High school students in Texas formed a mob and violently beat up their Assistant Principal, after she tried breaking up a fight in the hallway.
Assistant Principal Attacked By Teen Students
Students at a public high school in Texas allegedly formed a mob and attacked an assistant principal, landing her in the hospital with head injuries.
“Three or four other kids jumped in on her. Just pummeled her to the ground, and they started kicking her and pulling her hair,” a teacher at Westfield High School in Spring, Texas, recounted to Click 2 Houston under the condition of anonymity.
“She loves those kids. She is the nicest person, and she’s the best administrator that we have at Westfield High School.”
The teacher asked not to be identified out of fear of retaliation from Spring Independent School District, but she says she felt compelled to speak out after the assistant principal’s brutal beating, which allegedly happened after she tried to break up a fight.
Students Identified for Discipline
“School administrators and police officers were able to intervene and stop the fighting quickly, and identify students involved for discipline,” part of a district statement read.
Here is a video showing the fight:
Victim’s Family Speaks Out
The victim’s family says she was left unable to talk after the attack and was suffering from excruciating head pain.
Her father says it’s unclear how long she may have to stay at the hospital, as her pain needs to be constantly monitored. She will also need a CT scan.
The school district released a statement that reads in part, “All students involved in the altercation will be subject to the full extent of disciplinary action available. We take these issues very seriously as the safety of our students and staff is our highest priority. There will be no tolerance for any altercations or disruptions to learning.”
A teacher disputed the district’s words, adding the entire campus only has two officers.
“When you call for help to the front office, nobody ever shows up,” she said. “We don’t feel safe. Faculty don’t feel safe and parents… If the parents knew how unsafe the inside of the school is, they would be upset.”
