A school teacher has been filmed forcefully whacking a six-year-old girl with a wooden paddle over ‘$50 worth of damage to a classroom computer’.

Melissa Carter, head of the Central Elementary School in Clewiston, Florida, may face criminal charges after being allegedly caught on camera bending the schoolgirl over and repeatedly beating her backside. The principal was filmed hitting the student, who can be heard crying, by the girl’s mother who said she hid her phone in her purse to capture the disturbing encounter.

The unnamed mother said she was called by the school on April 13 because her daughter had apparently damaged a computer, reports WINK-TV.

But when she turned up at the school to discuss the matter, the mother said she was sent to the principal’s office where she found Carter and a school clerk with her daughter.

Speaking to WINK-TV, she said: ‘the principal started to scream.

‘The hatred with which she hit my daughter, I mean it was a hatred that, really I’ve never hit my daughter like she hit her.

‘I had never hit her.’

She added that she decided to hide her phone and capture the alleged abuse against her daughter to expose the school for other parents, and so she had physical proof to take to the authorities.

The mom explained: ‘Nobody would have believed me.

‘I sacrificed my daughter, so all parents can realize what’s happening in this school.’

The mother’s smartphone footage showed a school official, allegedly Carter, holding a wooden paddle while one of her colleagues pins the schoolgirl to a table.

Carter is then seen pulling the girl’s jumper up to expose her backside before unleashing at least three hard beating to the girl’s behind, according to the video.

The mother said she took her daughter to a doctor later that day to record the red marks and bruises that were apparently caused by the paddle.

‘I’m going to get justice for my daughter because if I could not do it in front of her, I’m going to do it with justice’, she said.

The Clewiston Police Department and the Department of Children and Families have said they have launched an investigating into the incident and the State Attorney’s Office is considering bringing criminal charges against Carter and the clerk, according to Bret Provinsky, a lawyer for the family.

‘That’s aggravated battery’, said Provinsky.

He added: ‘They’re using a weapon that can cause severe physical, harm.

‘The child is terrified, she feels vulnerable. There’s nothing she can do in the hands of these adults, who treated her so brutally, savagely, sadistically’.

Neither Carter or the school district returned requests for comment from WINK-TV, the outlet said.
