Valerie Ragsdale, a teacher at Ben Franklin Science Academy, is on administrative leave, according to a press release sent out by the Muskogee Public Schools, after she allegedly slapped a student on Monday.

“When the District first became aware of the incident, the district promptly started an investigation of the matter by our campus police and site administration. This investigation is on-going,” the release states.

“We are sending this case to the district attorney today,” Superintendent Mike Garde said this morning.

On the MuskogeeNOW Facebook page, numerous parents of other students have stated that Ragsdale has frequently been “physical” with students. Conversely, numerous others have stated she is an exemplary teacher.

As of this morning, District Attorney Orvil Loge had received no information about the case, which the schools said was a “personnel matter,” and therefore would release no more information.
