Should Teachers Intervene When Fights Break Out?

New attention is being brought to classroom fights after a tragic situation. A fifth-grader died last week in a fight at school.

RaNiya Wright, 10, was unconscious but breathing when authorities arrived at Forest Hills Elementary School in Walterboro, South Carolina, on Monday. However, two days later, RaNiya succumb to her injuries. Her mother, Ashley Wright, says the fight was a result of bullying her daughter endured.

Now, serious questions are being raised about breaking up school fights in the wake of RaNiya's death. Who is responsible for breaking up a fight between students? Should teachers intervene and put their own safety at risk?
