Video: Mississippi teacher slams student to ground

A teacher in Mississippi slams a student to the ground during school hours.

WKBN would like to warn its viewers that the video might be graphic to some

JACKSON, Miss. (WJTV) – A video showing a man slamming a child to the ground near Jim Hill High School in Mississippi is circling social media.

Jackson Public School District held a meeting about the incident Friday afternoon.

Authorities with the school describe the video as disturbing. It was taken during school hours outside of the high school.

WJTV was told the student was being aggressive, and campus enforcement was on scene to get the student under control. That’s when authorities say a teacher injected himself into the situation, and slammed the student on the ground.

Authorities say it was uncalled for and those actions are not permitted.

The investigation is still ongoing, but authorities with Jackson Public School recommend that the teacher be fired.

There is no word on the condition of the student.
