Police are investigating after a teacher was caught on video altercation with a student in Texas
The police are investigating confrontation between a Texas teacher and a student who was caught on video, and the district has suspended the teacher.
The incident happened at Humble High School on Wednesday.
Cellphone video showed a teacher grabbing a student and banging him against the wall before other students surrounded the two.
Elvert Bolden, the student’s father, said KRIV-TV the teacher at the school taught English and that his son was in the 10th grade.
“You see the students trying to get the teacher away from him and he keeps screaming why you put your hands on me. Then the teacher slams him to the ground and the teacher steps on him,” Bolden said.
“I want him arrested and charged,” he continued. “I want his teaching license revoked. I don’t want him to be able to go to school in any state and teach another kid if he does that again. If I had put my hands on mine baby, I would have been in jail.”
Bolden said the district informed him that a substitute teacher was in the classroom when the incident happened.
He says the English teacher went into the classroom to tell his son he was being too loud and then upset him.
The Humble Independent School District published a expression about the incident and said that the teacher is unlikely to return to the classroom.
That should not have happened. It’s not acceptable. The teacher was on leave. An investigation is ongoing and he is unlikely to return once the investigation is complete.
On January 11, 2023, the teacher was helping out in another classroom when he physically attempted to get a student to sit down and listen. These actions are unacceptable and go against the standards and expectations of all employees.
It added that police are investigating the incident.
