People are seeking answers after a viral video showed a teacher getting involved in a fight with a student at Trezevant High School in Memphis.

The fight, which reportedly involved as many as 50 students, happened last Tuesday. Memphis Police reports state that the brawl began between students in the school’s cafeteria. 

Reports then mention a victim who got between the fighting students to separate them.


It is alleged that one of the students, named to be 16-year-old Taquaviyon Craft by Fox13 News, ran up behind the victim. The victim then grabbed Craft who then swung at the victim, hitting him in the face.

“He was constantly pushing me and I was telling him all of that force wasn’t needed and I was still walking and he was constantly pushing me,” Craft said. “He pushed me again and that’s when I got angry and fought back.”

Another student who was also suspended because of the incident, corroborated Craft’s story.

“He pushed him and he wasn’t supposed to get that aggressive with the student,” the student, who remained anonymous, told WREG. “Teachers can’t touch students.”


Craft’s mother says she feels like school employees should have handled the situation differently, but no details have been released as to whether the teacher will also see any discipline in the incident.

This latest fight comes just days after Deborah Rawls, the mother of a Trezevant student, was charged with attempted first-degree murder and two other charges for bringing her son back to the school with a gun after he had been in a fight earlier that day.

On March 22, Rawls’ son was in a physical fight with another student. She checked him out of school after the incident but brought him back to campus at dismissal time. Her son got into a confrontation with the others who had been involved in the earlier fight and fired shots before fleeing with his mother.

    How the kids are raised along with social media.
    A wise man once stated, ” respect is taught at home. If your kid is disrespectful little s@#$, it is your fault. Not society’s. Not music. Not video games. YOURS.” Never like this when I went to school.
    Then again, I’m in my 70’sand back them kids were taught respect.
