Boy, school sure is exciting these days. I'd have to go everyday just so I wouldn't miss anything.

I can't uphold the teacher starting the fight, if that's what happened for real, but I sure can relate. As a high school teacher, the students, especially the teenage girls, will try you. We don't get paid enough to put up with the disrespect and we sure as hell don't get paid enough to be hit. I wouldn't have fought her, but if a student takes it upon themselves to physically hit me, I would take off my belt and give them the behind cutting they should've been getting at home. After that I would gladly turn my license over to the Dept of Education...because it's not worth the hassle.

Teachers don't get paid near enough for the BS that they have to put up with from some kids these days. There are far too many kids in our society who have not been properly taught to respect authority or anyone else. A spanking or whoopin actually works when applied properly. Looks like this girl sure needed one.

I know how to take the fight out of "them". Don't give them free lunches this summer.

Wish it was me, I would have beaten the crap out of this kid.
Another example of the lowlifes some people call children.

Parents need to teach RESPECT at home . Teachers should not have to put up with the brats of today . If my child had done this , rest assured , they probably couldn't have sat down on their bottom until they were at least 21 years old !

You're right, it's not surprising, because it's not a sex tape or a grown a$$ woman doing a striptease for a child!

Look at "who" was involved in the story where a student was body slammed to "calm him down." http://www.wltx.com/news/story.aspx...

Shouldn't he have just called an administrator? Not only that, but he allowed another student to attack the boy he body slammed! I knew it wouldn't take long for someone to come with that BS.

That being said, I can stand on the side of the sub if SHE was simply defending herself...but if the incident report is accurate and the sub started the fight, I would have to say that she was certainly in the wrong. I'm not sure how accurate that report would be, as this SEEMS like a case of "teacher baiting" for the sole purpose of getting this video, particularly since it was the last day of school.

Teachers are stuck between a rock and a hold place these days. If the truth was to be told, I wouldn' be surpraised if the a parent wasn't behind this. Theses children do not have respect for anybody, from first grade on up. Grown children are fast becoming a problem in South Carolina schools( I know this happen in Atlanta). This happen about two years ago in a school in our SC, and the parent stood by while her daughter beat the teacher. She did say one word. A blind man can see why people are taking their children out of public school( Yes, I said it.)

look at the wall in the classroom, it says "ISS", which stands for In School Suspension. so i can tend to believe that the girl made some dumb comment and possibly started the fight.

Whoa Catfight!

I agree with "Stating the Obvious":

This was some kids who wanted their very own YouTude or MySpace Video and they provoked the teacher.

you use this blog to levy your racial insults because you are insecure with yourself and who you are. I say this because I don't see you drawing the same conclusions on the crystal meth case on this very same site. You anger me but I'm not Jesus but I will still love you even if your stupid!

Didn't the character Forest Gump say, "Stupid is as stupid does."

It doesn't matter "who" was involved. And I agree with S.T.O. They probably did aggravate the teacher on purpose just to get their own Youtube video, but no intelligent, level-headed person who cares about their job and/or the students would have taken that bait.

So what's next, Tasers in the classroom? Come on people! If children can't be properly controlled in a classroom, what do you expect when you travel the roads, visit the mall, or go to the theatre? You can expect violence! We are "dooming" ourselves to become an uncontrolled bunch of undignified mobs! Just remember, we ALL will get to live with this!
