DETROIT, MI — One of the most vicious school fight videos was caught on cam, but  this time, it’s not between two students. It’s between a teacher and a seventh-grade student.

Diamonique Singleton claims trouble started when students started throwing paper at Ms. Burns, a teacher at Mackenzie Elementary-Middle School. During that time, Ms. Burns thought Diamonique called her a b***h and she flipped out!

Detroit ISD is investigating the incident but says overcrowded classrooms and cuts have teachers on edge.

Ms. Burns remains a teacher for the district, pending the outcome of the investigation. As for Diamonique, she’s been suspended and faces expulsion.

Looks like both could use a lesson in self control.
