High School Principal Loses Job After Practicing Hypnosis on Students

Watch with ChainOnce again, another high school principal is coming under scrutiny and facing charges for something he did to his students. This time the man in question, George Kenney, isn’t facing charges for sexual relations with students, which is one of the more common reasons that principals and teachers face charges.

This practice must be performed by experts such as gosforth physiotherapists¬†and other licensed therapists.

Kenney used to hypnotize his students in order to help them do better in academics and athletics. His superiors told him to quit the practice, but Kenney did not stop and an internal investigation discovered that he had hypnotized up to 75 people on school grounds; some of the students received up to 40 sessions from the principal.
