Teacher's Aide Abuses Student

A teaching assistant in Oakland, California was videotaped while abusing a third grader. The school, Tobinworld II, is a special-needs school in the Oakland Unified School District. The 9-year-old boy told his grandmother that he pulled the teacher’s hair, and the woman then put her elbow on top of the student’s neck and began slapping him. Another teacher can be seen in the video watching the attack and laughing. The 26-year-old teacher is in custody at the county jail on $100,000 bail.
