HOUSTON, Texas (KPRC) – A Houston, Texas school employee is accused of kicking a kindergartner in the face and leaving him with bruises.
The student attends Golfcrest Elementary School. His mother is angered by what she claims that faculty member did to her son.
“I was crying, I was nervous, I was mad,” said the child’s mother, who did not want to be identified.
She said her 5-year-old was on the playground when he brushed the faculty member’s leg. That’s when the boy says the faculty member lifted his foot and kicked him in the face.
“The only thing I want is the employee never working in any school,” the mother said.
The Houston Independent School District acknowledges it is investigating the incident. In the meantime, the faculty member has been temporarily reassigned.
