A teacher at Southwestern Classical Academy high school in Flint, Michigan was hit in the back of the head and knocked out by a chair thrown by a student during class on Thursday. The student has since been arrested while the teacher was released from the hospital and is expected to return to class.
Screen image from a viral video shows a chair thrown by a student about to land on a teacher’s head at a school in Flint, Michigan, September 28,2023.
Video of the attack shows a female student screaming as the teacher stands several feet away with her back turned to the student as she tries to deal with an altercation in class. The student picks up a chair and beans the teacher in the back of her head. The chair appears to shatter as the teacher falls in a heap on the floor. It is not clear who the student was screaming at before tossing the chair.
Video of the attack was posted to X Twitter by Post Millennial Editor Libby Emmons, who reported the teacher was knocked unconscious:
