A Florida teacher’s union is demanding answers and action after a 5-year-old student allegedly attacked a teacher who ended up in the hospital and needs surgery. To say this is unacceptable isn’t strong enough,” Anna Fusco, president of the Broward Teachers Union tells “No one should have to go home to their family with a black eye, a broken nose, or a cracked head — real injuries that have happened.
“We don’t get trained in how to go into combat with students or how to protect yourself against a chair or a bookshelf getting thrown on you. This is not the first time this has happened,” Fusco adds. “This has happened before.”
According to a police report, “The incident began when two students in the classroom, 4 and 5 years old, began throwing things around the classroom and at the teachers, along with flipping the chairs.”

She was rushed to a local hospital, with injuries so severe she had to be intubated, The teacher has since been released from the hospital.
