Educators fired after mocking autistic student in audio recording.
BATON ROUGE- A Hope Academy school employee was fired and another will be terminated when school lets out for the summer after an audio recording captured them saying inappropriate things about a special needs student.
Davis, who spoke with WBRZ and shared the recording Tuesday, said she was alarmed at what she discovered.
"To think that I had sent my son there every day, and what had happened before, that I didn't know about.".
At least two adults in a classroom identified as a teacher and a teacher's aide are heard saying horrible things to the student and talking about him.
Apparently, a parent sent a student to school with a recording device in his/her backpack.
The recording appears to be a compilation of audio clips, many of which involve private conversations between two adults with no other persons/children present. »
