"I could not understand why this was happening. I had never witnessed Akian hit anyone, nor could I dream of him lashing out as had been described to me."
After meeting with teachers Stuart sought the help of a behavior therapist, it was decided that the therapist would conduct several classroom visits in order to observe Akian and even try to create a scenario which would push him to lash out in the way described by teachers... despite the instigation, Aikian did nothing.
Finally, in February Aikan's father decided to place a wire on his son in order to find out what was really happening in that classroom. The audio from that day is disturbing at best... Aikan was under constant verbal attack by his teachers. Teachers are on tape screaming at Aikan, threatening him, and having inappropriate conversations while in presence of the students which include adult marital issues, alcohol abuse, and personal opinions of certain students.
Aikan was not lashing out at people, he was defending himself... Thus far the teachers are still employed by the school department in New Jersey.
