Parents protest against administrator charged with child abuse

(WMC-TV) - A Tennessee principal is in hot water after being charged for excessively spanking a child with a paddle. Angry parents are protesting against Penny Boyd, former Morgan County elementary school principal.

Boyd is currently out on bond on child abuse charges. Those charges came after a parent filed a complaint about her using severe corporal punishment against her son.

One would think the charges would have cost Boyd her job – wrong! After being charged, she was moved to another middle school and given an assistant principal position.

This is what sparked the protest from parents. And they are now calling for Boyd's termination..
