Besides the vulgar discussion about drunken sexual escapades, the father was absolutely shocked to hear what was occuring in front of students at Horace Mann School in Cherry Hill, NJ.
He got over 6 hours of tape, including severe bullying from the teachers and aides.
While he knew NJ law would never allow the tape in court, he took the recording to the school. An aide was fired….
You will be aghast! The audio recordings revealed teachers mocking and swearing at a 10-year-old autistic boy.
Dad busts teacher yelling at child with autism:
Akian was berated, yelled at to “shut up,” even called a “bastard” by the teacher’s aide. The recording also captured several inappropriate conversations between them about getting drunk and having sexual encounters right in front of the children.
The most heart-wrenching evidence of the entire recording revealed that Akian who would regularly ask to see his father as a form of reassurance. He was told “no” over and over, sending him into a meltdown which lasted over 30 minutes.
Chaifetz knew the audio recording could not be used legally in court in the state of New Jersey, but he decided to send it to the head of the school anyway. This led to the teacher’s aide being fired, although the atrocious and disgusting abuse she directed at Akian was never called into question. Worse, none of the other adults who were present that day, including the teacher, were dismissed.
In the age of recording, I am befuddled that teachers do not always feel they might be on camera. These actions are beyond the pale. They had to know they were crossing a dangerous line.
I don’t get it. Why would anyone with a low level of patience and zero compassion want to take on teaching challenged students in the first place?
