Video of Oakland teacher brawling with student gains national attention


OAKLAND, Calif. – Some California schools are dangerous places, and not just for students.
A cell phone video shot inside a classroom at Alliance Academy in Oakland presents the most recent evidence of what’s really going on, and it ain’t pretty.
When a white male teacher attempts to eject a 13-year-old female black student from class, the two get into a scuffle at the classroom door. The teacher kicks the student, and she charges back swinging. The teacher then lobs a desk at the young girl before another school staff member hauls the student away, according to a video posted on Inquisitr.com.

The episode resulted in the student moving to another school, but the teacher wasn’t disciplined.
That’s likely because the type of violent behavior in the video is common in California schools. CBS reports police have been to Alliance Academy more than a dozen times this school year, and the district has expelled five students in 2012-13. One student was arrested in the murder investigation of an off-duty paramedic.
“We’ve had drugs, alcohol, we have students who are cutting consistently,” Faris Jabbar, a teacher at Alliance, told CBS. “Fights, threats, violence.”
Teachers blame a lack of stability and structure. They told CBS there’s a high turnover rate for teachers and school administrators there.
The school district sent in extra school administrators and an extra security guard in response to the video, according to CBS.
The story has an ironic twist because Oakland school officials are currently working to revoke the charter of several nearby American Indian Model Schools for alleged financial improprieties.
Those schools are wildly successful, particularly compared to the miserable traditional schools in the Oakland district.

Hardcore Gangs Hit Ohio Suburbs GANGS IN THE ’BURBS
Subversive element creeping beyond Columbus’ borders
Last year, Westerville North High School suspended two students who flashed MS-13 hand signs and drew gang insignia during an English-asa-second-language class. MS-13, or Mara Salvatrucha, is a notoriously violent street gang with roots in Los Angeles. It was formed by immigrants from El Salvador.

Gang crime isn’t nearly as serious or common in the suburbs as in some Columbus neighborhoods, but suburban schools and police departments are increasingly on watch.
"It’s not so centralized in the inner city as it used to be," said Pat Brooks, a veteran Columbus police gang unit officer.

Suburban police call Brooks and his colleagues when they suspect gang activity in their jurisdictions.

Most of the crack dealers in Reynoldsburg are gang members who live in Columbus, said Tye Downard, a Reynoldsburg police narcotics detective.

They go there to make mor…
