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 a cell phone cam and posted the disturbing video on MySpace.
"Students see these videos and they copy them thinking it's cool. It's time to teach students that it's cool to be kind and compassionate, and it's uncool for them to be violent and malicious. To be in the spotlight on the Internet will negatively impact their future. Students must stop and think about the consequences, and parents and educators must get involved in communicating to their children that this behavior is not acceptable."
Should the kids who watched be punished just as severely as the kids who beat the teacher?
