A mentally challenged 15-year-old girl was gang-raped beneath her desk during class only feet away from her teachers at an Elmont, N.Y., school, according to a lawsuit filed Friday. When the girl reported the horrific incident the next day, school officials failed to report it, the victims mother claimed in the suit.
The special-needs teen, known by the initials K.J., was allegedly sexually assaulted for 10 minutes under her desk by two teenage boys, as another hit her on the head whenever she tried to escape, during science class at Martin De Porres Academy, claims the lawsuit

Forget Nanny Bloomberg; where the heck was the teacher, or the other students? A gang rape isn't something that can be done quietly and discretely.
Both these boys should be castrated. Then killed.
Look for the union label, tra la la.
Sadly, this school is run under the De LaSalle Brothers — a parochial school that appears to receive some public funding for kids with severe disabilities. As someone said, there’s probably a lot more to the story. For details, go to http://www.mdp.org/
In the last “sex under the desk” story I can recall, both participants had IQs several times sixty, and one had four stars to boot.
I don’t know. Something stinks about this story. There’s more here than meets the eye.
So while this is going on the teacher continues the lesson?
I agree it may be normal in some school districts. It's still a disgrace. From the information I've seen thus far, I put a lot of the responsibility for this on incompetent admin who may have created a completely unmanageable and unsafe situation. I don't absolve the teacher, but admin has a job to do and I suspect they failed.
I taught 6 years in East Flatbush, Brooklyn during the late 80’s and NONE of my students were allowed out of their seats without permission. When they did so, they were not allowed to return to their seats (sent to the Dean’s Office) without permission.
It’s about tone; it’s about “rule of law” (that’s right!); it’s about who’s in charge. Period. It can be done. It is being done. It’s just not being done by the liberal teacher (not suggesting you) whose mindset is “Oh dear, what will they think of me if I request them to...”
Deep, deep down, high school kids know that rules/laws can have some pretty mean teeth. Some have been raised without first-hand experience with this. Others (many) have been groomed to see that there are far too many times where this is not the case—school being a place where this happens far too often. My experience has been when kids see the truth about rules/conduct/consequence many (not all, never all) will temper their tantrums. It all depends on what they see in front of the classroom.
I just left a parochial school where I was teaching in the inner city. It was in the de LaSallian tradition, and every morning's prayer was completed with an appeal to St. John Baptist De LaSalle. This school may be a mission school, or something close to it. There is a strong tradition in the Catholic schools of serving the poor. Some of the Catholic schools in the inner cities are now in very rough areas. That was the situation with the school in which I taught. The system as a whole was struggling financially, and in some of these schools most of the kids were having their tuition paid by others in the diocese. It was basically an educational charity.
The students we were serving came mostly from the local public and charter schools when their parents gave up on them, or moved a troubled child in one of a long string of attempts to educate them. Some of the kids were good kids with poor academic backgrounds, and others were thugs who came for the sports and little else. If the school where this took place was serving kids with disabilities and taking public funds for it, I suspect they were on a very tight budget, just as we were. That means no extra help in the classroom, and an admin that won't permit enrollment to drop even if that means keeping a thug in a classroom. I repeatedly raised issues of unruly kids, bad language, disrespect, threats, and bullying with my admin. The worst actors received demerits and were called to the disciplinarian. None were ever expelled, and few were ever suspended, let alone suspended from sports.
Teachers can be placed in impossible situations, even in parochial schools. The Catholic school where everything was orderly and disciplined under the watchful eyes of nuns with rulers are not what I experienced. It's a tough world in those inner city schools, whether they are parochial or public. When I had the opportunity to leave there for a safer suburban school, I took it. No regrets. My safety and well being outweigh any good I could have done there. I worked with very dedicated and good people, but the financial pressures on the admin were intense. I didn't agree with some of their decisions because I think in the long run they doom the school to a downward spiral in which parents of good kids will withdraw them and the only kids left will be those whom nobody else will accept. It is a form of charity to do this, but it's one in which I don't feel safe enough to function.
Totally agree, on both counts.
Sadly, there are no more Nuns.
They’re still out there, and I worked with quite a few. Most are getting on in years, however.
It was New York...... It was in NeoEuropa, the liberal utopia that must be purged from the American union
a classroom full of violent juvies - probably with sex offender histories.
One girl - special needs, low IQ.
And no one could see it coming before it happened.
it’s a school for juvies. They get sent here after they’ve been kicked out of all the other schools.
Teacher is accustomed to desk dancing
This was out on LI, not in NYC.
There is indeed. Oral sodomy or that involving animals.
Is she also accustomed to cries of pain from anal rape?
At a certain age a classroom full of kids could become a violent mob. The teacher would have to run for his life. There’s no mention here if the girl got medical attention or if the police were called (unless I missed it) . The police should have been called.
