Teacher Breaks Up Fight With Broom, Gets Fired

Pershing High School is one of the most dangerous schools in Detroit, if not the nation. When a fight broke out recently between two students, one teacher took matters into her own hands and stopped it with a broom. She has since been fired.

Protocol dictates that teachers use a walkie-talkie to communicate problems in the classroom. Sure enough, this teachers device was broken. Cue Detroit bankruptcy joke.

A representative from Pershings communications office says teachers were instructed during orientation to call for security on a walkie talkie during such situations. FOX 2 has learned this teachers walkie talkie wasnt working.

Because Pershing is such a sh*thole and because it is in the states school turnaround district, teachers are not part of a union. Therefore, this poor woman cannot file an appeal.

One of the boys in the fight gave an interview with Fox2 Detroit, called her his favorite teacher. Then went ahead and said she should have waited for security. All this while his mother stood by and basically defended his behavior.

Is she a hero or was her firing justified? Volume warning, screaming ahead.

    Nope, firing was not justified. Why is there always someone screaming?

    Poor teacher. Damned if you do, damned if you don`t. Society is so sick and twisted and it starts at the top.

    Why in God`s name would you teach at a non-Union Detroit school? She must be a better person than me.

    I think pepper spray would`ve worked better, but that`s my humble opinion.

    Between the guy repeatedly yelling(I think) damn, and whatever chick that was screaming, were I that teacher I`d be hard pressed who to broom-whack first.
    Beyond that, I think if you work in sh*thole school, you know your equipment is in poor condition, you know parents are gonna side with their little angel and you know that administration will save themselves by throwing you to the wolves, you should take a somewhat realistic view of which rules you`re willing to break, when you`ll put your neck out and for who.

    F*cking ridiculous. What do they expect teachers to do, wait until one of the kids is seriously injured?

    This is why you could not pay enough to be a teacher, especially for a bunch of disrespectful wannabe gang bangers that don`t even care about learning. Biggest waste of time on the planet.

    As kids we had fights all the time.
    Funny thing is though, even in a fight we didn`t really want to do any real damage to each other!
    If the teachers got us, we took our medicine.
    Quite a few of us got a clip `round the ear by a teacher before being sent to the principals office.

    We were high spirited, todays generation just seems to be vicious animals with no respect.
    When I look back now, we were so innocent compared to today.

    If my parents found out one of the teachers had to clout me, I would get another one from dad.

    Chimps. Anyone who denies this, is denying their own senses. I mean, just LISTEN for Christ`s sake!!
