I've been jacked up by High school teachers for misbehaving.. I see no problem with it when warranted for discipline,which is sorely lacking in schools do to lawyers,, but this child is to young and didn't do anything.
There is a huge difference between punishment and outright assault. A paddling is a long way from snatching up a child and slamming it against a wall.
Punishment is necessary sometimes, but assault isn't..ever.
law : the crime of trying or threatening to hurt someone physically
: a violent physical attack
: a military attack
Full Definition of ASSAULT
a : a violent physical or verbal attack
b : a military attack usually involving direct combat with enemy forces
c : a concerted effort (as to reach a goal or defeat an adversary)
a : a threat or attempt to inflict offensive physical contact or bodily harm on a person (as by lifting a fist in a threatening manner) that puts the person in immediate danger of or in apprehension of such harm or contact

When I was his age early 60's no teacher could ever touch a child only the Principal who could give you various counts of swats with a ruler. The teacher always sent you to the principle for punishment or a talking to, that way the teacher never was feared by the kids as that would make learning impossible for a kid.
The boy looked scared when he saw the Teacher so I do think this was about some previous thing, maybe he was told not to leave the classroom and she found him there, or he was just plain always scared of her, I do wonder why she took him back into the restroom. Was it about handwashing maybe.
Even though he's in a different classroom now, he's still afraid he's going to see her.
I hope handwashing was all that went on while they were out of sight.
Nelson says the district told him Ian was in trouble because he went to the wrong bathroom.
The Superintendent of Riverdale Local Schools says Williams has been a teacher in the district for 14 years.
"She has great evaluations,” says Eric Hoffman, the Superintendent of Riverdale Local Schools. “Parents request her."

Hard to tell what was going on without the whole story. Maybe the kid wandered off and was disciplined by an over zealous school staff member. After all, the school is responsible for all of their students.

I worked for a large public school system after retiring as a commercial pilot. It was appalling to things that goes on when the public isn't looking. The teacher in the video wouldn't have even gotten 10 days off had this video not gone public. Misconduct isn't as uncommon as you would think as it's mostly swept under the rug or hidden from view.
At the School for Creative and Performing Arts sexual contact with students was nearly commonplace. The last incident, that I'm aware, the principle impregnated a 17 year old student. No action was taken at that time but did not return the following year. There's many more events that took place during my tenure.
The best way to describe it was an "Educational Mafia."
there clearly is a problem here between the teacher and the student, that should have been dealt with.
I am surprised they are not demanding that the teacher in question, be arrested and subject to the full law, and including demanding that the school board do something, to prevent this from happening.
