Teacher allegedly makes young boy punch another in the face

PORTLAND, Tenn. (WTVF) – A Sumner County Elementary School teacher has been suspended because of allegations she encouraged two young boys to fight.

Brandie Dobson is still trying to figure out exactly what happened to her 8-year-old son last week, after the Watt Hardison Elementary 2nd grader got into a fight with one of his friends.

The scuffle happened on the school bus, and Dobson admitted her son was a part of the fight.

"The little boy had pushed him and hit his brother and cousin. So he hit him back,” she said.

But the next day, she said one of their teachers decided the fight wasn't over. Dobson said the teacher allegedly took her son, his brother and the other little boy into an empty classroom, and with another teacher present, had them finish.

"She had told [sic.] the little boy to hit my son. I understand he hit him, she didn't feel like it was good enough to she had him hit him again in the face,” she explained Tuesday.
