Macon School District Sued Over Attacks

A boy is suing the Macon School District, six adults, and three students, in federal court, saying he was attacked twice by other students, and administrators did nothing to intervene either time. The boy’s attorney says the district violated his civil rights, denied his right to fair and equal access to education, and his right to be safe and secure. Along with the three students, defendants include the school board president, the former superintendent, high school principal, and technical education center director; a substitute teacher and a full-time teacher. The three administrators were placed on leave and later resigned. The boy says he was hit in the face last October, and was attacked again this February. The second incident was apparently recorded on video and shared around the school.
