Teacher Glasses Slapped Off By a Student

In a recent incident at Parkland High School, a student has been charged with two counts of misdemeanor assault and one count of communicating threats after a video surfaced showing him slapping his teacher inside a classroom. The Forsyth County Sheriff's Office condemned the behavior and stressed the importance of respecting educators. The student involved is a juvenile, and no further information has been disclosed to the public.

The video of the incident, which took place on Monday, quickly spread across social media, sparking outrage and concern. In the video, the student strikes the teacher multiple times, causing the teacher's glasses to fly off. Despite the teacher's composed response, the incident was deeply unsettling.


Responding to the incident, the Parkland Principal Noel Keener stated that an immediate investigation has been launched in collaboration with law enforcement. The student will face disciplinary action as per district policies, and may also face criminal charges. Superintendent Tricia McManus affirmed that such behavior will not be tolerated in Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools, emphasizing the need to support the affected teacher through the aftermath of the incident.

This distressing event sheds light on the challenges teachers face in the classroom. Jenny Easter, the president of the Forsyth County Association of Educators, expressed her dismay, calling the incident a "travesty" and underscoring the ongoing crisis of teacher safety and retention. The local and state educators associations have pledged to support staff members and ensure a safe environment for all.


The school district reported 46 incidents of students assaulting school personnel in the current academic year, reflecting a concerning trend. Campuses should be safe havens for both educators and students; therefore, efforts to address and prevent violence in schools are paramount. Counselors are available to support students who may have been affected by the incident, as the community comes together to advocate for a culture of respect and safety in educational settings.
