Video of Violent Altercation with Student Raises Critical Concerns

In response to the disturbing video showing a violent altercation between a student and a Milwaukee Public School teacher’s aide, Congresswoman Gwen Moore (WI-04) released the following statement

By - Apr 21st, 2016 12:57 pm

“As a parent and grandparent, I was deeply disturbed by a video that recently emerged of a student allegedly being assaulted by a teacher’s aide at Bay View High School. Luckily, the student only sustained minor injuries, but that doesn’t change the severity or magnitude of this incident. When Milwaukee parents send their sons and daughters to school, they reasonably expect that school to serve as a safe space for their children to learn and grow.

“Many of our city’s youth find themselves facing a host of obstacles when it comes to their education. Some go to schools that are in dire need of repair. Others are dependent on their schools as the only source of nutritious and balanced meals, but violence at the hands of an adult staff member should never be one of those obstacles. I consider such conduct as blatantly inexcusable.

“We still do not have all the facts about this incident, but as details continue to surface, I ask my constituents to remain calm and measured as the proper authorities conduct their investigation.”

    From what I have seen and heard on the local news, that assistant teacher should be flat out fired. He should also face charges of abuse of a child. Whatever the child did, if anything, it did not warrant what that man did to the child. As an adult, you cannot let yourself get out of control to that extent, and if you think you are, then you are bound to remove yourself from the situation before it does get out of hand. If you cannot do that consistently, then you need to work in a different profession.
