Abusive Preschool Teacher Caught On Camera, Immediately Dismissed By Administration

When parents send their young children to day care or preschool, they expect that they can trust the teachers and administration have their babies' best interest at heart.

So when news broke that an Ohio teacher was photographed dragging a young child down the hall by the arm, parents were livid!

CNN reports that the teacher worked out of a Youngston school employed by Alta Care Group, a non-profit company that provides early education.

The unidentified teacher was spotted by a colleague who witnessed the child being dragged by their arm. The employee snapped the photo and then alerted the school's administrators.

Youngstown City Schools spokeswoman Denise Dick tells CBS news that the offending teacher was instructed not to return the following day.

Although the teacher and student were not named, it has been confirmed that the student was in the Head Start program, a government funded program for children between the ages of 3 and 5 years old.

According to Joseph Shorokey, Alta's CEO, the individual was immediately terminated.

"I want to make sure it is clear that the individual who was terminated does not reflect the values of the dedicated and skilled professionals at Alta Head Start," he said.

Shorokey asks the public to consider this as an isolated incident that "should not be unfairly portrayed [the other employees] as anything less than fine teachers and aids."
