Baltimore school system 'reached out' to teacher attacked in classroom
BALTIMORE (WBFF) - Baltimore City's school system says it is reaching out to the Douglass High teacher who was seen attacked in a viral video, and will provide more support for students as well.
"We understand that an incident like this one can be difficult to process," said Baltimore City Public Schools in a new statement released Thursday.
"School counselors and social workers will be available at the school for students and staff to address any questions and concerns they may have," the statement continued. "District leaders have also reached out to the teacher to provide any additional support that may be needed."
The school system said disciplinary action would be taken against the student in the video but would not say what exactly would happen.
