A high school history teacher has been suspended after a video showing him ‘inappropriately’ touching a female student emerged online.
In the video, filmed on Monday, Travis Holland can be seen rubbing his hand up and down the back of a teenage girl in a classroom at Eagleville High School.
The video then seems to show the Illinois teacher’s hand slowly move down towards her lower back, then across to her waist.
The teacher, who is also the baseball coach at Eagleville High School has since been suspended without pay, after the video was brought to the attention of the Rutherford County School District, officials have said.
However, the student’s parents have spoken out to explain Holland was comforting their daughter after a family bereavement.
Meanwhile, a concerned parent of another child at Eagleville claimed a number of students have previously filed complaints against Holland, citing instances of inappropriate touching to Fox17.
