In Beaumont, Texas at Ozen High School, teacher Mary Hastings was arrested on April 8th after a video surfaced of her physically assaulting one of her students.

The Beaumont Texas School District released a statement taking a strong stance against child abuse of any kind and placed the teacher on administrative leave immediately after removing her from the classroom and school grounds.There are so many things wrong with this on so many levels, and all of them are common sense that any educator in any setting should understand and always remember. This comes days after another video showed a woman knocking over a pre-schooler, she has since resigned from her position and turned herself in.

Mary Hastings was taken into custody on a single assault charge and released on bail in the same day, as reported by the Jefferson County Sherrif’s office.
