BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — The Buffalo Teachers Federation says the McKinley High School teacher that was assaulted by a student has been transferred to another school.

According to the BTF, the teacher has been involuntarily transferred to Leonardo daVinci High School.

“That a teacher is viciously attacked and severely injured by a student, who has allegedly been involved in other serious disciplinary issues, is punished, is unfortunately symptomatic of the breakdown in school safety in our schools. This punishing of a victim will not stand. The Superintendent, School Board and all involved, has sent a message to all students. You can viciously attack a teacher and the teacher will be punished. Not here, not now, not ever."
Phil Rumore, BTF President

The BTF says they will file a grievance and take other legal actions.
