Louisiana teacher removed from school board meeting in handcuffs

Louisiana teacher removed from school board meeting in handcuffs

A Louisiana teacher was forcibly removed from a school board meeting and arrested after saying that pay raises for leadership on the board was a "slap in the face" to all teachers.

Deyshia Hargrave, a middle school teacher in the Vermilion Parish school system, was videotaped being escorted out of a room and then wrestled into handcuffs by a city marshal on January 8.

The station says the teacher had addressed the board about teacher salaries and raises, and school board president Anthony Fontana at one point ruled her "out of order". Though, after the first time she was called upon, board members did answer some of her questions.

However, immediately after Hargrave stepped out of the meeting, the city marshal aggressively wrestled the teacher to the ground, slapped handcuffs on her, and forced her out of the building.

The officer, an Abbeville city marshal, demands she "stop resisting" and she states, "I am not, you just pushed me to the floor".

Superintendent Jerome Puyau reportedly told KATC that no charges were filed against the teacher.

She is now out on bond.

Mr Payou's contract was extended for three years by the board during that meeting and includes incentives for performance.

Teacher Deyshia Hargrave spoke up during public comment and said, "You're making our jobs more hard".

As an organization that advocates for the dedicated school employees of Louisiana, we firmly denounce the mistreatment of Ms. Hargrave, a loving parent and dedicated teacher serving the students of Vermilion Parish.

It remains unclear whether the marshal was acting on his own accord or on orders of the board members, according to KATC. Ms Hargrave did not appear to be raising her voice during the meeting.

"What happened here tonight; the way that females are treated in Vermilion Parish, I have never seen a man removed from this room".

Hargrave was booked into the Abbeville City Jail on Monday evening for the charges of resisting an officer and remaining on premises after being forbidden there, arrest records show.

The 74 was unable to reach the marshal's office or the school district Tuesday morning.
