Charter school teacher accused of abusing students

By 67AM KPUA News

The administration at a Puna public charter school is under fire from parents who claim it hasn`t taken enough action against a teacher accused of abusing her students.

The fourth-grade teacher at Hawai`i Academy of Arts and Science has been accused of screaming at, intimidating and physically abusing her students and making them sit on the floor. Parents say the abuse began during the first week of school, but the teacher wasnt removed from the classroom until the end of January. At least one of the parents have filed a police report against the teacher and others, say they plan to file a temporary restraining order against the teacher, whom they said showed up to at least one school event after she was removed.

The academy's governing board has declined comment citing a confidentiality agreement.
