Video Footage of Teacher beating boy
A 13-year-old boy was beaten by his teacher after making fun of another student in which a fellow student filmed on her cell phone camera.
The students had first thought it was a joke played by the teacher with laughing and giggling heard in the background but soon it was realized that the teacher was perfectly serious.
The incident which took place on 29th April at the Jamie’s House Charter School, in Houston, Texas, has outraged the child mother who has since complained to the Harris County Sheriff’s office with a sworn statement from the child.
The incident occurred during a party in which students were celebrating the competition of TAKS testing.
Sherri Davis, the teacher in question suddenly snapped when she caught Isaiah Johnson, the 13-year-old boy making fun of a fellow student.
Davis was seen on the video, lifting a table which was between Johnson and her, and chucking it across the class. She then cornered the young child who may have behavioral problems, slid the child on the floor.
She is then seen jokingly slapping and kicking him, but for reasons unknown, she suddenly got more physical by kicking him slapping him and then slamming his body to the ground which caused the young boy to hit his head on the wall.
What is more disturbing is that, the school in which the incident occurred, is a special school for students at risk and have disabled children as well as children with behavioral problems.
The mother of the child, Alesha Johnson, who did not know of the incident until she saw the video footage was outraged and asked for the teacher to be imprisoned.
Alesha Johnson said “It’s horrifying, he had bruises on his side where she was kicking him. He had a knock on his head, and he had a black eye,”
“There is nothing they can say, a grown-up beating on a child is not right,”
“Not even I beat on my son, so what gives her the right,”
Another very disturbing information about the attack was that according to Isaiah Johnson, other teachers and grown up’s were present during the attack and did nothing.
The teacher in question has since been fired from her job.
