Ok I'm new to this so please bare with me. I don't want this to be long and drawn out. But I'm desperately looking for help with a very serious situation that has happened with my 7 yr old son and an employee of Chicago public schools. Long story short my son came home from school last week telling my husband and I that a teacher aid had lifted my 1st grader up off the floor by grabbing around his neck. Then she proceeded to hit his head into the wall multiple times. There was another child witness to the incident. So my son had goose egg on his forehead. My son continues to tell us that through the rest of the day he tried to tell a couple of people and was told to shut up or be quite each time. So obviously we take him to the E.R. he has a contusioun and husband then takes him to the police station. The cops tell my husband that we have to wait for the school to get a meeting with evryone involved. (School didn't contact us until the following week only after DCFS contacted them) I've also been in contact with the school board, the local network of the school. DCFS does their investigation and interveiws my son and our other children. They went to the school and interveiwed the other children that wittnessed the incident. Then the DCFS investigater tells my husband that she was told by school staff that my son had taken a bright yellow orange and green plastic gun to school and that she didn't believe in kids playing with guns. (My son has a fasination with cops and fbi) she then concluded that the other children was unreliable. She says that she thinks its a good school and that we should leave our children there. (They already in a new school) this person admitted to my husband that she had picked up my son and shook him. Why hasn't been punished? If my son had gone to school and told them that my husband or I had assaulted him that way and u already know we would be locked up and kids taken so fast. My son is now having nightmares and scared to go to school. I'm so angry and hurt for my son. He didn't deserve to be treated that way. I'm trying to get this story to the news but all the websites I found haven't been any help. PLEASE HELP! THIS MONSTER IS GOING TO CONTINUE TO ABUSE CHILDREN AND THE SCHOOL IS GOING TO CONTINUE TO SWEEP IT UNDER THE RUG! HELP... THIS IS A SCHOOL THAT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE CLOSED WITH THE REST AT THE BEGINNING OF THE SCHOOL YEAR. BUT THEY FIRED EVERYONE AND BROUGHT IN ALL NEW EMPLOYEES....  (Feb 17, 2014 | post #13)
