— A Halifax County teacher and her 16-year-old daughter were arrested Friday on charges that they assaulted a middle school student.

Lt. B.L. Martin said that the Halifax County Sheriff's Office received a complaint from a William R. Davie Middle school student that he had been assaulted by a teacher and her daughter inside a classroom.

Investigators charged Judy Green, 43, of Roanoke Rapids, and her daughter Ashlie Green with assault and battery. Bond information for them was not available.

Green was suspended with pay, said Keith Hoggard, a spokesman for Halifax County Schools.

The mother and daughter were scheduled to appear in court on Dec. 14.

    Suspended "with pay"? Are you kidding me?

    Last school year, a student threw a steel magnetic clip with enough force to cause extensive damage to my right wrist, which I had surgery on August 25, 2010. I followed protocol by filing my paperwork in a timely manner and waited for my workers compensation claim to be approved; however, my claim was disapproved by the insurance carrier (Corvel) for the school district. I don’t understand why my claim was denied? First of all on the date of my injury: the principal, the crisis intervention officer, and another administrator were out of the building. One of the assistant principals sent an email to all the teachers called, “Operation Pull Together”-which stated that all teachers need to be alert and to assist the substitute teachers in the building to keep the students out of the hall way and if any student are tardy-they shall be placed in school suspension. However, students arrived at my classroom seven minutes past the tardy bell and that is where the assault took place. W

    I was told by the former Principal Tonya Mewborn not to work because of the narcotics and she did not want my arm to be reinjured and she promised to me to place this in writing, so that I can report this to the North Carolina Industrial Commission. As for the statement by Assistant Principal Whitaker, he has been known to bribe students with a biscuit breakfast from Hardees, candy, and canned drinks from the faculty lounge- which he did actually state in a faculty meeting. In order for the students to get the rewards, they must do specific favors: Some students record teachers with their cellular phones either by video or audio and report to Assistant Principal Whitaker. Not only, were they for the assistant principal but also for their amusement because the male students were taking pictures of the female teacher’s rear ends. Speaking of teachers being recorded, there was an event when the former Principal at Southeast Halifax was video recorded in a verbal confrontation with anot

    Southeast Halifax High School has a zero tolerance for electronic devices on the school campus but they allowed certain and privileged students free reign to go undercover and report back to the Assistant Principal Whitaker. Several teachers have spoke about this in faculty meetings because they were in fear of their jobs, which is documented by the North Carolina Teacher Working Conditions Survey. Some of the teachers at Southeast Halifax High School are a wonderful group of people who strive for excellence for the children; however, the administration did recruit new teachers from outside the district and since they are not part of the clique they are shunned by the faculty and it creates a state of depression among the new teachers. Think about it, these teachers relocate not only to get a steady job, attempt to make an earnest living, but to enjoy enriching the lives of the students. I am not saying that all teachers and students are bad at Southeast Halifax High School but some o

    I would like to express my concerns about the incident and reporting practices with the Halifax County Public School System especially with Southeast Halifax High School. In a faculty meeting last year, it was stated by the former Principal Tonya Mewborn that Southeast Halifax High School was 426 out of 426 in the State Of North Carolina in student test scores. Last school year, a student threw a steel magnetic clip with enough force to cause extensive damage to my right wrist, which I had surgery on August 25, 2010. I followed protocol by filing my paperwork in a timely manner and waited for my workers compensation claim to be approved; however, my claim was disapproved by the insurance carrier (Corvel) for the school district.

    onecent......OMG... I have a special needs neice and the thought of ANYONE doing that to her or any other special needs child makes me furious!!
    And Lynchaliyah...I don't care If I know the whole story or not. A teacher assaulted a student (special needs student at that)...she deserves whatever she may get!!!!

    This was a special needs student, the teacher took his folder and ripped it up & threw it in the trash, well he wanted his folder back, so he got up to retrieve it from the trash, and she allegedly grabbed him by the throat and her daughter also allegedly grabbed him too! another teacher was present when all this took place & had to rescue the child from these two people, the child was taken to the office by the rescuing teacher, and NO ONE contacted the parents about this situation! the child was taken to the hospital and he had external & internal bruising on his throat. To me this is an outrage! how can a teacher do such a thing! I bet if the child grabbed her they couldn't dial the parents number fast enough!!!
