Mom goes wild at Lake City alt school



A Lake City mother hauled off on the principal of her child's alternative school after the principal suspended the kid.

From the Associated Press:

"Tyra Hays ... went to Challenge Learning Center to pick up her child, who had been suspended. Challenge is an alternative school for children with behavioral, academic or learning problems. Police say that Hays argued with Principal Deborah Hill, left and then came back 10 minutes later. They say Hill told Hays to leave but Hays struck her. The fight was broken up by school employees."

Perhaps the mom's reaction suggests the reasons behind the kid's suspension. Who ever said principals have it easy?
