SAN ANTONIO -- A mother is furious after a teacher instructed classmates to line up and hit her 6-year-old son.
Amy Neely says her son’s kindergarten teacher at Salinas Elementary School publicly accused him of being a bully. Things got physical when the teacher then allegedly instructed fellow students to bully him – physically.
“There were 24 kids in that classroom and they hit him twice,” the mother tells News 4 WOAI. According to Neely, her son is not a bully but just a kid cutting in line. She says her son was sent to another classroom and that’s where Neely says students were told to hit him in order to "teach him a lesson."
“He was hit in the face, in the head and in the back,” Nelly says.
Although the 6-year-old wasn't seriously injured, his mother says her son has suffered emotional trauma.
News 4 WOAI has learned that the teacher at the center of this scandal will not be returning to the classroom at Judson Independent School District this year.
Judson ISD police have filed charges of official oppression against the two teachers involved. The Bexar County District Attorney's Office is now investigating this case.
