There Was A Big Fight In An Atlanta Classroom And PLOT TWIST It Was Two Teachers Who Then Told Students To Delete The Video

Washington Post – A teacher and classroom paraprofessional were captured on camera in a fistfight inside a science class at Stone Mountain Middle School in Tucker, Ga., about 20 miles outside of Atlanta. A student filmed the May 19 fight and posted it on social media.

“Everyone was screaming like stop, stop, stop,” a student told CBS46.

“I really couldn’t believe it,” student Madison Hall told WSB-TV2. “Like I thought it was kids fighting and then found out it was teachers. It was just bad.

CBS46 spoke to students who said that after the fight, school officials came into the classroom, went through their cellphones and told them to delete any evidence of the brawl.

“Nobody apologized they just came in and were like who videotaped this and stuff like that,” one student said. “I think they were trying to push it under the rug so nobody would know about it and the school’s reputation wouldn’t be messed up.”

It’s a big time change from the usual classroom altercation to see a couple of teachers throwing hands at one another without a care in the world including the screaming room full of students is horrified and trying desperately to make it stop. But the school’s “holyyyyy shit we’ve gotta cover our asses as hard as we can” response perfectly sums up the difference between a couple of “adults” in a school fighting situation and some kids. Kids grew up with the internet, they know the second that squabble happens that one of their classmates is Snapchatting it, Instagram storying it, texting it to a buddy, that video is GONE. But the school here thinks that if they put the fear of God in these kids that somehow they can do some damage control, maybe make it look like they’re less of an absolute debacle where the people who take care of kids aren’t responsible enough to keep a sane learning situation themselves. Nope! You have two teachers fighting in class in 2017, that genie is out of the bottle the second the record button is hit. Not knowing that is one of many reasons a lot of these people should not be in charge of shepherding Atlanta youth to greatness.

Also #noracist but shout to the white kid with his headphones in his ears not even turning around to look at what’s going on:

When you’re a white dude and there’s even a 10% chance of a Worldstar video going on within a 10 foot radius of you, you fucking keep your headphones in, put on some Korn or Slipknot, and pretend you don’t see a thing. He’s learned that at a very precocious age. The closer you are to someone staying deadly still to avoid a T-rex, the better.
