Carmen Perez Dickson : Principal Remains on Suspension For Dragging Video

Videotapes that show suspended Principal Carmen Perez Dickson dragging children through the hallways of Tisdale School have surfaced weeks before the embattled administrator is set to return to the district.

A parent reportedly gave the videos to News 12 Connecticut, which began airing the videos Friday.

The video was reportedly filmed in spring 2012, and the state’s Board of Education launched an investigation into the incidents, ultimately voting to suspend her for six months last October. But Sandra Kase, the Chief Administrative Officer of Bridgeport Public Schools, recommended they fire Dickson, and the parent of one of the children allegedly shown in the video agrees.

“After seeing the videos, she dragged my daughter like she was some kind of animal,” Nakeya Hargrove, the mother of a then 5-year-old girl shown getting dragged by her feet, told ABC News. “Who in their right mind let a principal go back to any school in Bridgeport and be a principal again?”

Dickson will return to the district next month, but she will reportedly be placed in an administrative job. Kase says she should have lost her job for good. “Principals are supposed to be protectors of children, they’re not supposed to hurt children,” she said. Dickson’s attorney maintains the principal was operating within Board of Education policy.
