The Oakland Unified School District is getting some unwanted attention after a video surfaced of a fight between a 7th grade female student and a male substitute teacher at the Alliance Academy, a middle school known for its horrible reputation, reports CBS affiliate KPIX5.

With 360 students, and an extraordinarily high teacher turnover rate, 5 students have been expelled from Alliance this school year and several of the teachers aren’t planning to come back next year.

So far this school year, police have visited the campus 13 times, but the fight between the female 7th grader and male substitute teacher, caught on a cellphone camera before Winter break, has gotten national attention.

“They destroyed the whole classroom. They broke the desk. They threw the computers on the floor,” said Jose Barajas, an eighth grader. Barajas told KPIX5 that he had to hide “under a desk, when other students tossed desks and other items across the room.”

Teachers at Alliance said that they become burnt out quickly at the school and Barajas claims that teachers are disrespected by some students because they’re “new.”

So where does that leave the future of the school?

“You get in a cycle where you’re constantly placing new teachers, those teachers leave after a couple of years,” said district spokesperson Troy Flint. “And it creates a lack of stability at the school. And I think that is something that undermines academic progress to a certain extent.”
