New Jersey teacher screaming at student in YouTube video gets put on leave

Controversial, Education, News, OMG, WTF

A New Jersey high school teacher was placed on administrative leave after a video of him haranguing a student went viral online.

"Shut your mouth! Don't you ever for one second think that you're going to tell me anything," the unidentified Fair Lawn High School teacher said to the student. "Do you understand that?"

The cellphone video, presumably shot by another student, outraged viewers when it was posted to YouTube Friday.

The student's responses are not audible in the video but the teacher clearly did not like what he heard. The adult's language almost feels as if it were lifted from one of the spiteful principals in a John Hughes movie.

"You are my goddamn student! Do you get that? I'm your teacher!" he screamed. "Don't ever tell me what to do! You get it now! Now sit down!"

The student walked back to his desk as the teacher added, "Now go cry to your counselor!"

Superintendent Bruce Watson confirmed to the Fair Lawn Patch that the teacher was placed on leave while the school district investigates the incident.

"We clearly do not condone it," Watson said to NorthJersey.com. The Board of Education and administration "deeply regret the actions that took place in the video."
