Teachers 'Forced Pupils Into Cage Fighting'



Teachers forced unruly pupils to settle their disputes at school with brutal bare-knuckle cage fights, a report says.

Staff at the school in Dallas were provided with "gladiator-style entertainment", whistleblowers have claimed.

One parent alerted the authorities after her son returned from the inner-city school with a swollen hand.

In the report the school's former principal Donald Moten is accused of getting security guards to put youngsters in the steel cage to "let 'em duke it out".

Woah.

Now this is pretty shocking.
How can this go unnoticed for so long? Surely some kids would have raised this as a problem to some level of authority even if it just be their parents?

Is anyone from Dallas and who might have some more information on this?

Cheers

Good G-d. They may be on to something with this. This might just set the unruly buggers straight. Think about it. Unruly kids may be violent or bullies, a few fists against the ol' noggin would do a great deal to set them straight! I wonder if they had referees? On the other hand, what a terrible way to permamnently screw up a kid.

I wish I had gone to a school like that.They called the cops on us when we fought.
If it was against their wishes then thats bad but if the 2 people do agree then I think it is ok.

Hmmm I still do not really agree with it in terms of it being an uncontrolled environment.

I have no problem if two consenting adults wish to fight (if under 18 please request consent from your parents
) but from reading the article I get the impression that some did not want to fight. This is also described as "cagefighting" (makes me think of Wolverine in X-Men 1 but I guess it is more like UFC) as opposed to the more "sporty" fighting such as boxing which is a little dangerous for kids who can probably not control themselves as well as a professional fighter can.

Its a good way to settle things for sure.Course you have all the hippies saying its bad,but physical violence/dominance is still quite integral and natural to us.instead of having something drag on for years on end get it over with within 5 minutes.But like you said,there are weaker folks who are forced into such a situation that they dont want to be in.

Funny, my dad told me stories about how they settled in school fights in his day. His Gym teacher would make them put on boxing gloves and slug it out on their knees until they both didn't want any more. Reverse psychology I guess. Let them fight until they don't want to fight anymore. I could see it working but the public would never go for it.

When I was at school, if two lads had a beef they could go and see a particular PT teacher and he would take them to the gym at lunch time and let them put on the gloves and fight it out. Those gloves were truly huge and it was like getting hit with a medicine ball


In the OP's post I can not understand why a school would have a "cage" and allowing kids to fight bare knuckle is truly reckless, I think the teachers concerned should be suspended pending an inquiry.

PEACE,
