A physics teacher was caught on camera telling a student ‘Somebody’s going to put a bullet right in your head’.
Physics teacher Paul Hagan was recorded by another student making the shocking remarks to the 17-year-old boy in his 11th grade class at Rockdale Career Academy in Conyers, Georgia, on November 3.
The boy’s disgusted mother April Carr shared the video on Facebook to try to have the 60-year-old teacher fired.
Rockdale Public Schools said it was investigating the footage.
Hagan has been placed on administrative leave in the meantime.
The footage sparked outrage among the community and has been viewed more than 25,000 times on Facebook.
‘As an educator myself…I must say that this teacher was totally out of line! He needs to be removed from the classroom immediately!’ said one critic.
‘overboard’, the student was most likely misbehaving to an extent which warranted his reaction.
