Some parents in Henderson County are very upset with the way their children have been allegedly treated by a elementary school gym teacher.

Brandy Austin told us the South Haven Elementary's physical education teacher, Shane Britt is a bully to the kids and she pulled her two boys out of the school last year because of it.

Since October, Britt's personnel file shows at least three occasions where he was reprimanded for the way he treats some students.

Another parent says Britt grabbed his 6th grader by the collar and slammed him against a wall. Britt has received written reprimand by the school's principal, but some parents think he should lose his job.

"When I went back and started asking questions and that sort of thing, there was lots of parents that had similar complaints, similar concerns," said Austin

We hoped to talk to Britt for his comments, however 7 Eyewitness News has been unable to make contact with him.
