Video shows teacher kicking student at South Carolina elementary school
BERKELEY COUNTY, S.C. (WCIV) - A Goose Creek Elementary School teacher no longer works for the Berkeley County School District in South Carolina after she kicked a student, officials confirm.
Tierra Walker kicked a student after she'd removed the boy from her class on Oct. 4, 2018, school surveillance video shows.
A school district representative Katie Tanner confirmed Wednesday Walker is no longer employed by Berkeley County schools.
According to Maj. John Grainger with Goose Creek Police, students say Walker dumped the 11-year-old boy out of his chair for being disruptive during class, dragged the boy out of the room, then kicked his leg out of the classroom doorway.
Surveillance video shows the boy on the floor in the hallway, and shows him being kicked just before the classroom door is shut.
Police say students who witnessed the incident told them the boy was asked to leave the room because he was not listening in class and making animal noises.
The boy reportedly refused to leave the room, leading Walker to forcibly remove him, according to police.
No assault charges will be filed against Walker over the incident, police say.
