San Antonio, Texas – A Texas teacher has been accused of ordering the organized slapping of a 6-year-old student in her class. As reported by ABC News, the mother of the student alleges the teacher ordered the slapping of her son, Aiden Neely, by 24-other students after he was accused of school bullying.
Amy Neely says she was not told of the incident until weeks after it had occurred. She is quoted in the report as stating, “He was hit on the head, in the face, on the back. And all the kids hit him twice…He had friends in that class, and friends didn’t want to hit him, but the teacher instructed them to hit him.”

Steve Linscomb, a spokesman for the district is quoted by ABC News as stating, “We are doing everything we can to make sure that these kinds of incidents don’t happen again.”
