When a mother’s once happy and loving son turned angry and mean, she went with her gut and put a microphone in his backpack. When the boy’s supervisor heard the tape, his teachers were fired right away.
When parents send their kids to school, they expect their teachers to care for them as if they were their own. Milissa Davis is a caring mother, which is why it was so scary for her to find out that she had been giving her child with special needs to his attackers every time she dropped him off at school.
Milissa knew that something must have happened to her 12-year-old son Camden when he started acting in strange ways. Camden has serious autism. The boy, who was usually kind and caring, had become angry and was peeing the bed. The smart mother guessed that his quick change in behavior was caused by school. WBRZ said that Milissa came up with the idea to hide a recording device in the child’s backpack because Camden couldn’t say what was wrong.
Milissa listened to what had been taped that day in Camden’s class at Hope Academy in Baton Rouge after he got home from school. What she heard made her fears come true.
Milissa Davis’ mentally disabled son was picked on, made fun of, and abused by the boy’s two special needs teachers in front of the whole class.
“All you do is write the word. “What’s hard about it?” one teacher asked in an irritated tone. The boy tried to talk back to the teacher, but what he said was hard to understand. The teacher imitated the child’s answer to make fun of how he couldn’t speak properly. She then pushed him even more, asking, “Camden, why don’t you have anything written down?” You can’t sit with everyone because of this. “Tell that to your mom.” A teacher was also heard saying, “Let’s see what they do with him in public school. He would go to Live Oak Middle School. No way, he’s not going to make it.”
Milissa was angry and upset by what she heard, which makes sense. She took her son out of school and got a lawyer right away because she knew she would have to fight.
Milissa Davis said, “I just wanted to cry, scream, and do everything I could because it was so bad.” “To think that I sent my son there every day and that I didn’t know what had happened there before.”
