Multiple violent altercations happened at Patrick Bethel High School in Abaco while the school was having prefect installation proceedings.

Jaynell Mitchell a parent of a student at the school voiced her concerns about the violence. “…At the prefect installation yesterday morning and after that they had like twenty fights. Shortly after three a teacher called me to come to the school to my son because he was having a panic attack, he didn’t want to come outside. They had children that were stabbed. When I pulled up there were all kinda police, the ambulance was there, the children sitting around with blood on their clothes. Its come to a point now where it is past ridiculous.”

Another parent believes that the shortage of teachers and that ethnicity of some of the student is contributing to the violence at the school.
