A teacher and coach in Texas is on leave after punishing students by forcing them to do bear crawls on the schools track.The teacher in question, allegedly punished the whole class after some students were late, and or skipped class.

According to reports (and the students hands), science teacher and girls basketball coach Jazzmin Smith, has been placed on leave since the incident occurred. As you can see in the video above, the hands of these 7th and 8th grade students are bruised, cut up, and blistered.

The school district released the following statement,

 

'Clute Intermediate School science teacher and girls basketball coach, Jazzmin Smith, has been placed on administrative leave pending an investigation regarding an incident within the girl’s basketball team. Brazosport ISD has high expectations for all employees; and all allegations are taken seriously and investigated to ensure the safety of our students.'

I am doubtful this woman will return to the school, but who the hell knows anymore. I don't have kids, but if I did I would be furious, and most likely pressing charges like one of the mothers in the news piece. What would you do? Feel free to share your thoughts on this.
