(Reading) -- A Berks County school says it is investigating after video was posted on Facebook showing adults standing by while students fought in a classroom.

Northwestern Human Services School in Reading is investigating the incident. 

Alexon Jackson says his 13-year-old son was one of two special needs students fighting on the cellphone video he said was posted on Facebook and later removed. 

The video shows one adult leaving the room, while a second stays to watch. 

Spokesman Kevin Feeley says the school doesn't tolerate fights in classrooms and expects some action to be taken once it has all the facts. 

Jackson says his son should be held accountable for taking part in the fight but that adults should have stopped it.
