DEKALB COUNTY, Ga. – A teacher and a paraprofessional who were caught on camera fighting in front of students at Stone Mountain Middle School have been fired.
“I mean that’s not a good example in front of kids. That was just bad. It was just bad,” parent Valerie Stewart said.
Video shows at least two students trying to break up the fight, but it didn’t work. Another staff member had to intervene to stop the two adults from punching each other.
School officials declined an on-camera interview while the investigation is open, but sent a statement that said: “The interaction and conduct in the video is completely unacceptable and contrary to our district’s tenets and core principles. Those staff members that participated in the conduct have been removed from the learning environment.”
School officials said both staff members have been arrested and charged with disorderly conduct in a public place.
