You separate children, which often can be done with strong words or intimidating physical presence. Wrong, wrong, and wrong.

Never had to deal with a gang of kids trying to beat another kid have you?
This was a group of kids piled on top of a single kid. If the teacher had done nothing, that kid would have had to go to the hospital and you all would have said he should have done something.
At the point where there is a pile of kids on top of another, the whole physical presence better develop into physical action. Sure, he could possibly have grabbed a kid by the arm and pulled him off, but what about the other 7 or 8? If he flung a kid, then went for another etc.. You-all would again be dissing the teacher.
Where is the policy statement on breaking up a fight?
