Crestline elementary employees placed on leave after dragging student

CRESTLINE Two kindergarten teachers seen on video carrying an autistic boy down hallways and dragging him on the floor by an ankle won't be criminally charged but still face disciplinary proceedings.

His mother, Bonnie McKean, released footage of the incident on Thursday, after the county prosecutor decided against pursuing felony charges on Wednesday. As of Sunday morning, the video had almost 148,000 views and 1,500 shares. A misdemeanor assault charge was filed against that employee.

She added: "This was child abuse".

She noted that she had given the school tools to help deal with her son's needs, such as tips for calming him.

The following week, on May 8, McKean said she got another call notifying her that Corbin was "hitting, kicking and biting his teachers".

The video shows Corbin being dragged inside the school and through its corridors. Police then showed her the security footage.

Crestline Schools Superintendent Noreen Mullins told WJW that the kindergarten teacher and the aide, seen in the video dragging the boy, have both been on paid administrative leave since the incident.

"Resigning is a possibility", Mullens said.

McKean said while she understands that her son's autism is not an excuse for his behavior, she believes the teachers should have handled the situation differently.

"As parents, we are supposed to trust the school and its employees are doing their job and that our kids are being taken care of while they are there", McKean said. "I may never trust that again".
