This is the shocking moment a female teacher was filmed brawling in a Kentucky classroom with a 16-year-old male student, who has now been charged with assault.
The fight, which broke out at Iroquois High School, Louisville, on Monday, shows the teenager, Kamron Jennings, being pushed to the ground by the educator, later identified as Carrie Durham Adams.
In the 20 second clip, filmed by another student and posted to Facebook, Jennings appears to square up to Adams before pushing the teacher in the chest.
She reacts immediately, pushing him back and knocking him to the ground during the violent altercation.
As other students try to avoid the incident the teacher takes off her jacket before the pair continue to land blow.
Jennings has since been charged with third-degree assault.
The teacher, who has not been officially identified, is under investigation and has been removed from the classroom. According to Jefferson County Sheriff's Office she has not been charged.
The boy's mother, Kenyatta Jennings, told WDRB: 'There is a protocol they are supposed to follow when you are dealing with a disruptive student.
'Why didn't you follow your protocol?'
Jefferson County Public Schools told The Courier Journal on Tuesday: 'The teacher is not in the classroom today and the investigation is ongoing.'
Records show Adams was hired by the district in July 2016. Shortly before Jennings appears to push her the teacher says: 'Put your hands on me. You think I'm afraid of you?' She continues to shout at him as altercation continues.
It is understood the fight was sparked by an argument over Jennings' cellphone.
He said: 'I pushed her, so she grabbed me and pushed me. That's when I got up, and I hit her. That's when she stumbled into the table.
'She took her jacket off, and that's when it really escalated, and at that point, I felt like she was really trying to hurt me.'
Others in the room scream and shout for the incident to stop before the clip comes to an end.
Vice president of the Jefferson County Teachers Association said: 'What the kid did was not right, but he was acting like a kid.
'That's indicative of a training problem and also indicative of a problem at the building overall, where there needs to be collaboration and buy-in between the administration and the staff on what the behavior plan for the school is going to look like.'
The incident was the third reported assault of a staff at Iroquois High School in October.
Superintendent Marty Pollio said: 'We’re going to make some decisions about how we can support the school and make sure that we can eliminate some of these problems.'
