Shocking Video Shows Elementary School Principal Aggressively Paddling 6-Year-Old Student

An elementary school principal in southwest Florida is being investigated after a video showed her paddling a 6-year-old student, WINK News reports.

Central Elementary School principal, Melissa Carter, and school clerk Cecilia Self were recorded by the student’s mother who captured the alleged paddling on camera.

The Paddling Punishment Was In Response to the Young Child ‘Scratching a Computer Screen.’

According to CBS This Morning’s David Begnaud, the first-grader was beaten three times for “allegedly scratching a computer screen.”

“This girl, age 6, is 3 ft tall, weighs 40lbs,” Begnaud added.

The 6-year-old’s mother claimed it all started when she went to the school to pay a fine for the damage her daughter was accused of doing to a computer, WINK News reports.

A police report obtained by the outlet said the first-grader’s mother mentioned paddling with her and a deputy present, but because of a language barrier, she didn’t understand the process correctly.

According to the mother, after she arrived at the school she was taken to the principal’s office where it was just herself, the principal, and a clerk in attendance.

She said that she felt that no one would believe her story about the paddling so she took out her phone and hit record. She explained that she felt she had “sacrificed my daughter, so all parents can realize what’s happening in this school.”
