A Cincinnati teacher has resigned in the wake of racist comments and abusive actions taken toward handicapped children.
Intervention Specialist Pamela Bullock has left her position at Wayne Local Schools in Warren County, after four teaching assistants wrote a letter to administrators detailing her abuse toward students.
In one incident, the assistants reported that Ms. Bullock was taking care of a handicapped, non-verbal student, when she became irate at him. Bullock threw a marker at the boy, hitting him in the head.
Later the same day, "a racial comment was directed toward the same student," wrote the assistants. "After applying a bandage to the student's leg, [Bullock] said, 'Anything else, your highness? My people fought for years, so we wouldn't have to serve white people like you.'"
The assistant's letter continued, "In addition, there is a great lack of teaching in the functional skills classroom for intensive needs special education students. On most days, she sits at her computer, while paraprofessionals create activities and try to teach the students. It is not the intention of this letter to be vindictive or to attack (Bullock). However, as paraprofessionals, we are required to be advocates for our students."
Two administrators, elementary school principal Jean Hartman and special education coordinator Amanda Johnson, did nothing about the incidents, despite it being brought to their attention. When the district started termination procedures, Bullock resigned and Johnson and Hartman were put on administrative leave.
