Violence in school is taboo. Children rarely talk about their teacher’s behavior at school, because they also have secrets to hide. Grades, misbehavior not doing their homework. But there are some kind of students that take control of their situation and try to change it. And it’s not about telling the truth to their parents or the Principal about the yelling, and the rough approach, but punishing the teacher directly. Is it because of the level of power that students of all generations were given by society? Is it a lack of communication and hiding truth? Or is it maybe just the cruel reality of the world we are living in?
The story is about some fourth graders who found out that their teacher is allergic to antibacterial sanitizes Tired of all the “problems” that he was causing them, they tried to kill him by intentionally pouring the substance on all items that their teacher could touch. And no, it’s not about a gang on boys from a school left in a forgotten corner of the world, but about a school of girls in Elba, New York.
Sheriff Chief Investigator Jerome E. Brewster was the one who gave the information to “News”.
“I don’t know her reaction to hand sanitizer. If it’s something like peanut butter – in some people it can kill you. Obviously these students had been made aware that this teacher was highly allergic to anti-bacterial hand sanitizer and they started talking amongst themselves because they didn’t like the teacher.”
The truth came out through one of the colleagues who told the whole story to their parents. They rushed to the Principal who suspended all those involved, but there was no other penalty whatsoever. The good news is that they weren’t able to put their plan into action before they got caught and the teacher’s health and life ended up safe after all.
An important fact is that some details of the story remained secret, because of The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act. The only data released to the press was that no one was injured and no crime has been committed. The school declared that the problem will be handled internally, as the students confessed their intentions right away to them, their parents and the Sheriff, and no plan was put into act.
The Genesee County Sheriff stated that the case was officially closed this week.
