Dave Savini CHICAGO (CBS) ―
Hundreds of students have allegedly been beaten by teachers, coaches and staff at Chicago Public Schools. 2 Investigator Dave Savini continues his ongoing investigation involving the illegal use corporal punishment.
Treveon Martin, 10, is one of at least 818 Chicago Public School students, since 2003, to allege being battered by a teacher or other staff member.
Treveon Martin, 10, is afraid of a teacher at his school.
"I've seen him hit five of them in the classroom," Martin said.
Martin says he and others have been hit, grabbed and even struck with a belt.
"He's threatened almost all the kids in his classroom," Martin said.
He says it happened at Robert Emmet Academy in November but a Chicago Public School investigator didn't talk to him until last week - 70 days after the case was reported, and not until after we started asking questions.
"He holded my arms and he picked my body up, and then he just slammed me on the desk," Martin said. http://cbs2chicago.com/investigations/P ... 31134.html
