“The St. Lucie County School Board voted Tuesday night to suspend Northport K-8 seventh grade teacher Dru Dehart with no pay.
The decision comes after the superintendent recommended Dehart’s termination following an investigation into a March incident where 7th grader Radravious Williams was allegedly beaten by classmates.
In the report, one of the students told investigators that Dehart, “told us to come out here and do this to him.”
The investigative report calls Dehart’s actions “wholly inappropriate.” – Source: WPTV.com Channel 5 report

“Six children went to jail and as far as we are concerned, they are victims in this too. They were manipulated and they were told to have a certain story,” Williams’ attorney Dena Sisk Foman said.
Foman blames the teacher and says she instigated the fight.
“It is truly unbelievable what happened. A teacher ordered a hit on a child,” Foman said.
