Pittsburgh Teacher Dragged From Car, Seriously Beaten By Student's Parents, For Disciplining Student

A Pittsburgh teacher was followed and assaulted by the parents of a student, after taking a cell phone away from her in class on Wednesday.

Pittsburgh, PA - A Pittsburgh Public School teacher was seriously injured Wednesday afternoon after being followed and then assaulted by the parents of one of her students.

The violent incident started as the teacher, age 46, was leaving her school, Martin Luther King Accelerated Learning Academy PreK-8.

The teacher was on her way home when the attack occurred, according to CBS Pittsburgh.

Earlier on Wednesday, the teacher, whose name was not released, took a cell phone from a student in her class.

The student was using the cell phone in class, which is not allowed.

The student, who was not identified, told her parents, according to 'sources', and the student's mother told the teacher that they were going to "get even."

The student's parents were waiting on the teacher when she left the school.

The parents, who were not identified, followed the teacher in a black SUV. When she got near the West End Bridge, near the intersection of Route 65, the couple got out of the SUV and approached her.

The teacher rolled down her window, according to TribLive, as the woman threw a brick at her. Both of the parents then pulled the teacher from her vehicle and began to beat her.

The teacher was taken by ambulance to Allegheny General Hospital, where she is being treated for "facial injuries and lost teeth." She is listed in stable condition.

It's not known if the parents have been taken into custody.

No further details have been released.

Wow, now that was a real mature way to handle that situation.

I'm guessing it was a precious little "din't du nuffin" whose parents think she should never be corrected or scolded. But would be the first to scream police brutality when they get arrested for this.

docfurby, BoycottNFL, I dunno, this screams of stoopid white trash. Fact that the parents not being identified does lend plausibility to your theory though.

Teacher needs to not only bring charges against the parents but perhaps even, in the best interests of the child, have them investigated by CPS. I would also bring suit against the parents in civil court and retire. The school needs to remove the distraction of cell phones while in the classroom and let the children know that any and all cellphones in class will be taken and only the parents can retrieve them. There is NO NEED for cell phones in the classroom. Those who argue differently clearly have no idea what their children are doing with them in school.
