MADISON – Today, Senator Taylor released the following statement after learning of an incident at Bay View High School in which a teacher’s aide was caught on video pushing a student onto a desk and holding him down on the floor:

“Based on the video I saw, I am deeply concerned about what happened at Bay View High School. I believe violence is a major educational barrier for our kids. It’s just that usually it happens on the street, not right in the classroom. We need to create schools and communities free of violence so that our kids can focus on learning, not looking over their shoulders. Until that day comes, we must ensure that our kids have access to school therapists who they can talk to about any trauma they experienced. Additionally, we must ensure workers have special training to address conflict.

“With regard to this incident, it is my expectation that the school will take appropriate disciplinary action towards all involved. Transparency will be key in moving ahead through that process.
