ADELANTO, Calif. – An 11-year-old California boy at an alternative school for at-risk students is accused of punching his fifth-grade teacher in the face and breaking her nose.

San Bernardino County sheriff's investigators say the teacher was attacked around 9 a.m. Thursday at the Adelanto Community Day School in Adelanto, about 85 miles northeast of Los Angeles.

The teacher was taken to a nearby Mojave Desert hospital for treatment. The boy is in juvenile hall for investigation of assault.

Investigators tell the Victorville Daily Press that the boy became upset when the teacher asked him to move to another seat in the classroom. The boy refused to move and yelled at the teacher before getting up and punching her.

"At-risk" means at risk of becoming a criminal right? So this type of incident isn't really out of the ordinary for this type of school is it?

No that isn't what at risk means.

It probably is. There should be security at these kinds of places, but a kid this unruly just needs to go to boot camp

Quoting xCottonCandyx:

No that isn't what at risk means.

Then what does it mean?

It's amazing how people don't hold themselves to the standards they set for others.

if they are at risk for educational failure, it probably has something to do with the attitude

I don't see how this is news.  This kind of thing happens and always has.

"At risk" can actually have several meanings depending on the situation. My MIL works with "at risk" kids and those are the ones they are trying to keep out of jail. When it is used in conjunction with the word "student" it usually means someone at risk of dropping out.

It's safe to say that these kids may have some behavioral issues, so a teacher getting punched does happen.
