Bainbridge, GA - Allegations of teacher misconduct at a Georgia school has some parents upset.
A letter sent to the Georgia Department of Education claims a teacher at Bainbridge High School used threathening remarks towards two students. The Decatur County Superintendent says the state forwarded him the letter last night.
He says they take any situation like this seriously, but he doesn't believe any criminal act occurred based on the information he received. We spoke with the parent, Erica Jackson, who voiced her concerns to the district, school leaders, and WCTV.
Erica Jackson: "Our children did real good in this situation because they went through the system to make it right, they went to their assistant principal and said this is what we are supposed to do, this is what we are going to do and guess what, our system failed those children."
Even though Jackson's children are no longer are in school, she says she felt compelled to speak out for the other parents. The superintendent says they are looking into the incident. He did not comment on whether any action was taken against the teacher.
