Teacher, Students and Violence in the Classroom

Teachers discuss violence, students and safety in the classroom

There’s been a lot of talk and concern over the past week about a fight at largo high school last Friday between a teacher and a student. That incident… caught on smartphone video. The teacher was arrested and charged with physical child abuse and assault.  She is now on administrative leave.  The student’s status is not known.  We’re going to examine the issue of safety in school, the problems and possible solutions.
