Teacher attacked by student

by Deborah Loeppky
(United States)

I was violently attacked by an autistic 14 year old boy while substitute teaching. I was scoffed at and the principal of the school lied to the sheriff, who had to be called to handcuff the boy and remove him from the school grounds. The employer told me I was insubordinate and unprofessional because I tried to protect a para educator from being choked around her throat and because I said that this boy does not belong in this setting because of his ongoing behavior and hurting people for no reason.

Our laws protect people like this for anything they do. It's just getting crazy. I could have been killed, disfigured or seriously hurt. I had nothing against this boy. My issue was with the employer who did not provide the proper support for the boy.

I am a former special ed teacher, just trying to help out.
