NEWS GRAPHIC 8The authorities must step in to deal with increasing school violence before more serious injury is caused to students, teachers and others.

This is according to Second Vice President of the Trinidad and Tobago Unified Teachers’ Association (TTUTA), Lynsley Doodha.

He was referring to several videos that have been making the rounds recently on social media

In one of the videos, two school children fought with what appeared to be a police officer, who after trying to break up the fight, was also beaten by the girls.

In another video schoolgirls were seen fighting with MTS security guards when they intervened to try to break up the fight.

He revealed that there have always been these types of fights in school but with the advent of social media becoming more prevalent, these fights were now coming to the public’s attention.

It’s a sentiment that was echoed by President of the Trinidad and Tobago Unified Association Devanand Sinanan in an interview with News Power Now yesterday.

    This is not a job for teachers. MTS workers should be able to control these wild youngsters. However, it is a good idea to tape all these incidents and air them weekly on TV.Many of these young fighters have a great potential. Once they believe in almighty Allah they can join ISIS in Syria to fight all the non believers worldwide. Abu Bakr will be proud of you.
