The menace of bullying continues to plague schools in America. Most recent incident of bullying shows the moment when in a Washington middle school teacher allegedly joins bullies in beating a 13-year-old student to the ground and physically abusing him, all caught on video.
The appalling footage shows the boy being dragged across a classroom floor by his arms and legs, a sock is stuffed into his mouth. One of the bullies can be heard yelling ‘pull his pants down’ as others laugh in chorus. Apart from all the bullying itself, what is even more shocking is that the teacher of the class, John Rosi, stands idly while all this is happening.
The 18-year-classroom veteran was suspended from his post for 10 days in an agreement that allows him to avoid losing his job. As can be seen in the video, Rosi, wearing a florescent yellow shirt is sitting on the chair with his feet outstretched in front of him looking absolutely relaxed.
Mother of the 13-year-old, Karla Kinney demanded immediate resignation of Rosi saying that teachers who can allow such activities to happen have no business in the classroom.
