(Scroll down for video) A school district was hit with a lawsuit after teachers forced students to beat fellow classmates, according to court documents filed in Texas.

Two mothers of Houston, said that their children are still suffering after being beaten by their fellow classmates.

Their lawsuit alleges that the boys, who are in second grade, were beaten by teachers and classmates for misbehaving. The mothers were identified as Yolanda Anderson and Ms. Corbin.

The beatings unfolded at the A.G. Hilliard Elementary School in North Forest. The students were forced to attack other children and were threatened with harm if they did not beat their classmates.

In one incident, a female student was approached from behind, punched, kicked and had her hair pulled. The students were then told that they did a good job.

Corbin and Anderson said that their children now need emotional therapy. The lawsuit seeks compensation for the children’s continuous treatment.
