Clewiston Central Elementary School Principal Melissa Carter is currently under investigation for paddling a student in front of the kid’s mom. The video was recorded by the child’s mother and was reported by WINK news.

The state attorney’s office is deciding whether to bring criminal charges against the Clewiston principal and Cecilia Self, the clerk who is also in the video. The incident happened on April 13th after the child damaged a computer. The Hendry County School District does not allow corporal punishment.
