And lest you think that this was a relative "bad apple" of this particular school, consider this: she had been voted the school's Teacher of the Year - twice.
Even more troubling, at least according to the teacher and her lawyer, is that this incident was made possible by an environment where the students were allowed to assault the teachers without consequence.
While I feel that this is a completely unacceptable excuse (and, frankly, after seeing the video, I don't know how you can possibly call it an excuse), these allegations do raise an important question: should the school bear responsibility, i.e., be held liable in negligent supervision, for this incident? If not, what incentive does the school have to change its ways?
