Donovan called the attack "shocking and disgusting" in a news release, and said that the situation needs to be dealt with effectively, alluding to criminal charges.
Witkowski further emphasized that schools should be a safe haven for all teachers and school staff.
"Sadly, the violence captured on the video did not just germinate out of thin air, it was behavior likely learned, seen and experienced close to home," the statement said.
Reggie Moore, who is the city's Director of the Office of Violence Prevention, took to Facebook and said children generally become "numb" to witnessing violence the more they are around it.
He said that the students who just stood there and laughed as the student punched the teacher are all typical responses depending on each individual's exposure to trauma.
He also expressed his respect for teachers saying they "wake up every day to give children in our city a chance."
According to local police, the teacher suffered injuries that are not life threatening however he is severely suffering from when he was punched in the head several times by the 16 year old male student.
The incident will be now be reviewed by the Milwaukee County District Attorney's Office for a possible charge of battery to a school district official.
Milwaukee Public Schools said in their statement that students who violated the code of conduct face severe disciplinary action, which includes expulsion.
The school district however would not comment on what type of action they're going to take though as they conduct their own internal investigation.
