In the video, I saw the student trying to get to the cellphone that teacher put it on the table and as teacher was in the way, it looked like that student was trying to bump her but I would hardly call it assault by student.
my one parent would have been furious to say the least, the other would have asked what i did and smacked me again, just in case.
saw a teacher snap in primary school, banged a girls head against the blackboard, then quit teaching the end of the day. the girl taunted her for months until something happened. i went to boarding school later and found out the same girl was there, she used to pet a dead cat, among other stuff. i knew the girl a bit from sharing a walking route home, things at home were not well.
All that’s going to happen is : the teacher is going to be labeled a racist and get fired, given a court order to payout the student and her family for emotional damage and some jail time will be served.
The student will receive a university bursary, and in a few years once at university she will be throwing rocks at staff members whilst protesting.
