Three educators in Georgia have been placed on administrative leave after they allegedly suspended a special needs student from a chalkboard by his belt.
"He was in distress, because he was screaming and hollering. ... He was scared, and he's only five, and he's hanging from the top of a blackboard?" Tracy Davis told WJBF.
Davis told local media outlets that her 5-year-old grandson was found hanging from a hook on top of the blackboard at Shoal Creek Elementary School. The child was part of a special needs class of six people, supervised by one teacher and two assistants.
