FULL TITLE: Teacher fired 'after she ordered six students to attack 7th grade boy who spoke back to her' in shocking videotaped beat-down

A Florida teacher was fired from her job last week after she allegedly encouraged six students to attack a classmate that spoke back to her.

Teacher Dru Dehart was fired on Thursday night from her position at Port St. Lucie's Northport K-8 school by the St. Lucie County school board, WPTV reports.

Dehart was accused last year of encouraging a March 2013 incident caught on surveillance video that showed six students attacking classmate Radravious Williams, WPBF reported last year. The attack took place after Williams allegedly told Dehart that he 'wished he could curse out teachers someday.'

All the students will remember from this incident was that the teacher was ‘unjustly’ fired.

Wow! So there is something a teacher can do to finally get fired from a public school (after a year!)

Radravious now reportedly suffers from trust issues, and his mother Latasha Darrisaw says Dehart has yet to apologize for what happened.

Are these people cartoon characters?

Whatever. The teacher is an idiot.

Even with video proof, it still took over a YEAR to fire her.

Sounds like either a hair-trigger thing, or a tip of the iceberg thing. WTH was the teacher thinking? Was there so little backup in the office that this became the only option?

Thanks Morgana.

The teacher made several mistakes.

1) If you’re going to set students on a troublemaker, you have to be discreet about it, and use language that can have one or more non-violent interpretations.

This goes all the way back to England’s Henry II, who it is said, remarked to no one in particular “Will no one rid me of this turbulent priest?”, while referring to Thomas Becket. (In truth, it is thought he actually said “What miserable drones and traitors have I nourished and brought up in my household, who let their lord be treated with such shameful contempt by a low-born cleric?”)

In any event, the idea is the same. Plausible deniability.

2) Never gloat. In fact, she should have done the opposite, and immediately come to the bad students’ aid, offering him assistance and support. This also would give her credibility in confusing the description of the assailants, to aid in their avoidance of punishment, if they are discreet enough to not brag about it.

The command was within their “cultural context” -

“he dissed me, give him a 6 on one beatdown”.

Fully within culturally accepted norms.

You are quite right. I had a couple of coaches/PE teachers in junior and high school who operated this way.

My PE teacher in Jr High would just nail you in the head with a volleyball if you cut up. And let me tell you he was a volleyball marksman, even from across the gym. Never get away with that today, but let me tell you we all respected the guy.

Well, I certainly had no respect for the PE teachers I mentioned, for them or their designated pack of jackals.

Some adults were bullies as children, I guess, and take vicarious pleasure in subtly encouraging it as adults.

...forgot to mention that it was spelled “SHITHEAD”. On the 1st day of school she had to ask how to say it. I’m sure if she said “shi*head” she would’ve regretted it.

I guess that's the case.

I can envision myself, just barely, as part of a group beating somebody up, if I was sufficiently outraged at him for what seemed like good reason at the time.

I absolutely, positively cannot see myself being proud later of what I'd done, much less recording it and posting it on Youtube as a brag.

Proud of what? Their ability to do a 6x or 10x beatdown? What's to be proud of?

(Shaking head in disbelief at the subculture of fellow Americans.)

Dehart allegedly told the boys they should ‘teach him a lesson,’ the channel says.

‘And her remarks to him were, “I’ve got my eighth-grade boys on you; you’re not so tough now.”’

ANOTHER REASON TO HOMESCHOOL

This ping list is for the “other” articles of interest to homeschoolers about education and public school. This can occasionally be a fairly high volume list. Articles pinged to the Another Reason to Homeschool List will be given the keyword of ARTH. (If I remember. If I forget, please feel free to add it yourself)

The main Homeschool Ping List handles the homeschool-specific articles. I hold both the Homeschool Ping List and the Another Reason to Homeschool Ping list. Please freepmail me to let me know if you would like to be added to or removed from either list, or both.
