Man Sent Autistic Son To School Wearing A Wire, Hears Teachers Making Horrific Comments

One dad was shocked when he was told his autistic son was throwing things and hitting people at school. The dad says he never witnessed his son exhibiting any aggressive or violent behavior.

He even took a behaviorist, who couldn't even get the child to lash out when pushed. The dad had an idea that supplied him with the answers—and chilled him to the bone.

Stuart Chaifetz was curious as to why his 10-year-old son, Akian, might have been acting out in class. Students in the class have moderate to severe autism and many are unable to speak, which is why he couldn't get any answers from Akian himself.

After months of meetings with the school and behaviorists, he finally decided to get to the bottom of it.

"On the morning of Friday, February 17, I put a wire on my son, and I sent him to school,” Chaifetz explained in a YouTube video. “And that night, my life changed forever. What I heard on that audio was so disgusting, vile and just an absolute disrespect-- and bullying-- of my son, that happened not by other children, but by his teacher, the aides, the people who were supposed to protect him. They were literally making my son's life a living hell."

The audio captured teachers and aides talking about highly inappropriate topics right in front of the children. They discussed their drinking binges and hangovers, personal marital problems and even bad-mouthed their student’s parents.

They did this all openly right in front of the students, knowing the kids could not report them.

“They didn’t care. They treated them as if they were sub-humans,” said Chaifetz. The reason for Aiken's outbursts was revealed. The teacher and aides were bullying him. They made fun of him for talking quietly to himself. They threatened him. They told him 'shut your mouth,' and even called him a 'bastard' to his face. When the child politely asked if he would get to see his dad later, they told him, ‘no.’

Teacher Kelly Altenburg continues to work at the school, but in a different classroom. Tenure laws protected her job. She tried to sue Chaifetz for violating New Jersey wire laws, but she’s never come forward to apologize for her behavior in the classroom.
