Stuart Chaifetz, Autism Dad, Sends Son to School with Wire, Records Verbal Abuse by Teachers

Stuart Chaifetz, Father, Puts Wire On Son With Autism, Records Verbal Abuse From Teachers (VIDEO)

When Stuart Chaifetz sent his 10-year-old son to New Jersey's Horace Mann Elementary School wearing a wire, he couldn't have predicted the audio he would uncover. 
The wiring came as a reaction to accusations from the school that his son Akian was having "violent outbursts,"including hitting his teacher and teacher's aide -- claims that Chaifetz says are simply against his son's "sweet and non-violent" nature. 
To Chaifetz's shock, Akian, a student with Autism, returned with a tape containing hours of verbal and emotional abuse from his classroom aide and teacher, which the father documented and published in an emotional YouTube video.
