NJ teacher accused of child abuse

Posted on Friday, July 1st, 2016    

A preschool teacher in Wayne, New Jersey was recently suspended for punishing students by locking them in a bathroom, an article of CBS New York reported on June 28.

Reports claim that at least two Packanack Elementary School preschool students were locked inside the bathroom by their teacher as a disciplinary measure. The children were only 3 or 4 years old. The preschool teacher, whose name was withheld, stopped attending the classroom on June 8. Parents and students were told the teacher was sick, but parents later learned the teacher was suspended while being investigated by state authorities. Parents were appalled that it took so long before the incident was discovered. Packanack principal Roger Rogalin did not issue a statement regarding the matter.
