Teacher fired after video shows her dragging student by hair

AP  |  Mississippi 

Officials in a Mississippi school district have fired a special education teacher after a video showed her dragging a special-needs student by her hair across the floor.

The Delta Democrat-Times reports the Greenville Public School District's Board of Trustees voted yesterday to terminate Linda Winters-Johnson.



The decision comes 11 days after the video began circulating on the Internet.

A state Office of Educator Misconduct investigator has accused Winters-Johnson of "grabbing, hitting in the head and dragging of a special-needs student during PE class at Greenville High School" around September 21.

The commission on November 4 will decide whether to suspend or revoke her special education teaching license.

Police have said they are investigating, but have filed no charges.
