Daily News Reveals Shocking Video To Mom...New York Daily News...(thoughts on this?)
I saw this on HLN July 3rd. & was wondering what your thoughts were on this. This video I can't seem to get to play, but perhaps you can search around for it. I'm kinda mixed on this issue. Where a Teacher was caught on tape beating a young teen at school as reported. I wouldn't call it 'beating', but more of the Media just sensationalizing the news. It does call for a complete investigation & it does appear that the Teacher took a swing at the teen, so I feel he should be fired for doing that. An adult SHOULD be able to restrain a student, without hitting him. When working with kids you need to be able to keep your cool.
I worked with kids for over 10 yrs. I know it can be difficult at times to keep your cool. I've been hit, almost bitten, chairs thrown at me, pulled hair, scratched, cussed at, but never lost my cool. I'd like to watch that video again, so if anyone finds it perhaps you can post it.
It appears that the Teacher during a security check point of the kids, grabbed the boy's arm, as the boy went on through & ignored the Teacher's request. The boy then appeared to of taken a swing at the Teacher for grabbing his arm. That's when the Teacher obviously was upset & started a struggle with the teen. It appears that the Teacher & several other workers tried to restrain the teen.
