GREENVILLE, Miss. (AP) — A unnamed Mississippi Delta teacher has been fired following a video showing her yelling at a student.
The Delta Democrat-Times reports the student has filed assault charges with the Greenville Police Department. Under state law, a judge must determine probable cause before a teacher can be prosecuted.
The April 19 video shows a Greenville High School student and the teacher arguing during class. It's unclear what's going on because the video is blurry, but the teacher uses inappropriate language.
Superintendent Janice Page-Johnson confirms the teacher was fired after an in-house investigation.
The district fired teacher Linda Winters-Johnson in 2016 after videos showed her dragging a special education student by the hair and striking the student with a cup.
The state barred Winters-Johnson from teaching for 12 years.
