Teacher Arrested For Asking Why Superintendent Got A Raise

She was taken outside by a police officer, handcuffed, and arrested for resisting arrest.

In emotional form, a Louisiana center teacher was expelled from a school executive gathering in binds Monday night after she stood up about educator pay. She is heard reacting: "I am not - you just pushed me to the floor".

After continuing to criticize the board, Hargrave had been asked to leave and was escorted into the hallway where the incident occurred. I don't care if the performance targets are met - you're making our jobs even more hard. The Constitution prohibits the government from punishing or retaliating against people for expressing their views, and the fact that a schoolteacher was arrested at a public meeting of the school board is especially troubling.

KATC reports that following Hargrave's comments, board president Anthony Fontana ruled that she was out of order and warned her that the public comment section was not a question-and-answer session.

It was then that the engagement happened, in what seemed, by all accounts, to be a passage, while the cameras rolled. Ms Hargrave did not appear to be raising her voice during the meeting.

It remains unclear whether the marshal was acting on his own accord or on orders of the board members, according to KATC. The representative marshal is a school asset officer who works in Vermilion Parish schools.

The Daily Mail reported school officials said there would be no charges against the teacher, from Rene Rost Middle School in Kaplan.

An hour after the meeting was over, Puyau said no charges will be filed against Hargrave. An instructor's union legal counselor is researching.

The Vermillion Parish schools referred questions to Fontana, who did not immediately respond to Fox News' request for comment. After being called on a second time, a city marshal stepped in.
