The school principal was dismissed pending an investigation after the vision of how he was dragging a student by the hand.
The education minister called the footage "terrifying and exciting."
At this stage it is not clear when the vision was taken, but it is believed that this was recent.
James Merlino said that the investigation will begin immediately, and the principal in question, at Manor Lakes College, will be removed from office until it takes place.
A young boy can be seen being dragged around the school yard.
