Thomas Evans started this petition to Patchogue medford board of education

Hello all, my name is Thomas Evans. I am here with this petition in hopes of changing the ways our kids are treated and handled in school. 

KIDS SHOULDBE HEARD. IF ANY KID FEELS UNCOMFORTABLE ABOUT A SITUATION, THEY like to start with my eye opener. Just recently my son, Tobey was involved in a altercation in school. A classmate who was recently engaged in fight 2 days prior when my son walked up, gave him a “dap”, aka pound or a modern version of a hand shake. While doing so, he’s done what a lot of us has done with people we feel cool and comfortable with stated “ I heard you got beat up” , the kid reacts with aggressively stating “you want some” and put his hand around my sons neck. My son swings to defend himself, personnel is close and quick to intervene. Now that they are separated and threat is neutralized, a minute or so passes and a security guard comes up behind my son , whom is standing there sharing words with other student and wraps his arm around my 15 year old sons neck, his leg behind Tobey's legs and slams him to the floor. Inappropriate action even for a law enforcement.

after speaking with my son, and classmates whom not only witnessed it but questioned Mr. Evans (security officer) about actions, I confront The school.  Mr. Hoffman promises to review cameras in which of course “don’t catch the altercation”... yeah of course not

The assistant principal, Mr. Hoffman requests name of witnessing students in which I’ve supplied and they have not, nor want to question. They tell me a student witness is not reliable, potentially lying. He proceeds to tell me my son is in a alternative program while suspended for 3 days for self defense, also states the other student involved is in same program but he will keep them in separate classes. Later that day, Tobey comes home to tell me I was lied too,  not only was the kid in the same class but rode same bus as him to and from school! Wow!  I called with a inquiry, Mr. Hoffman, assistant principal, Man who advised me of HIS INTENTIONS OF SEPARATION.  I question his motive, He proceeds to advise me that he sat both students into office, Tobey and other student and asked them if problem is squashed, they both agreed so he sat into same class. As for the bus, The school has no control over. So, not only do you believe the students at your convenience , believe the tension is squashed but don’t question them behind employee misconduct, shameful.  Mr Evans, this man, whom as a man should know not to touch a child, and a security officer whom should know even better is still employed with no repercussions, all because these schools request trust from these students and fail them all the time! 

 

These are are the people our kids put their trust into, the ones they learn from. We need change. Kids voices in school is all we have other than a staff whom seeks to protect each other. They are our knowledge of what transpired behind closed doors, ALOT OF INJUSTICE STARTS IN SCHOOL Please help me change this system in which sees these kids as job, my son is more than a student, he is my son. As your child is yours and I would voice for them as well. My son was luckily not injured but the next kid maybe. 

our kids have a right to protect them selves when threatened. Don’t suspend them for that, don’t teach my child it is wrong to stand up for yourself, as I am asking for your help as I stand up against them

Police no help, my report won’t be seen by detectives or District attorney for charges, report gets sent to school

attorneys want money, no help.

laws on the inside are different for faculty then laws on the outside. Rubbish! What is right is right.

i feel as if faculty slowly immature while surrounded by students. Hey would explain a lot with headlines of teacher/student abuse.

 

STOP SILENCING OUR CHILDREN! THEIR VOICE SHOULD MATTER! 

LETS START BY RIDDING THIS SCHOOL SECURITY GUARD BY LISTENING TO THE STUDENTS. THIS MAN GETS A PASS BECAUSE OUR KIDS ARE NOT BELIEVED. 

HE SHOULD BE SUSPENDED UNTIL FUTHER INVESTIGATED! Not left around kids

Security guard is named Mr. Evans, no relations

help me rid this man. Help me shame this school

Sincerely, Thank you

a concerned Dad
