The school district officials said the student then threw the teacher to the ground and he hit his head .
Pewu said, “The boy dropped me down with so much force. I was out.”
The teacher was rushed to the hospital where he was examined and treated for a concussion. The student that attacked him was suspended from school.
Fernando Gallard, a Philadelphia School District spokesperson said, “The assault that occurred yesterday is the result of an individual making a dramatically poor choice. The School District does not tolerate this type of behavior and is
working with Bartram High School and the Philadelphia Police to make sure that the student is disciplined and also charged.
