Teachers Want Stronger Policy To Protect Staff From Rise In Student Assaults

At a School Committee meeting last week held at the Middle School Performing Arts Center, a large contingent of teachers wearing red T-shirts showed up to bring attention to an alarming increase in assaults on teachers this year by students with aggressive and disruptive behavior.


Nancy Murphy, President of Groton Dunstable Educators Association (GDEA) told the School Committee, “Staff are routinely being hit, kicked, punched, slapped, bitten, scratched, shoved and spit on by students.”
