Teacher Accused of Abusing Student Acquitted

A Haifa courthouse acquitted a 50-year-old teacher accused of attacking a 13-year-old student. The student had complained nine days after an alleged incident during which the teacher reportedly pushed a desk at the teen and threw a notebook at her head.

The court acquitted the teacher, claiming that the prosecuting youth is “A manipulative teenager,” and that her words be taken “With a grain of salt.”
