Tawanda Madden-Jones started this petition to Gwinnett County School District

My child came home recently with multiple rug like burn bruises from a Gwinnett County school.  She is deaf, non verbal and mild Cerebral Palsy.   And, I am petitioning Gwinnett County School District to place cameras in the classroom of all special needs classes to protect our kids.  And, for the safety of individuals who can't speak for themselves when their parent is not around.   So, there will be no question to what happened.  It would be videotaped. 

In 2016, a bill was passed in Georgia that Video cameras will now be allowed in special-education classrooms for safety and training purposes, under a bill passed by Georgia lawmakers Thursday. House Bill 614, also known as the Landon Dunson Act, now enables video-monitoring camera equipment to be installed in special-education classes.  

But, Participation from local schools would be voluntary and access to footage would be limited to school administration, parents who request permission, law enforcement and court officers via subpoena.

I am asking that you let our special needs population know that we hear them and their cries.  And, we will stand behind this petition.  And, demand that Gwinnett County put Cameras in the Special Needs classrooms as the law passed in Georgia.  Because, today there are so many persons in Mentoring and Trusted roles that have harmed someone we loved before.  And, let's stop and prevent this from happening to our non verbal kids.
