Corporal punishment at kindergarten: Teacher accused of hitting toddler
The mother of a 4-year-old girl recently pressed charges against a teacher. The woman told the police that the teacher had hit her daughter’s bottom and arm. The woman told the police that when she had picked up her daughter from school, the girl told her that the teacher had hit her on her bottom with a ruler and that she had cried in the classroom. When the mother heard this, she immediately inspected her daughter’s body and saw red marks on her left buttocks and right upper arm. Her daughter made it clear that she no longer wanted to go to school. The mother told the police that she had not given the teacher permission to hit her daughter. The girl who complained about pain at her bottom was referred to a doctor for medical treatment. The police have launched an investigation.
