5th grade teacher suspended for alleged use of force with students

Posted on Wednesday, July 6th, 2011    

A 5th grade teacher from Wisconsin was recently suspended from his job, and subsequently retired, after he was accused of using force with two of his students.

In May, the man allegedly grabbed the arms of two students who were walking down the hallway. The students complained, and the man was issued a letter that stated that he could not use force with students unless they are in “imminent danger.” The man was suspended from teaching during the 2011-2012 school year.

The man, who had worked in the school district for 31 years, decided to retire, rather than having his teaching license suspended.
