Teacher Assaulted with Brick by 4th-Grader’s Mother

Enforcing the no phone policy got a teacher assaulted by the student and her mother.

Not only was the teacher assaulted by a student who bit her, but she was assaulted by the mother as well, along with one or more others. I’m not a fan of public school, but claiming we have the system to educate children, while children are taught violence against school officials, is delusional.

If you search YouTube for stories of students attacking teachers, you will find that there are a lot of cases. This is one story among many.

CBS Pittsburgh reports, “Police: Teacher Violently Assaulted After School, Hit With Brick To Face.

“She said, ‘I put my window down and the woman threw a brick through my window,’ and hit her in her face,” said Betty Davis, Watkins’ mother. “And that’s when she said, ‘I told you I would get you,’ and [Watkins] said, ‘I didn’t realize it was two other people,’ but she said she felt something hit her in the back and it was two men.”

Watkins suffered facial injuries and lost a tooth. She was taken by ambulance to Allegheny General Hospital and listed in stable condition.

“Her head is hurting real bad, her face on the one side is swollen,” said Davis. “They say they want to do a scan to make sure everything is okay.”
