Approximately 100 people attended a meeting to discuss recent actions against a teacher and aide.
(AP) The head of a central Ohio school district concedes that administrators ``fell short'' in responding to complaints that a developmentally disabled student was being bullied by school staff.
The couple raising the 14-year-old girl hid a recording device on her to show she was being verbally abused by a teacher and school aide. Miami Trace Schools Superintendent Dan Roberts told nearly 100 people at a school board meeting Tuesday that the district acted once it had ``verifiable proof.'' He told WCHO News that this is something that will be hard to overcome, but the district must "move-on".
The secret recordings and investigations that followed have resulted in the aide's resignation, disciplinary action for the teacher and a lawsuit.
Roberts says he knows many people are outraged. He said he feels angry and betrayed, as both a father and educator.
