From The Daily Caller via Yahoo! News:
A seventh-grade boy was allegedly raped by another male student during gym class at Barack Obama Global Preparation Academy in Los Angeles two weeks ago.
The 13-year-old boy, identified only as Julian, is a special-needs student at the middle school, reports KTLA. He has the mental capacity of a six-to-eight year old.
The boy’s parents, who are also only identified by their first names, announced plans to to sue the Los Angeles Unified School District on Monday.
At a press conference, Brian Claypool, an attorney retained by the family, said that Julian’s physical education teacher left Julian unsupervised during class. The alleged assailant, an unidentified eighth-grade boy, then lured Julian behind a set of bleachers and sexually assaulted him.
Julian’s mother said she filed a complaint some two months ago because she feared that other students were bullying Julian during gym class. She says school officials did nothing in response.
Whoa, whoa, whoa! What is happening at Barack Obama Prep? Bad, bad stuff.
Shouldn’t you wait until someone is dead, or has actually done something before you name a school after them? And how is this school called a “prep school?” How does it compare to say, Deerfield or Choate?
