    LOL. That kid had a bag of weed and he was the one that started the fight. Why is this even a debate? The kid should be expelled and the teacher should be given a medal.

    One of my former clients was a student at that school. That school is really screwed up.

    Assuming the leave is paid, as it usually is, there's no rush to judgement here. Any time a teacher gets physical with a student, there is cause for concern and it's appropriate to conduct an investigation. It sounds like that in this case the action on the teacher's part was justified, but that's rare and if Lyon had just watched the vid and said, "hey, that's OK," there'd no doubt be an outcry about the district permitting corporal punishment and teacher on student violence.

    As a teacher myself, I'm glad the teacher took him down. He was clearly quite restrained with him.

    Yes, can't have corporal punishment, because apparently those "stern talking to's" and "calm reasonings" that are all the rage now have worked *so well*....

    *sigh*
