Hundreds Of Kids Beaten, Whipped, Even Choked By Teachers, Coaches


cbs2chicago.com

An exclusive CBS 2 investigation discovered Treveon Martin is one of at least 818 Chicago Public School students, since 2003, to allege being battered by a teacher or an aide, coach, security guard, or even a principal. In most of those cases - 568 of them - Chicago Public School investigators determined the children were telling the truth.

I do not understand, how this could be happening, in these days and times! I thought there were safe guards placed in all schools, where teachers can not abuse children.

How do they get away with this? How can the schools systems keep those teachers on?


The 2 Investigators found reports of students beaten with broomsticks, whipped with belts, yard sticks, struck with staplers, choked, stomped on and pushed down stairs. One substitute teacher even fractured a student's neck.

But even more alarming, in the vast majority of cases, teachers found guilty were only given a slap on the wrist.


Those poor children! The school board has been allowing this?


"Any founded allegation where an adult is hitting a child, hitting a student - they're going to be gone," Duncan said.

But that's not what happened under Duncan's watch. Of the 568 verified cases, only 24 led to termination. Records show one teacher who quote "battered students for several years" was simply given a "warning" by the Board of Education.

And another student was given "100 licks with a belt." The abuse was substantiated, but the records show the teacher was not terminated.


I don't understand this... if my child came home from school with signs of being hit, beaten, or abused at school, I would be ALL OVER that teacher and school board!

Yet the school board looks away?

I remember when I was a kid in 2nd grade, a teacher - loved to spank me everyday in front of the class! It was humiliating to me. I have always been thankful, teachers were not allowed to do that anymore.

But I guess I was wrong.... besides Chicago, does it go on anywhere else also?


There is a state law that bans corporal punishment. But as our 2 Investigators first exposed in September - students are being hit by coaches too. Paddles were confiscated, and CBS 2 exposed gym security tape at Simeon Career Academy showing a coach paddling volleyball players reportedly for missing serves.

Martin says the teacher injured him after he got into a scuffle with a classmate over an eraser.

"My back really hurted, and then at the end of the day, I had to go the hospital," Martin said.

His mother, Courtney Smith, says he was taken by ambulance and treated for a contusion on his back. It is children around his age who appear to be most at risk. The 2 Investigators found the students with the most complaints are in kindergarten through 8th grade.


This is sickening!! How long have they allowed this to happen and why?

chicago area schools? Well, it depends on the area honestly. If it's the little gang banger kids that are flashing colors and threatening teachers, then yeah i can see why the teachers snap. If it's not, then I have no idea why this is happeneing. I am inclined to believe it is the gang banger kids cause otherwise yes, parents would be all over the school. Nine times outta ten the gang kids have dopers for parents who don't pay any attention. doesn't make it right mind you, but if some bratty little thugs were constantly threatening me (which does happena lot) i would eventually have enough and beat them down too. If it's more than one teacher chances are there is a reason like this for it.

WOW, you have gotten 2 stars, for basically saying... it is ok to beat the kids?

You are kidding me?!

Unbelievable!

It does not matter where the kids come from..... are you telling me... the majority of the kids in Kindergarten to 8th grade are the "gang kids"?

No teacher has a right to beat a child......... if a kid is bad, send them to alternative schools, but DON'T BEAT THEM!

I think I am going to be sick, if people here on ATS, think it is ok, to hit children!

I would did not expect that..... I really thought people were more compassionate about stopping the various abuses that go on in the world.

So, I am shocked, your post, has gotten stars....which means agreement to abuse children!!

I doubt seriously there was any "beating" going on, give me a freakin break.

I challenge any of you whiners to spend one day in a a middle or high school. And I don't mean one in a lower income area, I don't want any of you risking your lives (seriously).

Ok, don't spend a whole day there, just go to ONE class. By the time the teacher gets the little heathens settled down, the bell rings!

I work in education, my sister works in education in a low income area. The teachers have armed guards escort them to and from cars, this has been the case for at least five years.

Where there is smoke there is fire. Years ago when corporal punishment was allowed, you didn't have all these punks robbing the other kids of their right to an education. I am just so very thankful I grew up in a different era and my kids are grown.

