can phone home to the parents and get the matter solved. Of course there are parents who make these kinds of poorly planned agreements with their children and hairdressers. They have to accept that they will have to bear the blame by the school administration instead of their child.
There is no excuse for the teacher. When he spotted without wet hair or a cab covering her hair he should have sent her away from the pool instead of dragging this poor girl to the pool and pollutes the water with all those chemical hair-products hairdressers use today. What about the health of the other students? He really lost his mind. He needs to be fired – not for dragging the girl which is an offense in its self. He jeopardized the health of the other students by putting her chemical infected hair into the water.
