When I first read this article I was shocked that a teacher would perform an incident of this kind. That being said, I also had many questions I felt the article left out. My questions are concerning why Bray would randomly attack a student, and if there were witnesses that seen the attack. It says in the above article that Bray grabbed the student from behind, straddled her, and then hit the student in the arm area, but it doesn’t say why he did this. I understand that some articles can only state a certain amount of facts as they can, but the article doesn’t give enough information as I wanted after reading it. Another article I found over Bray’s attack states that he performed this attack because he was mad the student didn’t hit the volleyball in gym class. It also states that this happened in front of the whole class. You can find this information from an article on website http://www.wkrn.com/story/23651603/pe-teacher-investigated-for-assault-on-student .
In my opinion I believe Bray should have his teaching license taken away from him. There is absolutely no reason for a teacher to put their hands on a student in any aggressive way. The teacher was also the school’s wrestling coach, and reading how he attacked the student, it sounds like moves from the sport. No child should have this happen to them at school. School should be a safe place for kids to be at. I think Bray should lose his job and not be allowed on a school’s property again. High school is about having fun and being around your friends. It also is about having good memories about loving teachers, and now this incident will haunt this particular student for life.
