Teacher suspended after footage showed her lifting boy, 6, by the neck

An Ohio kindergarten teacher has been suspended for ten days after surveillance video appeared to show her grabbing a six-year-old boy by his neck.

The boy's parents, Anthony and Autumn Nelson, were shocked at the school's response to the footage, which showed their son Ian being lifted off the ground by his shirt collar.

Teacher Barb Williams was put on unpaid leave, but the Nelsons are calling on her to be fired from the school district where she has taught for 14 years.

Fire her

She should not be allowed around children ever again. Maybe she could be a good warehouse clerk. I wouldn't allow her to be a corrections worker.
