Two teachers in Ohio dragged a 7-year-old autistic boy with autism through a school.
After a prosecutor dropped felony charges against the teachers, the boy’s mother, Bonnie McKean, posted a video of the dragging on Facebook.
“No charges were filed against these women,” McKean told Inside Edition . “It’s just not good enough. … This was child abuse. He could have fallen or been hurt while being dragged down the hall.”
On May 8, McKean said she was notified that her son Corbin was “hitting, kicking and biting his teachers.” She arrived to the school to find Corbin hiding under a chair in the school office. McKean said she was not told of the dragging incident for nearly a week.
The two teachers, Hannah Ruth and Heather Gregory, will not be charged criminally. However, they may face punishment from the school district and the state, the Telegraph-Forum reported.
"To see my little boy carried and drug from one end of the school to the front of the office by someone that is supposed to help him learn and protect him while he is at school – this was inexcusable," McKean said. "These women are trained to handle situations like this – we have given them the tools to avoid situations like this."
