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.
