YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – A teacher at the Life Skills alternative school in Youngstown was arrested Monday after a fight with a student.
“I haven’t completed our investigation yet. We are just starting in. It seems a little extreme,” said Lt. Ramon Cox, Youngstown Police Department.
Police are not naming the victim, even though he is 18 years old.
The student refused treatment at the scene but was taken to the hospital by family.
Cox said altercations at schools are becoming more frequent. He said the department’s juvenile division is being inundated with school-related calls.
“It’s not one school, one set of students, one set of teachers, it is every day you are looking at the news and see somebody doing something,” Cox said.
Just recently, a preschool teacher at the Head Start program at Wilson school was photographed dragging a 4-year-old down the hallway. Police are also investigating that case.
