I went to school with this teacher, and she is not one for violence!! She was one of the brightest in our class, and obviously felt that using the broom stick was a last resort. These children are losing respect for authority, and if teachers are expected to work in environments such as these then there should be someone on staff to handle situations such as this one. I understand how the system works, and if they felt they had to take disciplinary action, so be it; however, I believe firing her was not necessary.

Oh and as far as that boys mother, I am disgusted that all she saw was dollar signs on her sons back! I don't believe for once that the broom caused those bruises. It was the countless time bouncing off their school desks I'm sure! Way to your child that as long as there is a way to make some money your actions are ok. Even if they include continually bashing another human beings face and head. Make that money son! Shameful

I live in Tucson Az. I heard this story first on Mojo in the morning I heart radio. I showed the video to our 3 children and we had a long discussion. Even our 8 year knew this teacher did the best she could do with what she had. I also explained to them if they ever act like idiotic fools like the boys fighting forcing the teacher to be a bouncer instead of teacher, I would first make sure the police are involved and they NOT THE TEACHER, be put in the system for violence and for disrupting the peace. I would yank their butts out of that school. Not before I had them give a public apology to the teacher and I would fight for the teacher to keep her job! Ms. Eaton we are praying for you and support you through all this!

@Trigg: Yes, I agree that parenting and other factors could be a part of it, but you can't just blame the mothers, especially if both parents are around the child or if the father is raising the child; it's not JUST mothers, regardless of what anyone says(go on, attack me...)...I do feel bad for this teacher though. I'm glad people who actually care are doing something about this.

This is just proof of the lack of respect children now have for themselves and others. I'm sorry that the teacher Was put into the position of needing to try to stop the horrible fight between these delinquents. Bad parenting in America is an epidemic clearly displayed in this video. Kids that act this way are an embarrassment and their mothers should be ashamed. I don't believe in physical punishment of our children but when you act like that your being seen as a child is lost and if u want to act like an animal u should be treated as one.

Please watch let up rip on channel 2!! The students speak. This is becoming a war between children with behavior problems and authority figures!! ADULTS NEED TO STAND UP!! We're the ADULTS!! We are the authority! If she loses, these kids are going to know they can get away with whatever they want and they're going to go WILD!!! Let's stand together as adult authority figures for these kids and show them there are consequences for their actions!!!!

All teachers face life determining decisions daily. We act in the interest of the students. If she had not intervened, would the school district have fired her for failing to act? She is trying to make a difference; so punish her, that makes sense.

I am in solidarity with a teacher that has been betrayed by the unethical practices of the EAA. The EAA is a for-profit, racist emergency management experiment that millionaires are wreaking onto the city of Detroit.
