Video evidence gets teacher fired

It's a question a mother doesn't expect to get from her 13-year-old son after school: What happens to a teacher who beats up a student?

But Isaiah Reagins, a sixth-grader at Jamie's House Charter School in north Harris County, had good reason to ask. According to his mom and a cell phone video that apparently captured the incident, a female science teacher dragged him by the legs across the floor, slapped his face repeatedly, kicked his back at least twice and slammed his head against a wall.

“He said, ‘Mama, a teacher jumped on me,' ” the boy's mom, Alesha Johnson, recalled in a phone interview Tuesday. “He said, ‘I have a knot on my head.' ”

Johnson said her son also had a faint black eye and bruises on his sides.
