USA: Physical abuse claims at school for Deaf

Posted 23/7-10 at 07.26

The director of a residential school for Deaf children in North Carolina has been suspended after allegations that she failed to act on reports that staff members slapped a student, shoved another and held one girl face-down on the floor with a force that left bruises.

The girls at the school also claimed that a dorm director made a habit of dropping in when they were scheduled for showers and watched them on a security camera while they were in their pajamas.

The action against the director came after events at the school were reported by Raleigh-based Disability Rights N.C., an independent advocacy group.
