Another Black Student Is Dragged From The Classroom By His Hoodie. All The Caribbean People That I Talked Today Said "Is That All They Are Complaining About? My Teachers Used To Beat Me In The Classroom"
(This latest teacher / student conflict has no legs - because the teacher is Black, along with the student).
The first thing that came to my mind upon seeing this video is how my parents would have reacted:
"WHAT DID YOU INITIALLY DO TO TRIGGER THE TEACHER TO SEE YOU AS A DISRUPTION TO HER CLASS TO THE POINT WHERE SHE NEEDED TO REMOVE YOU BECAUSE YOU REFUSED TO LEAVE HER CLASSROOM?"
Admittedly the fact that the teacher intended to press charges against the student for assault made her fair game to the stepmother who is now returning the favor, seeking assault charges against the teacher.
CONFLICT RESOLUTION SKILLS!!!
How do you keep a situation from escalating to the point that we have another distraction on the news?
