EXCLUSIVE TALK OF THE SOUND REPORT -- A very credible parent source from Webster Elementary School has shared with NRCP that a district assigned substitute Physical Education Teacher assaulted (parent used expression "teacher put child in a chokehold") 5th grader at the aforementioned school. The alleged assault occurred yesterday, June 12th, 2009. We are gathering more details at this time. We were also told that there was a letter sent out to parents. Citizens, please write in and let us know what you know!
EDITOR'S NOTE: This story which has now been widely reported in newspapers, online and on TV was broken her first thanks to alert New Rochelle residents who have taken to reporting the news themselves via Talk of the Sound. Another signal of how citizen media is changing the rules of the game. Great work all around.
UPDATE: On Friday, June 12 a teacher was charged criminally (assault 3rd degree, endangering the welfare of a minor, and harassment).
