This is a great article and must read. With School Boards and Education Departments passing guidance, rules, regulations and laws preventing teachers from intervening or removing students from the classroom for altercations, property damage, verbal disruptions, what did these boards, departments, schools and disability lobbyists (aka advocates) think would happen.

Intervention is going to take place. Either teachers will be given the ability to intervene for common disciplinary problems, or law enforcement will be called.

A substitute teacher in Goldsboro is relieved of her duties following a fight that happened in her classroom and it was caught on camera.

School officials say this fight broke out on September 4th at Goldsboro High School.

The video was posted on Facebook this week by a student.

According to school spokesperson, Janet Barnes, who used to be a full time teacher at the school, was in her office, dealing with another student when a fight broke out between two girls.

Barnes tried to break up the fight with a yard stick. As of Thursday, Barnes will no longer be used as a substitute.

Apparently no one has trained these teachers how to break up a fight. A teacher gets suspended and the school failed to train.

Cell phone video taken on an Anniston school bus has people buzzing.

A fight broke out between a boy and a girl. She gets the upper hand. But, the bus driver does nothing. A glance in the mirror and she just keeps driving.

A warrant has been issued for the driver’s arrest, but it is in municipal court. ABC 33/40 got videos from a family member of the boy who got beaten up.

For Kathy Finley, “When you put those kids on that bus, she’s responsible.”

The fight went on for more than four miles and in the video, the students fighting were just three feet from the driver.

The principal and some students at Washington High School in Kansas City, Kan., fire back against complaints that their school is unsafe.

A fight between a male and female student at school last week was caught on tape and shown on television newscasts.

“We have only had three fights this school year, and we have taken appropriate action in each case to make sure students involved will no longer pose a threat or danger in the future,” Paul said.

School fight caught on cell phone video and now broadcast across the internet via Facebook has prompted a response from the Houston Independent School District.

“No matter what the situation is somebody should have helped this kid, you can tell from his face he looks scared,” Eric Garcia, a Furr High School graduate, said.

The video shows one student hitting another student in the head with a keyboard. A second aggressor kicks the victim while he is on the floor. The fight lasts for about 30 seconds and ends with the victim on the floor holding his face.

The setting for the fight is a classroom and other students can be heard talking in the background. Nobody intervenes, and no teacher appears to be present.

Garcia did not film the incident, but posted it on Local 2′s Face

vicious high school fight sent a school worker flying into a glass trophy case. For some people in one New Mexico school district, that fight highlights a lack of security on campus.

City officials in Española said they don’t expect to stop all school fights, but there are concerns that a shift in staffing is making the problem worse. Classmates captured cell-phone video of two teen girls fighting at Española Valley High last week. The video shows a school worker trying to break it up, as she gets thrown into a glass case near the main lobby. The girls keep fighting until someone eventually steps in.

Why having police handling every altercation may not be the best option. HWC training could have handled with without pepper spray or a slam down.

Schools who at first were very reluctant and slow to recognize school security issues. Two or three years ago, (schools) didn’t even want police to stop in at buildings. Now school police being armed with military equipment. Classroom doors are being “bearacaded” and still teachers, school staff and students all over the US are being illegally told they cannot protect themselves or others.

Suspension reversed for Santa Rosa High student beaten who was suspended for defending herself.

The video shows Kanihan defending herself against one of the girls before both of them began pounding on her with their fists. A crowd of students looked on.

The school’s assistant principal, Danielle Valente, responded in part by suspending Kanihan for two days. Her parents appealed, saying the action was unfair and would affect their daughter’s ability to get accepted into a college dormitory.

The suspension was upheld on appeal, but district officials launched their own investigation and concluded there was reason to remove the suspension from the girl’s records.
