A teacher is back on the job after dragging a 6-year-old boy down a school hallway in Kentucky.

Surveillance video shows teacher Ashley Silas dragging the first grader to the principal’s office. Silas said the boy refused to walk on his own after being disruptive and threatening another student.

Silas was fired after the incident, but she filed an appeal. She told a review board that she wasn’t hurting the boy and that he, “enjoyed” sliding down the hall.

The review board reduced the teacher’s punishment to a suspension.

An attorney for the school said they didn’t want to hire Silas back, but the appeals systems left them no choice.
