Principal Suspended During Investigation of Teacher

CORPUS CHRISTI - We have an update to a story you saw exclusively on KRIS 6 News concerning accusations of student mistreatment at the hands of a veteran teacher.

Today, the principal at the Early Childhood Development Center was suspended with pay. This comes after someone provided KRIS 6 News with undercover video showing a teacher in the pre-K class manhandling 3 and 4 year old students.

The district suspended the teacher last week after they were shown the video. She has decades of experience in the classroom. Parents of current and past students also came forward with concerns that their complaints about the teacher were ignored.

Several parents hoped to meet with the superintendent to complain today. Administrators helped guide them through the process of filing a formal complaint.

The parents also hope to visit with police to find out about any potential criminal charges.
