I don't think the above responds to this at all. For one thing, once you get in a fight at school, you have to get in more fights--everybody wants to rank against the guy who beat the other guy. It's very similar to having a problem with one teacher--suddenly they are all finding faults with you. I did both of these things, one year. Plus, you can't go around fighting girls, but shouldn't have to put up with the needling malevolence that they sometimes get together in, perhaps as an expression of... well who knows--but anyone would prefer a fight. At least, the school should not condone and culture that stuff, which is what this teacher has done.
Many adults seem to have remarkably childish ideas about these things. It's depressing.
