On Monday, November 12, 2018, Anita Moss's biology class at the University of Texas at San Antonio was planning to review for a test to be held the following Wednesday. Instead, class was interrupted when Moss lectured her students for being disrespectful before leaving the lecture room to make a phone call.

Moments later, it was discovered that she had called the police and requested one student to be escorted out for her "uncivil" behavior.

According the tweet below from UTSA student Apurva Rawal, the escorted student, a black 21-year-old named Paige, merely had her feet up during class. Rawal caught the moment on video.

KSAT, a local news outlet in San Antonio, reports that UTSA has released a statement that they have seen the viral video and have since looked into investigating the incident, citing allegations of racial discrimination, not to mention an unethical practice of authority.

"This concerns me greatly, and it's incumbent upon us as an institution to face this head-on," UTSA President Taylor Eighmy said in an email sent to the student body. "It's something that we need to address immediately as a university community."

Rawal's Twitter thread incited outrage from UTSA students, faculty, and beyond, including a response from Paige herself. But one student, who claims to have been present during the incident, took to Facebook to reveal a different side of the story, as seen in the tweet below.

Whether Moss' reason for requesting law enforcement to excort Paige from her classroom was as miniscule resting her feet on a desk or for more ill-mannered behavior as she claims, the necessity of her actions has been put into question.

According to KSAT, Moss' biology course will be taught by a different professor for the remainder of the semester. Meanwhile, Paige has been welcomed back to class continues to receive support from her peers.

Who do you support? Was Moss exercising her duty as an educator by enacting an "obscure" disciplinary approach against classroom incivility? Or should Moss have just relaxed and put her feet up before deciding to unfairly singling out one student as a target to assert her dominance? Let us know in the comments below!
