    Hmmm. Removing her from the room was excessive. Jerking away from the deputy was wrong. I can't help but wonder what happened in the hall. Regardless of who you are or whether the police are right or wrong, NEVER physically resist them or be verbally abusive. Not only will you lose the fight, misconduct on your part will cause you to lose credibility. Any improper actions should be addressed through appropriate channels.

    She should have never been arrested. Why is he crying? He help creates the problem. 😔😣He should be apologizing to the teacher.

    She should have suit the the police department for her unlawful arrest and the superintendent as well.

    A good time for the superintendent to get a raise is after the superintendent requires that the teachers who live on less than half of what he makes, gets a raise first.
    What a whimp. Save the tears for the poor teachers who don't make enough to pay their mortgages or put food on their tables.

    I see a white woman not following the rules then getting upset when the rules are enforced. The gavel was banged and she proceeded to keep talking. She thought her privilege would allow her to get away with that. I wish he would've shot her then claimed she reached in her bag just to see if you white people really do always "back the blue" lmao

    Arrested...for what? What was the charge...the charge they’re now not going to pursue? If this teacher was following protocol - speaking during the “Public Open Session” of a School Board Meeting - what was the charge?? Or, did she interrupt protocol/format and just stand up and start speaking? I happen to agree with her line of questioning - however, as a teacher, SHE KNOWS A) during Open Session - the School Board Members, Superintendent and the rest of the crew sitting at that table up front cannot answer questions from the audience, B) during that time is a GREAT time to get “on-the-record” and C) if she just burst out...she was out of order. Having said that, I think that Superintendent is a sniveling cry baby just boo-hooing for the cameras and, frankly, SHE’S not better...boo-hooing that, “...if they have to remove a woman...”. BUT, then again...we have a media outlet ONLY reporting what they want us to see and NEVER THE WHOLE STORY WITH THE FACTS.

    THE SCHOOL BOARD WON'T BE PRESSING CHARGES???????? Really!!!!
    The school board can't justify any charges. The person who needs to be doing something is the teacher for false arrest. She wasn't being disruptive, she was asking questions. She wasn't resisting because she voluntarily left when told to do so by the officer. She wasn't threatening anyone, but was manhandled by a policeman and placed in handcuffs the moment that the camera wasn't on him to give him the sneaky opportunity to say the magic words "stop resisting". Blatant abuse of power, and clearly an attempt to intimidate because the teacher was cooperating with the police from the moment he stepped up to her. Any way that you slice this it's false arrest.

    If you even say the word "union" in St Charles Public Schools in Louisiana, you are fired. Unions in that parish are illegal. These out of the way parishes don't consider themselves part of the United States and get away with everything. When I tried to get an investigative reporter to help me, they literally said "This is waaaaay out of my area." He didn't want to drive all the way down there even once to investigate because it was so far from New Orleans. Most teachers had to commute back and forth to there for years. These are the small corrupt towns that you would see on 80s shows like "The A-Team" where there is no justice and people have to call the A Team for help.

  • Teacher
    Teacher 3 months ago

    I've been a teacher for 25 years in Louisiana in different systems. I've been through Everything. People have no idea how we are treated. I hope this video will finally bring attention to the broken and corrupt school system. The raise issue is just the tip of the iceberg. Our union is a joke. We are worked to death and blamed for everything. We are forced to change grades to graduate illiterate thugs. We have been stripped of any power after our tenure was taken away years ago. We can't punish or fail anyone. They don't suspend the students anymore. Now all they do this "Restorative" crap. As a result, the students are out of control. There are barely any career teachers left..it's a revolving door of Teach for America kids who leave in a couple of years after their student debts have been paid off. I am still in this business only because I will be retiring soon with a pension, but not many people make it as long as I have.

  • Teacher

    If this brave teacher had not gotten this media attention, she would have faced charges and would have been fired. I'm a veteran teacher and have seen it happen to me and many, many others. They just give you some bad BS evaluations and then fire you. There is absolutely nothing that you can do. I tried lawyers, media, union, etc....no one would help me. My fellow teachers just took it and moved on because they don't have the money or the time to fight. Administrators, superintendents, board members, and the freaking secretary of education should have the SAME salary as teachers and be required to teach at least one class. Most of these idiots have taught for a couple of years or have never taught at all. They are worthless. They do nothing except force us to implement their ridiculous policies and subject us to insane evaluation systems like COMPASS.. We have a huge teacher shortage so why not put these people in the classroom so we can see just how well they teach. They wouldn't last a MINUTE in a classroom.

