Principal Of LeBron James’ School Resigns After Allegedly Slapping 11-Year-Old Student

Principal Brandi Davis of LeBron James’ I Promise School is calling it quits following a bit of a scandal.

An ongoing investigation was launched into Principal Brandi Davis back in September after she was accused of slapping an 11-year-old student in the face for cussing. The mother of the victim released a statement to The Beacon Journal after the incident, claiming that her son “had a busted lip and was bleeding.”

The student was reportedly wearing a mask over his face when Principal Davis allegedly slapped him.

The school released a statement following the incident detailing their commitment to the Akron education system and their “We Are Family” philosophy that strongly believes a student’s entire support system should be involved in the education process.

“We are family, and that means we support every one of our I PROMISE educators, students, and family members through anything they may be going through,” the statement said. “In this and in every case, we will always do everything we can to make sure all are loved and supported during these times as we learn and grow as a family.”

LeBron James has yet to comment on the situation:


The investigation results are currently pending, but Davis could face more repercussions according to the New York Post.
