According to Fox6, the circumstances behind the fight aren’t clear, but at the beginning of the video, the teacher and the student appeared to be arguing before the confrontation turned violent.

OMG. What happened? I wish there was sound so we can have an idea of why that kid flipped out the way he did on the teacher. Whatever the interaction must have been a snapping moment. Wonder what happened to the kid before hand.

As a soon-to-be teacher, I hope I can deescalate if a situation like this arises for me. I hope the teacher is okay and the student is getting some help.
