Florida Elementary School Principal Under Investigation For Paddling Student

A Clewiston, Florida elementary school principal is under investigation for paddling a 6-year-old student that caused damage to a computer.

Central Elementary School Principal Melissa Carter is now being investigated by the Clewiston Police Department and the Department of Children and Families. According to WINK News, the school district does not allow corporal punishment as a means of discipline, which is still legal in the state of Florida. 

The incident happened on April 13 in front of the child’s mother. The mother, who is not being identified, videotaped the paddling. “I never hit her,” the woman said to the outlet about her daughter. 

Following the punishment, the child’s mother took her to the doctor to document the red marks and bruising left by the paddle. But, she worries about the psychological effects her daughter suffered. 

“I’m going to get justice for my daughter because if I could not do it in front of her, I’m going to do it with justice,” the kid’s mother said.
