Police say the mother of an 11-year-old student at Renaissance Academy in La Porte came in to their station to report that her child had been hit by a teacher.

According to the police report, the teacher supposedly slapped the student in the back of the head during class for not paying attention.

The mother told police she was unable to speak with the teacher but was able to talk with the school's principal who seemed to dismiss the event and allegedly told the mother that the teacher didn't even hit him that hard.

Police say that no visible marks or other signs of injury were seen on the child; however, they are currently investigating into the case and looking to interview the suspected teacher.
