Middle school orchestra teacher breaks a violin on April Fools day -- is that "classroom management"?

So, an orchestra teacher at a middle school lost his temper on April Fool’s day and smashed a violin to get the kids to stop talking.

Now, I had a bad experience in 2005 subbing in a middle school band class – two of the sixth grade classes didn’t have a student conductor to play “The Prehistoric Suite” – but the eight graders played an Offenback overture well, much better than the playing on this YouTube video.
