I teach in a middle school. Some of the kids are bigger than I am. Thankfully, I have not been around during any of the many fights that our students have been involved in this year. However, if I were around, I am not sure how much help I would be. Our school has no clear "response system" to use for fights. I know that teachers are expected to "step in" and break up the fights. The problem is: The kids do not stop fighting when an adult steps in. We had a teacher get her arm broken just last week by a student when she was trying to break a fight up. I wonder if I could get in trouble if I did not break up the fight, but just called the office for help? What is it like at your school?
