A Georgia woman said her grandson's teacher made him hang by his belt from the top of a chalkboard as punishment.
Tracy Davis told WSB-TV that on Thursday, the principal at Shoal Creek Elementary School in Conyers found her 5-year-old grandson — who has special needs — hanging from a chalkboard. The principal said the boy was screaming and in distress.
Davis said the state Division of Family and Children Services interviewed the boy and learned this wasn't the first time the teacher had done this. She said the school told her it's disciplining two teachers and a paraprofessional because of the incident.
