Louisiana teacher handcuffed, taken from school board meeting


Superintendent Jerome Puyau reportedly told KATC that no charges were filed against the teacher.

A Louisiana teacher was handcuffed and escorted out of a school board meeting after she questioned the superintendent's $38,000 raise, according to KATC.

When the city marshal told her to not resist, she replied, "I am not!"

After Hargrave was removed, the board ultimately voted to approve Puyau's new contract.

"I have a serious issue with a superintendent or any person in a position of leadership getting any type of raise, I feel like it's a slap in the face for the teachers, the cafeteria workers or any other support staff we have", Hargrave is seen saying in the video posted to YouTube. After Hargrave posed several questions, board president Anthony Fontana ruled Hargrave out of order, warning her that the public comment section was not for a question-and-answer session.

This could force City to make their move, but Arsenal already have a price tag in mind they will have to reach. The injury to Gabriel Jesus is thought to have had an impact.

Ms Hargrave appeared to leave the meeting willingly after the officer approached her and asked her to do so, but in the hallway video showed that she was on the ground being handcuffed and asking "what are you doing?" repeatedly.

"Hold on, I am way smaller than you", the woman then said to the marshal as he shoved her toward an exit. While he did not witness everything that led to Hargrave's attest, he "absolutely" stood by the marshal, he said. It has directed all questions concerning the incident to the Vermilion Parish School Board.

"I don't think it needed to come to the extreme that it came to", she said.

After the board approved the raise, Hargrave was again recognized by the board and voiced her frustrations. She was, however, charged with "remaining after being forbidden" and "resisting an officer", both of which can be brought by a marshal, and do not require the school board's cooperation.

The National Education Association reported that Louisiana saw the largest decrease in average public school teacher salary between 2014 and 2015, with the average salary for the 2015-2016 school year coming out to approximately $47,000.
