TUSCALOOSA COUNTY, ALABAMA: Accusations of child abuse have been filed against Mandy Munoz, an elementary school teacher's assistant in Alabama, after she was seen on security footage tossing a 4-year-old kid by his leg. A one-count charge of child abuse was brought against Munoz, who is a teacher's assistant at Lake View Elementary School in Tuscaloosa County, on Friday, September 30.

The lawsuit against Munoz was filed in Tuscaloosa County District Court. It claims that Munoz grabbed the 4-year-old child by the arm and slung him to the other side of her before grabbing his leg and "slinging him 6 feet across the room." The principal of the elementary school was allegedly informed by Munoz that she "just snapped from dealing with" the boy. The entire incident was documented on school security tape, according to the lawsuit.

Munoz was subsequently charged with one count of child abuse, a Class C felony, following an investigation by the Tuscaloosa County Sheriff's Office. Munoz was fired before charges were brought against her, a spokesperson for Tuscaloosa County Schools told the Tuscaloosa Thread.

Terri Brewer, the spokesperson, said, "Mandy Munoz’s employment as a teacher’s assistant at Lake View Elementary was terminated on Monday, September 26. The Tuscaloosa County School System has and will cooperate with any law enforcement investigation regarding this situation." "Due to laws that protect the privacy of students, the Tuscaloosa County School System is unable to discuss publicly any details of the situation. The safety of our students is the highest priority of the Tuscaloosa County School System," Brewer concluded.

Elementary schools have always been stringent in their response to any abuse. MEAWW earlier reported another suspension case that occurred in late September when a fourth-grade teacher claimed that her classroom was "built for non-white students" in a video posted to Twitter.

In the video, the teacher, whose name has been withheld said, "For the first time in my life I am teaching at a majority white school and I'm kind of interested to see how students and parents react to my classroom or if they even notice anything about it because it's built for non-white students. If you look around and you interact with some of the materials I have, you'll notice there's no white kids represented."

Ever since the August release of the video of her discussing her new role, she has been suspended from William Penn Elementary School in Mill Creek, Utah. "It is inappropriate for any employee to make students feel unwelcome in any way, shape, or form," the principal of William Penn Elementary School declared after viewing the teacher's statement on her Twitter video.

Surprisingly, a thorough investigation revealed that the teacher had not broken any laws. The investigation found no indication of discrimination in the employee's students or in her own classroom; she stated those things in private, where she has the right to free speech. Since there were no "policy or legal violations" found during the investigation, the teacher will be permitted to maintain her job and is probably going to be transferred to another school in the same district.
