Video: Texas Teacher Gets All Up in Student’s Face — Who’s at Fault?
A video was posted to Facebook showing an Aldine, Texas middle school teacher removing her face mask and shouting at a student. According to The Daily Mail:
The scarlet-haired educator approaches the student and corners her against the wall, as seen on two separate videos.
'Shut up,' the teacher tells the masked girl. 'First of all, don't get it twisted.'
The student holds her hand up to her face as the unmasked teacher breaths on her.
'I don't care. I don't care,' the teacher says while breathing out frantically.
'Get out of my face,' the student replies, to which the teacher says, 'Make me.'
The incident happened in mid-September, but was just recently released to social media this week.
Footage of the September 17 incident began spreading on social media on Monday.
On Thursday, the district said the teacher has been removed from the classroom and is facing termination due to her 'unacceptable' conduct.
'After being notified of the incident, the teacher was removed from the classroom and an investigation was conducted. The investigation has concluded and the district will take appropriate administrative action,' a spokeswoman told DailyMail.com.

There is no doubt that the teacher's actions are incredibly inappropriate and she should have been more professional. I do not condone her actions, but the video does not show the whole story. I wonder what lead to this teacher acting this way. The video does not show what happened before she confronted the student.
We would like to hear your thoughts and reaction to this video. Who is at fault here? Obviously, the teacher acted inappropriately, but is the student to blame here too? Tell us what you think on Facebook or on our station app.
