Michigan – Parents recently rallied behind an elementary school teacher who recorded an autistic student with his head stuck in a chair as other students stood by. As reported by WNEM, the teacher, Nicole Mcvey, has since been placed on paid administrative leave in connection with the controversial incident that took place at Oaktree Elementary in Goodrich last year.
Mcvey recorded the incident on her cell phone. Parents stood by her at a school board meeting on Monday, reportedly without having seen the video. The school board voted late last year in favor of firing her.
Goodrich Superintendent Scott Bogner is quoted as saying in a statement sent to TV5, “Under Michigan’s tenure law, that teacher has a right to a private hearing of any charges against her. The district is obligated to respect that right and will not discuss specifics of this case.”
Private tenure hearings are being held to determine Mcvey’s future with the school.
