The teacher, Sherri Davis, has since been fired from the charter school. Turns out she didn't have a teaching certificate, according to the Houston Chronicle, but she didn't need one anyway because of the school's charter status.
The law firm's announcement -- both the mother and the kid will be there!! -- praises the student "who courageously came forward with the video evidence" of the incident.
It doesn't quite praise her "for making our case a slam dunk," but then again it doesn't have to.
