A teacher named Trina Abrams from Wurtland Elementary School in eastern Kentucky was seen in a video dragging a 9-year old student through the hallway. The video is over a minute long, and shows Abrams pulling the boy out of the classroom and down multiple hallways. She can be heard yelling, “Get up!” and then pulling his body up while he refuses. The Greenup County School District was made aware of the teacher’s actions, and the Kentucky State Police conducted an investigation. Over two months after the incident that happened in October, the teacher was fired on Monday. The young boy’s stepfather, Calep Nelson said that the boy has been diagnosed with autism ADHD, PTSD, anxiety and depression and has limited speech. The boy’s mother is now sharing his story to help prevent incidents like this in the future.
