Petition Closed

There is a lot of physical and mental abuse, but teachers or aides of special needs children that can’t speak for themselves do not believe, putting cameras in the classroom will help prevent this abuse.
Cameras would not only serve as protection for our children, they would also serve as protection for teachers and aides against false accusations and retaliation from within their own districts. Cameras would serve as a wonderful training tool as well. Something needs to change before more children are hurt. There is no excuse for our children to return home with injuries and a note that does not make sense.
My non-verbal son returned from school with 2 severely purple, black bruised ears and a few months after, he has been diagnosed with a seizure disorder. Since he is non-verbal, he has no voice that counts in the eye of the law. This needs to change! We need to protect our children and give them a voice.
By signing this petition, you are helping send a message to our officials. We are telling them that complacency and pointing fingers in other directions does nothing when there is a problem.
You do not need to live in our community to show your concern. We need everyone's support.

Thank you for taking the time to read.
