Houston teacher Sheri Davis has attained a degree of infamy after the release of a videotape showing her beating a 13-year-old student in front of her classroom.
She has been terminated from employment.
Davis, 40, taught at the Jamie’s House Charter School. She is a science teacher but has no teaching certificate.
The interesting question is the potential school liability in the hiring and supervision of Davis. The school will argue that this is obviously outside the scope of employment and outside the policies of the school system.
UPDATE: As expected, the family is suing the school district, here.
