A video has been made public allegedly showing a principal dragging two young students down an elementary school hallway in Connecticut.
Tisdale School principal Carmen Perez Dickson is apparently seen dragging two unnamed kindergarteners on different dates occurring in the Spring of 2012, reports The Blaze.
The incident was investigated by the Board of Education, and Dickson was suspended for six months.
Sandra Kase, chief administrative officer for Bridgeport schools, recommended Dickson be fired, reports NBC.
"The board did not exactly agree with us, so the action that was taken was not what we recommended. If I saw the same evidence and saw the same video today, we'd support the same recommendation we made at the time," Kase said.
Leticia Colon, a school board member, voted for Dickson to be fired.
"Children go to school to learn and to be respected and we are an example. And if we start to bully, then we can't expect much from these children. They will learn to bully others," Colon said.
Dickson’s attorney claims that her client’s actions were “within Board of Education policy guidelines in using reasonable force.”
The six-month suspension of Dickson ends next month and she will not return as principal of Tisdale School.
