BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) - Two Buffalo teachers have been attacked by students in just two days. The most recent incident happened Thursday morning. Wednesday, a second-grade teacher suffered a head injury.
The President of the Buffalo Teachers Federation Phil Rumore says a female student at Riverside High School was arrested Thursday for attacking a teacher. Rumore says the student threw a male teacher to the ground and believes they kicked him in the face.
He says once the student was arrested, authorities discovered she was carrying a knife. Rumore does not believe the knife was used in the attack.
Buffalo Police told News 4 they are looking into the incident. Wednesday, Buffalo Police say a second grader at School 90 attacked a teacher. Police Spokesman Mike DeGeorge says the teacher was taken to ECMC for head injuries.
Rumore says the violence in schools can't continue.
Rumore said, "No one that enters that schoolhouse whether it's a student, parent, teacher, should have to fear being assaulted. And we have to do everything that we can to make sure that everybody realizes our schools are safe havens. And that means that if there are assaults, they have to be prosecuted to the fullest extent."
Rumore says students that are young and violent should be punished by spending time away from school. Officials within the Buffalo School District say they're investigating both cases and have no comment.
