Fire Teacher Who Allegedly Forced Boy to Hang From Chalkboard by Belt

Target: Richard Autry, Rockdale Public Schools Superintendent

Goal: Protect students by removing teacher who allegedly forced boy to hang from chalkboard by his belt.

A kindergarten teacher is accused of forcing a special needs boy to hang by his belt from the classroom chalkboard. According to the boy’s grandmother, the school principal heard screaming and entered the classroom to see what was going on when she discovered the boy hanging from the chalkboard. The teacher indicates that she was punishing the boy for misbehaving.

The Division of Family and Children Services is investigating the charges and learned during interviews with the boy that this isn’t the first incident. The school district reports that they’re disciplining two teachers and a paraprofessional who were involved in the incident.

Demand that this teacher is removed from her position and not allowed to work with children in the future.


Dear Superintendent Autry,

The principal of the Shoal Creek Elementary School reportedly found a kindergarten boy hanging from a chalkboard by his belt. The boy tells investigators that this isn’t the first time he’s been forced to hang there as punishment for his behavior. His grandmother says the boy has special needs and doesn’t always understand. The teacher claims hanging from the chalkboard is an effective punishment.

We demand that this teacher is removed from this school and banned from working with children in the future.

  1. Special needs or not…. fire the bitch and black list her from ever getting a job w children again. If that was my son I would be in jail for beating her ass! I don’t care what the kid did or if he is special needs, this is abuse. What else is she doing when nobody is looking. Hang her from the flag poll. Rotten bitch harming a child.

  2. My child attends this school.This is the worst school ever. The staff, including that principal act as if they hate these kids. The principal has run all of the caring and great teachers away! The teachers say the most mean and discuraging things to these precious kids.the staff/teachers will walk pass you in the hall and not speak.never do they smile.I can go on and on. Oh yeah even the lunch ladies are mean and talk badly to these kids. Someone please investigate this child day jail.

    I’m not sure what the principal’s involvement is, but this should have immediately gone to the police department, child protective services and the school board and this teacher should have been suspended immediately until the investigation is complete. If the principal allowed the teacher to continue to work, she should be fired also.
