New details released in Standard Middle School teacher battery case
BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KBAK/KBFX) —
A sixth-grade teacher at Standard Middle School in Oildale has been charged on two misdemeanor counts of battery on a person.
Shannon Robinson allegedly struck two students, according to court documents.
Several students accused her of using foul language and calling them vile names in class, the documents state.
Two different students told law enforcement that Robinson struck them – one on the back on Oct. 18 and the other on the arm on Nov. 1.
Robinson declined while under Miranda warning to comment on the name calling and hostile behavior, but said, “Not true,” to the allegations that she hit two students, according to the document.
She was arrested in November and charges were filed Jan. 4.
Robinson was placed on paid administrative leave pending the outcome of the case.
Standard School District issued a statement in November:
Our students and parents can rest assured that the safety of our students is of the utmost importance and we will not tolerate any altercations between staff and students. We will continue to work closely with law enforcement as the legal process moves forward.
