What to do when the Teacher AND Teacher's Aide BULLY your Autistic Child? A Father's Solution

5:16 am - 04/24/2012

A Cherry Hill father was so concerned about the way his son was treated and acting at school, he decided to put a wire on him to see what happened in the classroom and what he found, is pretty shocking.

Stuart Chay-Fezt says his 10-year-old who has autism has always been a very gentle, loving boy. So when he started getting reports from school that his son was hitting teachers, he knew something was wrong after putting a recorder in his pocket for a day.

What he heard was so outrageous it prompted him to make a 17 minute you tube video.
Chey-Fezt says he hopes this video will lead to legislative action for zero tolerance to his type of behavior from educators.

Meanwhile he says his son Akain is in a new school environment and doing really well.

So the father calls for 1. A public apology from both the teacher (still working in the school system) & the teacher's aide (one who is fired and the other who is also still working in the school system) 2. Legislative changes for a teacher to be fired/reprimanded if he/she was to be found to be bullying a student (actually found in the description video at the linked petition)

For more disturbing information AND TRANSCRIPTS visit where the father has written out most of what is included in the video:

I saw a PSA on bullying the other day on TV that said you need to talk to a teacher/adult in the event you're being bullied. Like... 90% of the bullying I ever faced in school was FROM the teachers and adults who were supposed to protect me, but I thought I had to endure it or that I deserved it because they were authority figures. It makes me sick that these disgusting "teachers" regularly get reprimanded with nothing more than a wink, a nod, and a slap on the wrist.

This guy is amazing for taking a stand.

I got bullied badly from teachers, too, and just...nobody cares. I tried taking things to the principal, and I always got told he had "talks" with the teachers, but nothing ever improved. I'm a sub now, will be a full-time teacher in the fall, and I just...I can't understand it.

I didn't get bullied by teachers as much, thank God, but anyone who thinks that 99% of teachers give a fuck or are going to do anything to stop it... well, I've got a bridge to sell them.

Yeah, when I was in school, I was never bullied by teachers but they did a pretty good job of looking the other way when I was bullied by other kids.

It's interesting, now that I am subbing in several school districts, I am seeing anti-bullying stuff everywhere in the schools. But, since I haven't had to report any bullying related incidents yet I have no way of knowing if it is just lip-service or if they are taking it seriously.

Oh god, teachers definitely don't give a fuck. Getting bullied on a daily basis? "Lol just ignore it! :D" And then when you sit by yourself during recess they're all "Why don't you go play with the other kiiiiiiids?".

No, I'm not bitter!

"they bully you because it upsets you, stop getting upset and they'll stop bullying, now let me do my best to encourage the bullying so I can boost morale in my classroom and feel like a hero." that one is a classic

Oh, you had Mrs. Byrnes too? Apparently when I started crying from bullying, I was just looking for attention.

They sent me to a counselor for my crying. It was my fault, as you know, that I cried so much. I had emotional problems, because being taunted all day long never warrants any kind of emotional release.
Also, they made me read this book about a little boy whose face would turn purple when people "teased" him. The moral of the story was boy stopped turning purple, people stopped "teasing" him. Except it left no explanation for why the teasing started in the first place. true story, bro.

No shit. Bullying I remember most in school (not aimed at me in this case) was from a teacher. The bullying I've experienced at work as an adult was from someone who out-ranked my boss. Who exactly are you supposed to talk to, again?

I was also bullied by teachers' aides and a couple teachers. They were horrible people.

There was a chemistry teacher in my high school who was a bully and could not get fired no matter what. She hit kids with their notebooks, and when one broke one of her thermometers by putting it on a hot plate until it exploded, she took his cell phone and melted it on a hot plate. I also have a picture of her with her hands around my friend's throat.

Oh, and the year after I had her she saw me with my broken foot (which got me out of marching band; the universe was awesome right then) and said "I bet you paid a doctor to get you out of it, didn't you?"
