School Admin Accused of Breaking Autistic Teen's Leg

Post by SamCogar on Thu Mar 24, 2011 8:02 am

A shoving match in a Staten Island high school gym class has ended with a lawsuit against the city Department of Education.

Parents of Brian Shane, a mildly autistic student from New Springville, say an assistant dean of South Richmond High School broke their son's leg in two places as he tried to restrain the teenager during a fight with classmates.

"I don't think he should be allowed around any other child ever again," said Mary Shane, speaking of the school administrator, who hasn't been identified.

The 15-year-old sophomore is now recovering in bed. His mother says her son was playing wiffle ball in the school gymnasium Monday when a bully started slapping him.
