BULLITT COUNTY, Ky. — A teacher in Kentucky has gotten her job back after being seen on surveillance video dragging a 6-year-old down a school hallway.
According to MyFoxPhilly, Ashley Silas was seen dragging the first grader nearly 160 feet on the floor through the school’s hallway.
She claims the boy had become disruptive in the classroom, and she was taking him to the school office.
Silas was fired right after the incident, but after she appealed the termination, she was issued a seven-week suspension without pay instead and brought back as a district-wide substitute.
The board that made the decision to reinstate Silas said she’d received inadequate training.
State Sen. Dan Seum is looking into the hiring/firing practices of teachers in light of the incident.
