It was Teachers Gone wild at one Georgia middle school after a vicious brawl erupted between a pair of female educators in front of horrified students.

According to CBS46, the physical altercation which was caught on cell phone video occurred on May 19th at Stone Mountain Middle School in suburban Atlanta.

The footage shows the teachers throwing punches and pulling one another’s hair with disregard of the students, who desperately attempted to break up the melee.

“From what I think I know the teachers were arguing about a teacher, a male teacher, and they started arguing and it went on for about three to five minutes,” a student told the network.

“Everyone was screaming like stop, stop, stop,” the student added.

Another faculty member finally separated the two teachers.

Police ultimately arrested both women for disorderly conduct in a public place.

After the dust cleared, students said school officials came into the classroom, went through their cell phones and made them delete any evidence of the fight.

School officials said both women would be disciplined for “engaging in a physical altercation that caused a major disturbance in a classroom,” WSBTV in Atlanta reported.

“The interaction and conduct in the video are completely unacceptable and contrary to our district’s tenets and core principles,” school officials said a letter to parents.

“Those staff members that participated in the conduct have been removed from the learning environment.”

Although parents are calling for the immediate firing of both teachers, the women will be allowed to keep their jobs pending an internal investigation.
