School sued over care of special needs children

LEBANON, KY (AP) -

The parents of three special needs children say their children suffered abuse or neglect by a special education teacher at Marion County High School last year, and one of the plaintiffs is the school's immediate past principal.

 The Lexington Herald-Leader reports (http://bit.ly/1lJseMy) a lawsuit filed in Marion Circuit Court states that special education teacher Holly Buckman placed students in seclusion without supervision, endangering the life of one girl who is unable to care for herself.

 The lawsuit also says that Schools Superintendent Taylora Schlosser fired classroom aides who reported problems to parents.

 In a statement, Schlosser said the school district doesn't comment on pending litigation. However, she said district officials are always concerned about allegation involving their students.
