You Tube Video goes viral on Facebook

See also

Unfortunately, I cannot embed the you tube video where a special ed teacher was videotaped treating a student horribly. It occurred in Fairlawn, New Jersey, if you were to go on You Tube. There are several reasons that I can't embed the video. First of all it caught the school off guard and went viral. The principal was also video taped suspending the teacher; however, you cannot share the video on a news site, such as Examiner. The reason is because you can not video tape anyone without their consent, especially in a school.

When I did my videotaping for the Assessment of Teaching Skills performance for State Certification in NY, I was required to get the consent of the students. Anyone, who did not consent or their parents did not give consent, then the student could not be included in the videotape. It was in violation of child abuse laws.

The video shows the teacher using obscene language concerning a special education teacher, but the tape was editted. Now here comes the tricky part. Anyone, who uses an editing tool on Apple computer has the complete view of the classroom, and then edits it; however another student whereby the person was illegally videotaping appears in the screen. The parent of that student can bring a lawsuit against the person doing the taping. Furthermore, the You Tube can be shared with social media, but not with websites, such as Examiner. The reason because the code under the you tube video is not present. This is known as embedding. That embedded code shows the origin of the person taping. Therefore, the person, who used an IPHONE either knew what they were doing or was warned legally.

The administrator suspending the teacher was taken off YouTube. There is a major problem concerning the principal. A principal should be moving around a school to ensure that no such abuse is happening, and to ensure teaching is happening. A principal is not hired to stay in his/her office all day. Secondly, I am sure the actions of the teacher were brought to the attention of the administration, but nothing happened to stop the abuse of the student. Basically the administrator is at fault.
