In this video, security should get the troublemakers out of the classroom by any means necessary.
We can clearly see that the instructor has lost control of the students to the point where the dude in red is barking orders at her and she's complying
. I've never seen that in my life.
You don't learn anything from people you don't respect. Personally, I'm all for giving back to teachers the ability to impose their authority as they see fit
(short of physical punishment of course) because it's the best way to prepare kids for the real world, where you have lenient bosses, and not so lenient ones; where one mistake can be overlooked in one work setting and get you fired in another; where you've got to understand that saying that "the dog ate my homework" won't always get you a deadline extension.
As far as the original video in the OP, I agree with people who questioned the method with which the officer brought the girl outside, but I refuse to question his presence there. It's called consequences
: she refused to obey the teacher's order, then the administrator's, and they had to call in an enforcer. *kanyeshrug*
Education is too important to side with people who cannot respect their teachers and the other kids who come to school to learn.
