High school teacher suspended after video of student brawl emerged

A female high school teacher in Lecanto was recently suspended for five days after she was seen in a video clip watching two students fight, Bay News reported on July 14.

Reports said a video captured through a mobile phone last April showed 62-year-old Gilda Herrin doing nothing while two female students engaged in a fight. In the video, Herrin stood for a while before she and another teacher separated the two students. Herrin, who students said laughed in the video, argued that she was waiting for someone to help her because she didn’t want to get hurt. Herrin stated that she has suffered injuries in the past when breaking up student fights. The school board decided to suspend the science teacher after they carefully examined the video footage.
