A Texas teacher suffered minor injuries after she was attacked in her classroom by a student she had corrected earlier in the day.

A video of the attack (shown below), which occurred in the Dallas Independent School District (ISD), was uploaded to Twitter on Nov. 19. The video was captioned: “Skyline [High School] going down the drain so fast bro.”

The teacher and student are standing next to each other in the video when the girl slaps the teacher in the face. Then, both the teacher and student attempt to hit each other.

At some point in the video, both end up on top of a desk while other students in the classroom look shocked.

The teacher, who has remained unnamed, said that she plans to press charges, according to CBS News. The student is reportedly 16 years old.

According to a statement released by Dallas ISD, violence is not tolerated at the schools in accordance with the Student Code of Conduct. The statement noted that the student will face discipline.
