HANCOCK COUNTY, Ohio  – An Ohio teacher who was caught on camera violently grabbing a child by his face and pinning him against a wall will face a mere 10-day suspension.

The video provided to WLBT by the child’s parents shows Ian, 6, walking from the bathroom and confronted by her teacher, Barb Williams. She proceeds to bully the young boy and at one point, she picks him by his shirt.

Ian suffered a bruise on the back of his head.

The result of her disciplinary technique: a light 10-day suspension given to her on Tuesday.

Anthony Nelson, Ian’s father, told CNN, “We thought it was just a little incident that happened, and that’s what the school made it out to sound like. And then all of a sudden we get this video today and this is just outrageous.”

The parents of Ian say that the teacher’s suspension will give her a early head start on her vacation since there only a couple days of school left. They plan on seeking criminal charges against the teacher.

    No one is allowed to discipline these kids anymore. The kids know, and know what to say, to get away with whatever they want. Simply saying "no" isn't enough. Cops and security guards are not in schools and on buses because these kids are so well behaved.

    If you teach your children to respect others and obey the rules your child wouldn't be involved in this to begin with!!

    Physically attacking a child is not ‘discipline’, nor is it permissible. Otherwise, a lot more people would be ‘disciplining’ strangers’ children on planes, in restaurants, etc.
