Bullshit IMO. Sure, the student maybe acted like a prick, but the principals reaction is uncalled for. Does the school have the right to physically restrain students? Throwing the guy and holding him in that nelson looks like assault to me.
Ken Fells, a 15-year employee of the Halifax Regional School Board, was removed from his post at Graham Creighton junior high school in Cherry Brook, N.S., after an altercation with a student on March 3.
The young male student allegedly took "inappropriate" photos of a female student on his cellphone, then refused to turn it over to teachers. When Fells was called over, the student again refused to comply and attempted to take off down the hall, causing the principal to forcibly stop him.
The school board has remained mum on Fells' case and the incident, calling it a "personnel matter," but details have trickled out through parents and students.
Last week, the board voted to shuffle the veteran educator out of that role, but did not fire him.
The RCMP has previously said it will not lay any charges.
