Pennsylvania: 45 teachers resign; worst behavior comes from some of the youngest students

Nov 22, 2017, Fox San Diego: At least 45 Pennsylvania teachers quit citing violence, ‘unprecedented misbehavior’ http://fox5sandiego.com/2017/11/22/at-least-45-pennsylvania-teachers-quit-citing-violence-unprecedented-misbehavior/ City teachers pleaded with district administrators Monday to help support them as they deal with what they are calling unprecedented misbehavior among children in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania schools, some of which is resulting in physical violence against teachers. The Harrisburg Education Association says the behavioral issues have prompted the resignations of at least 45 teachers between July and October, according to WPMT. Further resignations have since occurred, according to Jody Barksdale, the association's president. Some of the worst behavior has come from some of the district's youngest students, Barksdale said.
