Did any of you see that video of that teacher beating up a student that hit the news recently? Can you imagine if that had been one or your children? What  would you have done?

The teacher and her lawyer were on Good Morning America today.

It is quite interesting isn't it? While her behavior isn't to be excused it does really put the spotlight on what's happening in schools. I heard on one news

I knew someone who taught at an alternative school, and the horror stories she told!

There is absolutely NO excuse for the teacher...she really lost it!!


But....teachers do NOT receive any special training and I have heard of many incidents where students have attacked, hit, thrown things at teachers.
