Video: footage shows principal dragging kindergartners down hallway
A Connecticut school principal was suspended after a video of her dragging two kindergarten students down the school’s hallway surfaced.
Tisdale School Principal Carmen Perez Dickson allegedly exposed the students to the inappropriate behavior in the spring of 2012.
The videos, made public this week, show Tisdale School principal Carmen Perez Dickson dragging two kindergartners through the halls on different occasions, according to Sandra Kase, chief administrative officer for Bridgeport schools.
The Board of Education investigated the incidents, and in October 2013 it voted to suspend Dickson for six months, rather than fire her, something [Connecticut schools administrator Sandra] Kase had recommended.
Watch the video:
Board members were divided on the punishment for Dickson. Her attorney said her client’s actions were within the Board of Education’s guidelines for discipline, and that she used reasonable force.
Dickson will return from her suspension next month.
Thoughts on the incident?
Was a six-month suspension reasonable?
