BRANDON, Miss. (AP) — A Brandon Middle School teacher is on suspension after what school district officials are referring to as a "disciplinary issue."
Angela Smith tells The Clarion-Ledger (http://on.thec-l.com/142uzEq ) her eighth grade son was shoved on Tuesday by information and communication technology teacher Terry Williams after he was caught tossing a piece of candy across the room.
Smith said Williams told her son to go to the principal's office. She says her son stopped at the water fountain on the way to the principal's office, and the teacher came out and started yelling at him. The teacher then grabbed him by the shirt and bumped him with his chest.
The Rankin County School District said appropriate disciplinary actions had been taken.
The newspaper reports Williams could not be reached for comment.
