Remember that episode of “The Wire” where Prez was teaching a middle school class and one girl sliced another girl in the face with a razorblade? Well apparently, that wasn’t too far from reality. A 10th grade girl in the Baltimore public school system beat down (down, I say) her female art teacher in class in front of other students while another student captured the whole incident on video via his cellphone. Beyond the fact that the art teacher looks like she ain’t nothing to mess with (that’s one ballsy 10th grader), what astonished me most about this was the stats for the Baltimore public school system. According to the Baltimore Sun, 112 students have been expelled from the Baltimore public school system this year for assualting teachers. One hundred twelve kids so far this year have been expelled for beating down a teacher. That’s insane and the school year is not even over yet. What is really going on? I am so shocked and saddened by this.
