Teacher Accused of Kicking Student Transferred

A teacher accused of kicking a student at Bartlett Middle School in Chatham County has been transferred to another school in the district. WTOC has learned the teacher has been reassigned to Beach High School.

Two weeks ago, the teacher was accused of kicking 14-year-old Karina Mims and throwing a chair at her. Karina's mother tells WTOC that she will take legal action because she doesn't feel transferring the teacher is an appropriate punishment.
