When you send your child to school, you think that they are going to be safe. The teachers and staff are there to help them grow and become better, wiser adults. Even if your kid gets into a fight, you would assume it would be with another student and that a teacher would break it up, right?

Wrong. Teachers are simply human beings and not all other people have learned their own lessons in life, like for instance not to fight a student.

Case in point, a video has now gone viral of a teacher bodyslamming a student into a desk and them proceeding to punch and attack him.

If you’d like to watch the bodyslam footage for yourself, check out the harrowing 30-second clip below:

While the student did provoke the fight, the teacher should have known better and proved to be the bigger person by not engaging. Even if the teacher had simply walked away, it would have provided a better example that the violence that he chose to inflict instead.

In the video, a male student challenges the teacher by bumping his chest. The teacher responds by pushing the student back, but then the student takes a swing. A fierce fistfight ensues, which includes punches to the face.
