NBC NATIONAL NEWS — A Fresno, California teacher is accused of resorting to extreme measures to discipline one of her 5th grade students for acting up in class, and now the student's family wants the teacher disciplined for her behavior.
The family says the student was tied up everyday at school last week.
They're calling it child abuse.
"You don't tie up a child and take it to that extreme measure, because she humiliated him in front of the whole class," says Rosanna Salinas, the boy's aunt and legal guardian.
She says he now has a hard time showing his face at school because of what happened.
Her nephew had been acting up in class, and wouldn't sit down.
Salinas found out how he'd been disciplined when the teacher called and told her last Friday.
