No one can stand the thought of a child getting bullied. But it is perhaps even worse when the child is challenged in some way. However, finding that his autistic son was being bullied at school was exactly what Stuart Chaifetz found after he used a wire to tape his son at school, reports Yahoo!.
Stuart Chaifetz became suspicious after he watched his son Akian acting contrary to his usual behavior. After many months of wondering and fretting he finally put a wire on his son to listen in on what was going on. Chaifetz came to learn that his son had been going through the most hurtful and painful kind of bullying imaginable.
To make matters worse, it was at the hands of teachers and aides.
Once Stuart Chaifetz, who must be a hero to many, had the recordings, he turned them in. And the school board fired and reprimanded the teachers involved.
This blog has devoted considerable attention to bullying at Houston schools. Recently, one of the posts, which is part of the Legal U series, provided explicit methods that parents can turn to in terms of addressing bullying. Obviously those methods did not include using a wire, but now that the idea has been put out there, perhaps more parents will use it.
It is not always possible or necessary to use an attorney to help stop bullying at Houston schools. However, each case of bullying is different and in some cases it makes absolutely perfect sense to go to an attorney. If you think you might wish to make a bullying case you should speak to a local attorney.Related Resources:
