dru radravious williams dehart florida

A Florida teacher was fired last week after being accused of ordering an attack on a student who reportedly threatened her, WPTV-TV 5 reports.

A school board in St. Lucie County officially let Dru Dehart (pictured left) go during a meeting Thursday evening. The accusation stems from an incident in March of 2013 when 7th grader, Radravious Williams (pictured right), was attacked by a group of students at Northport K-8 school. Dehart is accused of encouraging six students to fight with Williams after the boy allegedly threatened her. The male students, ranging from ages 11 to 15, were arrested for “hitting” and “kicking” Williams, WPBF-Tv reported at the time.

Radravious claims that after he told his teacher that he “wished he could curse out teachers someday,” Dehart encouraged the attack, even telling the group to “teach him a lesson.”

“They picked him up, carried him, holding him by the neck, took him down to her classroom and forcibly made him apologize to her,” Latasha Darrisaw, Williams’ mother, told the station after the attack. “And [Dehart’s] remarks to him were, ‘I’ve got my eighth-grade boys on you; you’re not so tough now.”

During the Thursday evening meeting, representatives from the school district told the board that Dehart failed to protect students that day. Dehart’s attorney, Mark Wilensky, said his client wasn’t surprised that she lost her job.

“I don’t think she had any real hopes or expectations that in this setting today that was going to happen,” Wilensky said.

The boy’s family released a statement through the law firm McLaughlin & Stern, saying “we are confident that is the right decision for the children of St. Lucie County.” The firm says the family plans on filing a federal civil rights lawsuit.
