A Georgia middle school teacher and her aide were recorded brawling with each other in front of a classroom full of students.
On May 19, the knock-down, drag-out incident recorded on cell phone video by a student and has gone viral ever since then.
The clip featured Stone Middle School and noted a staff member shoving a female at the front of the classroom.
Then what’s presumably a second staff member, was seen jumping in to the female’s defence.
This is the exact time when the two staff members begin going at it.
The video shows full-on hair-pulling, bodies slamming into blackboards, and frightened students screaming for them to stop.
A local new source reported that the fight broke out during Field Day activities.
Brittany Randolph-Johnson, an eighth-grade teacher, and Milan Etheridge, a special education paraprofessional who was seen assisting Randolph-Johnson in the video, were both charged with disorderly conduct and went sent to jail and were later released on bond.
It is to be noted, a student spoke to a local news reported and mentioned that the pair had in fact been arguing about a “male teacher.”
Parents were furious at what had happened.
Valerie Stewart, a parent said, “They couldn’t have waited until school was out? Mature adults? And then talk about it after kids were out of the classroom?” she asked WSB.
Although, Stewart’s daughter, Madison Hall, a student at Stone Mountain, didn’t witness the fight. However, when she heard about it Hall noted that she “couldn’t believe it. Like, I thought it was kids fighting, and then found out it was teachers. It was just bad.”
Making things even more interesting, students mentioned that school officials later went through their cell phones and ordered them to delete all and every evidence of the fight.
“Nobody apologized,” a student said.
“They just came in and were like, ‘Who videotaped this?’ and stuff like that. 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.”
On the other hand, DeKalb County School District went on to say that they are completely unaware of an incident where the schools staff went through student cell phones.
Nevertheless, one video safely made it to the internet.
