A transgender kid? How old is this kid?
Hmm, I think around 17-19.
The one who got his face pulparized is 19-20 
I'm sure they covered how to handle that in your college ed classes and/or the school's handbook.
Haha. Ironically all this week has been an inservice on CPI training for most teachers.
I've had some form of restraint, response and emergency training/certification almost every single year I've been a teacher. Longer actually, since I was at one time certified to teach P.A.R.T. before I got the job.
Then we went to 'Pro-Act'
One thing I've learned is that it almost never works like they want you to think. Nowhere in any of those training sessions did they cover what to do when two students run out into the parking lot and start fighting wedged between two cars so that nobody else can get to them, for example.
Interestingly, I automatically find myself rooting for the transgender kid without having any information on the circumstances. Either kid could have been the instigator... I guess that's reverse discrimination...
Kinda weird this time.
As it happens Eyelashes was the instigator, but in response to a bullying incident that happened yesterday.
It went like this:
Yesterday: Bullying incident.
Today (morning) lots of smack talk. Lots.
>break while a field trip departs< Seriously, everybody stopped arguing and helped get the field trip ready.
Back to smack talk.
Yelling, pushing ensued and I separated them with another teacher.
Finally one of the boys tore off his shirt threw it in some dirty bushes full of stray cat poop. (long story)
and then walked out of the yard to the opposite side of the fence and they started yelling through the fence at each other.
Then the boy who went outside climbed over the fence ignoring the gate 6 feet away and they started fighting.
Then they ran in opposite directions (teachers were in the middle) out different gates to the opposite side of the fence... and started fighting again. Knock down hair grabbing fist to face fighting
Separated them again, and I basically carried Eyelashes to a back office where 'she' would be safe and isolated. The other boy.. dunno.
The OP comment was as I was taking Eyelashes away.
Then everybody went back to class.
