3/16: Iona College 85, Valparaiso 77 (Valparaiso, IN - CIT First Round)
Kim Scott, a Teaching Assistant who works in the computer lab at Isaac E. Young Middle School in New Rochelle, frustrated over the behavior of a group of special education students in the lab, allegedly cursed out one of the students and attacked their teacher.
"You're going to get your fuckin' ass kicked", Scott is said to have threatened to one student, according to sources familiar with the incident.
Scott put her hands around the neck of Deanna Basile, a Special Education teacher, choking her, these same sources confirmed. Scott later claimed she was just "playing".
Scott is black; Basile is white. Some have suggested the handling of the incident is a form of racial bias. They claim that school's Assistant Principal Tawanda Gerald Robinson, who is black, has sought to cover up the incident to protect Scott. Multiple sources have confirmed that a letter was placed in Scott's file but no further action was taken.
UPDATE: A person claiming to speak on behalf of Kim Scott tells Talk of the Sound she disputed the allegations made against her, that she did not choke anyone, and that she filed a counter-letter to the letter placed in her file by the school.Read more
