Kindergarten Teacher Caught on Tape Lifting Six-Year-Old Boy Off the Floor by His Neck; Receives Only a Ten Day Suspension
One of the biggest problems with education in America is that teachers can get away with virtually anything, and not get fired. Case in point: teacher Barb Williams was caught on tape grabbing a six-year-old boy by the neck, and got nothing more than a slap on the wrist.
An Ohio kindergarten teacher has been suspended for ten days after surveillance video appeared to show her grabbing a six-year-old boy by his neck.
… Not only will Williams be back at the school after the summer vacation, she will also be teaching Ian’s class.
His parents requested that their little boy – or the teacher – be moved, but the school has refused.
‘He’s scared of her, even going to the school next year, even the year after he’ll still have to see her if she’s present in the building. That’s probably going to scare him,’ Mrs Nelson told Fox.
Her husband added: ‘The principal told at that time that she’s a highly recommended teacher and they are unwilling to transfer him to a different class.’
So not only can a teacher get away with assaulting a child, that child will then be forced to be in her class. The fact that the principal can just handwave something like this away, and then punish the child by putting the teacher that assaulted him in charge of him every day, is outrageous beyond belief. It’s worth noting that now, apparently, teachers can commit crimes and continue on educating our children as if nothing happened.
