TKC QUESTION: SHOULD TEACHERS INTERVENE IN KANSAS CITY GIRL FIGHTS???
A brutal KCPS beat down was captured on video and the response, as always, has been to assign blame to the teacher for not getting involved.
Thankfully, there's a bit of push back on this topic. Checkit:

Money line from an expert . . .
"In the controversial video, some parents have criticized the teacher, who's holding a two-way radio for at times backing up and apparently letting the fight escalate.
"When it gets to this level and with this kind of violent fight, which is what this is, I would not want any teacher to intervene," said Andrea Flinders with the Kansas City Federation of Teachers. "You need somebody that knows what they're doing and that would be security."
Still, this is still a question that deserves further consideration and shows us that KCPS parents expect a lot from teachers who aren't getting combat pay.