    St Charles Parish Public Schools and Plaquemines Parish Public Schools treat teachers the same way or worse. I'm a veteran teacher who has worked there and have seen it for myself. Hopefully the media investigates them.

    Louisiana has the worst school system in the country. Apparently the most poorly trained police force too. That's what this crocodile tears "superintendent" ought to be concerned with. This creep goes on to talk about "fairness to families". Firing the cop and the superintendent and using their salaries to give teachers a raise would be fair.

    6th place in the district? He sure didn't do that all by himself so why is only HE deserving of a raise? OF $30,000 A YEAR? AT ONCE? Yet NO Teachers were brought up to their pay scale? And he doesn't see the problem? Seriously?

  • Xyz Same

    He is upset because he got a lot of backlash - good. - If he thinks he needs to be better paid - go to into the private sector and see what you are "worth" to an employer. Why would HE get a raise when the whole system is defunded. And if the school performs well - who delivers that performance - ideally he mananges the teachers so that they together with the students create that performance.
    He does need some skills - but an ADMINSTRATOR does not need to "walk on water" or be "especially creative" or have "unique skills". A lot of people could do the job - would they get the position (which begs the question HOW or with which connections !! does one get into such a position ??).
    Other managers have to meet sales targest or need to have a product ready (meeting some criteria) or train staff - he has nothing like those challenges to meet. I would assume every good fast food restaurant manger has a more challenging job - and might be paid much less.
    Nor does he have to deal with the really difficult situations (in the classroom with the students). He has to deal with orderly adults mainly (and if they do not show sufficient obedience he will use a Marshall to have them arrested. Big deal.

    She wasn't arrested for questioning the superintendants raise...she was arrested for not sitting down when they asked her to. It was shocking that they arrested her for that. But .....follow the rules and you won't have to endure the embarrassing consequences. If you look at the clip..you see the board saying "alright that's enough". That's when its time to keep your mouth shut...and ponder another way to make a statement...maybe organize and get a protest going.. or try to get some media attention to leverage your position. But to ignore their order to sit down....unfortunately caused her some embarrassment. Funny how the media spins it to headline "Teacher arrested of speaking her mind"...when it was really for not following the meeting rules.....typical

    That's why I hate the news...they don't show or tell the whole story. She was asked to leave, she refused. She even went as for as to pull her arm back and told the cop to "Wait". This video clearly paints her as the innocent victim and the police officer and superintendent as the bad guys...which isn't the case at all. No wonder why people get their news from the internet and news stations are now being questioned about the truth or fake news.

    I live in vermillion parish. 4 miles away from where this happened. The boss always makes more than the employees. The CEO of GM and Ford makes way more than the workers of an assembly line. The police officer asked her to leave...she refused and pulls back her arm resisting the officer. That was her mistake. When a authority figure tells you to do something..then you do it! Period! Next time she should listen. She has only herself to blame for this unfortunate incident.

    All politicians are corrupt and in it for their own selfish agenda. The people no longer have a voice and never have. Let no one deceive you about this. They do it to gain power for themselves and not to serve the people. Its called money!!! If a person disagrees with them, they will humiliate them or have them arrested. DO NOT EVER TRUST A POLITICIAN. They are their to protect the white shoe boys club only and that ain't you and never will be! That officer is just part of that same group. Its called give me the power group and I will use it against you ever chance i get. Disgusting! When you go to any City Hall Meeting whatever is being voted on has already been decided by the elite of that governing body. The mayor already has or who ever is in charge has already arranged to get what they want for other favors. Its NEVER about the people who actually do the work. All systems whether school or any local government are corrupt. If the person who ran for that office wasn't corrupt when he got there, he surely was and is after the fact. NEVER trust a politician.

So his pay isn't ranked up there with the average for Superintendents in the rest of the state, so what. Nobody made him take that job and he still makes well more than the teachers make, or most people in the country for that matter!... Be a leader!

    I'm pretty sure I would get arrested too in that situation, I would expect it. Teachers complain they don't make enough, I think they do alright. Most of them just show youtube videos during class (ask your kids). As far as the super is concerned, he does not need a pay increase and certainly should not be able to decide when he does. And death threats come to every A*hole put in the spotlight, if anything it should make you realize you are an A*hole.

Then how she suddenly forgot how to walk when the officer was escorting her down the hall, stumbling about and acting as if he's shoving her without reason... no piggy, he's moving you along. This shouting, orc-faced creature got precisely what she deserved. You can't disrupt civility without consequence.
