A Boaz school teacher is suspended for allegedly hurting a student. The incident happened this week at the intermediate school.
According to WAAY TV in Huntsville, Boaz parent Dee Miller is furious. He says a substitute teacher hurt his ten year old son during a gym class.
The 5th grade student fell in gym class and asked his teacher could he go to see the nurse. Dee Miller says the teacher then grabbed his son’s finger bending it severely causing him to cry in pain.
The teacher has been suspended indefinitely, and he won’t be able to teach at any other Boaz city school until the investigation is completed.
School board officials said that this violates board policy, and that is not something that will be tolerated.
The school system has not released the teacher’s name, saying it’s an internal investigation.
