Devonshire Elementary School provided survivalist training to a six year old boy who slipped in the snow, hitting his head and breaking his leg.
The following account comes from the parents, Pritam and Priya, Chandani, and the school officials are not talking.
The teacher apparently told the boy, Rahul Chandani, to walk back, to the building, but he had to crawl as a result of the fractured tibia.
The parents were not notified nor was medical attention was offered to the boy, who was seen crawling by his mother when she picked him up after school. She took him to the hospital.
As the survivalist training was not an expected or contracted part of the curriculum, the school is facing a lawsuit filed by the parents. There is no information as to whether the teacher still has a job.
Could a teachers’ union member in Illinois be fired for such an infraction?
