A science teacher at a charter school in Houston was fired because of a cell phone video that showed her beating a 13-year-old.  It was taken by another student. Sheri Lynn Davis was fired Monday night after the principal looked at the video and said there's "no excuse for a teacher to behave this way with a child."  The Harris County Sheriff's Office is now investigating and the 13-year-old's mom says her son got a black eye and other injuries.
