HOUSTON, TX – Cypress-Ridge High School in the Cy-Fair Independent School District has been getting some social media exposure that school administrators probably don’t want.
A classroom fight caught on video has a parent of one of the students wondering about the safety of all kids in the Cy-Fair ISD.
Eric Green says his daughter was minding her own business when another student came up to her and started beating and kicking her, with the teacher in the classroom during the whole thing.
The cell-phone video lasts about 45 seconds, during which time the teacher hit the panic button, bringing school administrators to the room.
A Cy-Fair ISD spokesperson sent us a written statement that said:
‘On May 28th, two female students engaged in a physical altercation that was captured on video by a fellow student. The classroom teacher immediately responded to the situation by requesting emergency administrative assistance. The campus administration conducted an investigation and the students involved were disciplined according to the Student Code of Conduct.’
But Green is not satisfied with the results, and is even concerned about all students in the school saying, “My concern is Cy-Ridge have no system in place to protect my child while she’s in school. And it’s not just my child. It could be anybody’s child. It could be your child.”
They say a picture is worth a thousand words. Videos like this can speak volumes.
