A Georgia school teacher has been forced to resign after a surveillance video captured a shocking incident involving a special needs student.
The video shows a 4-year-old boy, who is a special need student, standing around an open classroom door when the teacher casually walks from behind and shoved her knee in the boys back without warning, causing him to lurch forward and to the ground. She then helps the boy up and seems to cover his mouth before giving him a shove into the classroom.
Amelia Stripling, a 20-year veteran of the Georgia school system and special needs instructor at Tift County Pre-K Center in Tifton, has stepped down after the video was released to the public.
The incident was reported to the division of family and children services Tifton County school officials said.
