Mother demands answers after son's alleged assault at school


Tanisha Davis was shocked to hear that her 11-year-old son had been reportedly pinched and had his ear pulled by a substitute teacher at Baker Middle School. Davis says this happened last month ago she's still waiting for answers.

"The next day, I went and filed my report and everything and ever since that day I haven't heard anything about it. They told me that DFACS would have to investigate and take 30 days," Davis said.

We reached out to the Muscogee County School District about the alleged incident and they said, "the proper steps were taken by the school principal in reporting the alleged incident to the Department of Family and Children Services, the school security, and police."

School officials also say the employee involved in the incident is still employed with the district while the investigation continues.

"I thought school should be the safest place to be. It's bad enough I have to worry about his peers picking on him but it's his teacher. I shouldn't have to worry about that," Davis says.

Davis told us that she's made numerous calls to the school and school board but has yet to get a response. She says to her knowledge this isn't the first time that this particular employee has been in trouble. She wants to make sure that no other students have the same problem.

"I want that teacher to be fired because he has no right to put his hands on my child," she says.