When I was in second grade I was choked and shook by my teacher. I'll admit I was sort of a pain in the ass, but it doesn't justify what happened to me.

It wasn't an incredibly long time ago either - I'm only 21. Mrs. Compton, may you rot in hell.

It doesn't shock me that it's still happening rather frequently.

All I can say is if this is true and the teachers were let off with light punishment, watch out. The guy who was in charge of the Chicago school system is now our Secatery of Education.

Well hey, that is some promising news. I know my sister and her fellow-teachers are behind Obama's education/youth plans all the way, she said they have hope the educational system might actually be improved. Now there's a longshot for you.

Well then, why are the parents not standing up to them? I do not believe in "beating" children but I do believe if parents give permission for their child to be spanked when badly misbehaving, that is ok. When I was growing up I never saw anyone "beat" but did see a few spankings. I think many kids now a days are not disiplined by their parents and are out of control. This problem we have is causing problems in the schools. But beating, choking, and other things are outlandish!

Speaking as someone who came through a school system where caning, slippering, choking, and general physical violence was commonplace for student punishment, I'm all for it.

None of my school friends is in jail, 2 are engineers, one is a doctor, and I work in computer science.

None of us complain about our harsh school regimen, in fact we look back on those days fondly, beatings and all.

I wonder how these punks will fare in the real world after growing up with zero discipline and zero respect for authority.

PS - this viewpoint is unlikely to find much favor hereabouts with all our resident free radicals.

yea, laying down an occasional good beatin or two on a punk kid is good for them. I don't see anything wrong with it.

Maybe string a random student up like a pinata and have the teachers take swings at him while the other students cheer them on.

Hey, life is tough.

This isn't a long term prevalent situation except in the rarest of cases. This, along with a string of horrendous police actions that have ended in many unarmed, and even injured, teenagers (CHILDRENS!) deaths along with elderly, pregnant women all speaks volumes to the fact the leaders consider NWO already here, and the new SS way of doing things is being shoved down everyones throats. This is a part of the larger picture, and its a change from how things were.

I totally agree, when growing up I never seen anyone ever beat up per say, but the strap and I were personal friends, some times I would have my hair pulled and screamed at so loud that you would actually piss yourself, all before you got the strap, which I mite add was only aloud if your parents gave permission, then when I would arrive at home, I would get the belt.

I realise it sounds extreme and I don't hit my own childern, but I tell you we had alot more respect for our teachers,parents and our elders.

How on earth does this have anything to do with the NWO or the SS? Last time i checked this thread was about children being "beaten" which in itself is a rediculious allegation. Go to a school and sit in a classroom. you will see. SS
give me a break!

I got cracked in the face by our maths teacher in year 9 for getting out of my chair to borrow a pen. # that hurt.

Then he tries to tell me that I am un contralable, and sends my to the Headmasters office.

Should sue the #er.

And people wonder why I hate religion.

And the problem is?

One of the things that is VERY wrong in our society today is that parents REFUSE to raise their own children. They send them to school to be raised but when it comes time for a beating.....Oh...WELL....NOT MY CHILD!


I wen't through far worse plus went through haizing when I was in school. It was a right of passage that made me a better person. By being haized, I realized that I am NOT the only person in the world and if I # up, expect a beat down.

Project Paperclip brought the nazis into the US to fill up the ranks of Nasa and the cia and numerous organizations. The Nazis won that war subversively!!!
This nwo is the nazis, only the real nazis, the cabal being their leaders (such as the Rothschild's). Joseph Mengele style programs were implimented on a large scale, and are under the surface of nearly every town and city. Mkultra type programs are prevalent.

I stand by this entirely. Im an expereincer and my memories involve greys and nazis in the late 60s, and obviously a joint US cabal/et program. Your country is a nazi one. The new era of police brutalizing citizens and schools turning into abusive cesspools is the SS.

beating kids is a good thing. most kids today are little brats. getting everything they want. and the parents are more of friends rather then disciplinarians.

beating a kid for no reason is wrong. but if the kid did wrong hit him. how can you explain logically to a small child that he did was wrong? hit him once and he wont do it again.
