Three students are facing criminal charges after a teacher was knocked unconscious during a classroom disturbance at an Atlanta high school.

Atlanta police Officer John Chafee said the teacher was injured Monday at the New Schools at Carver.

There was no immediate information on his condition.

Chafee said that the students face charges of reckless conduct.
