There is yet another controversial ass whoopin’ going viral on the Internet. This time it is not a father and son, but teacher to child. And this would not be the first time. There have been other altercations between teachers and students in Baltimore that have made national news.
According to Baltimore’s local NBC affiliate, WBAL, news reporters weren’t given much information about the student or the teacher. But another student caught the altercation between the teenage boy and his teacher on his cell phone. The incident occurred in September, but has gone viral since being recently released on WorldStarHipHop.com The two are arguing outside the Youth in Transition School in Baltimore County, run by the National Center on Institutions and Alternatives. The private school is described on their website as a “special education school, focusing on students with autism and emotional and intellectual disabilities.”
The teacher seems to blow his top with the student and tries to get him to hit him, so he can have him removed from the campus. The dialogue from the dispute goes like this:
“If you ever want to get real, you let me know. I can meet you. I know where you stay. I’ll be there,” the teacher was telling the student in the video. “Let me end it for you. You don’t want to go to school, I will make sure you don’t go to school anymore.”
While it appears that the student may have challenged the teacher in the classroom and the teacher was trying to show him that he wasn’t as bad as he thought he was, the teacher’s method crossed the line and resulted in his termination from the school and the school contacting Child Protective Services.
But we want to hear what you think about the teacher’s actions. Do you think he went too far and he should’ve been terminated? Or was this a “Lean On Me” situation that, were it not caught on video, may have done the boy some good? Judge for yourself.
