She is petrified to return to school after being attacked by a student.
First the cheerleader beating...now this? This morning on Today, Matt Lauer talked to Jolita Berry, the Baltimore high school teacher who was attacked at school by a student while the rest of the class watched and cheered. One student even captured the beating on cell phone cam and posted the disturbing video on MySpace.
Although the student who attacked her has been suspended, the teacher says she is petrified to go back to work. Marietta English, the president of the Baltimore teachers' union, told NBC News that students in that particular school "know that there are no consequences for their behavior, so they are pretty much running the school."
Should the kids who watched be punished just as severely as the kids who beat the teacher?
