Mom Says Teacher Had Students Slap Her Son

ABC News' Ryan Owens reports:

A mother of a 6-year-old boy says her son was slapped by each of his classmates on the orders of their teacher as a form of discipline.

Aiden Neely was accused of being a bully at his school, Salinas Elementary School, near San Antonio, Texas. His kindergarten teacher came up with a creative way to put an end to the alleged bullying. The teacher is accused of having 24 other students in the class line up and slap Neely one-by-one.

"He was hit on the head, in the face, on the back. And all the kids hit him twice," said Amy Neely, the boy's mother. "He had friends in that class, and friends didn't want to hit him, but the teacher instructed them to hit him."

The incident occurred in early May, but Neely was not informed about it until weeks later when the principal called.

"The teacher told him not to tell us," said Neely. "My stomach was in knots. It was horrible."

The Judson Independent School District fired the teacher accused of hatching the most unusual anti-bullying lesson. She has been charged, along with another teacher who allegedly failed to report the incident, with a misdemeanor, according to the chief of the school district's police.

District officials have not identified either teacher.

"We are doing everything we can to make sure that these kinds of incidents don't happen again," said district spokesman Steve Linscomb.

The misdemeanor charge is official oppression. In Texas, it amounts to a public servant who misuses their position. It's not enough for Neely, who wants to make sure the teacher can never step foot inside another classroom again.

"I just want to make sure that she isn't able to teach again," said Neely. "I just want to make sure that justice is served for Aiden."

Yes, of course, because you learn not to hit by being hit by your entire class.

Glad she was fired and charged, another scary part is telling the child not to tell!

I hope that they don't get to teach again, unfortunately they will probably be protected and be able to work elsewhere.

 I don't see how getting kids to hit a bully will make him want to stop bullying.  I am glad that teacher and the one who witnessed it but said nothing are in trouble.
