FL. Jacksonville teacher suspended for not intervening in kindergarten fight

A northeast Florida kindergarten teacher named Rita Baci has been suspended for allegedly making multiple video recordings of a child beating up other children without intervening.

But some believe it’s the education system itself that makes it difficult for teachers to intervene in school fights.

On three separate occasions, the teacher used her smartphone to make a video of a male student hurting others in the class. According to the Florida Times-Union, the videos show the boy smacking another boy “about his face and body several times, kicking another student who was attempting to hide under a table, and punching and slapping a third student.” The kindergarten teacher did not intervene in any of these school fights.
