Our schools

A scuffle over a cellphone escalated into a fight among dozens of students Wednesday morning at Northeast High School in Oakland Park, the Broward Sheriff's Office said.

Eleven students -- all juveniles -- were arrested on charges including battery and disruption of a school function . . .

According to Broward school district spokeswoman Marsy Smith, the fight broke out about 9:20 a.m. in the hallway near the cafeteria of the school, 700 NE 56th St.

The school was not placed on lockdown, and classes continued on their regular schedule. School officials would not comment about the fight.

Smith said the students would probably face 10-day suspensions.

Our schools need to promote discipline.

Unfortunately, they focus on self esteem.
