Parents Outraged After Secret Video Shows Teacher Acting Inappropriately
Parents in the Rutherford County School district are furious after a video surfaced showing a teacher rubbing his arm up and down the back of a female teen student. The Eagleville High School has been suspended until an investigation into the matter is concluded.
The school district sent the following statement to Fox 17 Nashville.
“We were notified yesterday of the video and did an initial review, but then deferred to law enforcement and DCS for their review. We have now heard back from both agencies and they are not pursuing any further investigation. However, the school district has suspended the employee without pay pending the outcome of a district investigation.”
The video, shown below, seems to have been secretly filmed by a student. Other students can be heard talking amongst themselves while the events unfold.
