You hope that things like this never happen to your child or to anybody else's. It makes you wonder who's out there watching what is going on?
The Department of Education maintains it aggressively goes after abusive teachers. However, inadequate tracking of teachers, incomplete criminal background checks and poor communication among schools, courts and law enforcement agencies have allowed potentially abusive teachers to slip through the cracks, according to reports I have read.
You were right in calling the school and removing your child.
Calling the police and filing charges against this teacher is the best way to get the ball rolling. Also contact your School District Superintendent, the State Board of Education and Child Protection Services.
You may want to consult with an attorney of your own to see what else might be done?
