What can I do if my child was physically harassed and I have evidence?
Question Details: My child was harassed by one of her teachers. The teacher tugged on her hands with extreme force. I have evidence more specifically an audio recording where the teacher is verbally disrespecting her repeatedly and you can hear the struggle my child is having when the teacher hurt my kid. I took it to the principle an they're aren't doing anything about. It's not the first complaint they get about the teacher. There was a lot of people when it happened. The teacher is persuading the students to not say what they saw but to say otherwise.
1) You can go over the principals' head, to the superintendent or the Board of Education; one or both may take action.
2) If you believe that teacher's actions did rise to, or may have risen to, the level of actually constituting assault, you could contact the police to file a complaint.
