According to Chelsea Hoffman on Gather,
A Malibu high is in some hot water after slapping a ninth grade several times for forgetting her homework. Sources are not revealing the name or even the gender of the person responsible for this, which is absolutely unforgivable if you want to know the honest truth. The public should be made aware of this person's identity so that they can know to avoid any school that employs them! The way this looks, the school is protecting a reckless person who lays his or her hands on the underage students under the supervision of the school system. That's unforgivable.
Ninth grade student Dionne Evans claims that she forget her homework on May 22nd. Instead of just giving the kid a failing grade for the day like any other normal person would do, this genius hired by the Malibu school system made Dionne walk to the front of the class for what became a form of humiliating punishment. The educator (and that term is used loosely) asked the child if she had seen the movie "Bridesmaids," before allegedly slapping her in the face up to six times. This is believed to have been a mock-up of a scene in the flick in which a woman tries to literally slap sense into another woman. To be honest, the movie was not that great and for someone to think it was good enough to mimic in this fashion just screams immaturity andinstability.
It's probably to say that the teen is not lying because the accused has written an apology letter to her and her family. This isn't enough, however, because the family is suing the educator in court. The attorney representing Dionne Evans claims that the teen has not returned to the classroom and is instead doing her for the class in the school library. Does this mean the teacher responsible for the attack is not fired or even suspended? This person is still being permitted to children after allegedly slapping a ninth grader in the face over forgetting her homework?
If it was a joke, it's not funny, especially since Dionne is not taking it as a joke. Obviously the victim of the attack should be the decider in whether or not this was a case of comical antics. Obviously the kid would know whether she was frightened or in pain, and apparently she was traumatized in some way by this idiot employed by the school.
