Parent Voices Concerns Over Teacher Behavior

There was yet more drama at a Secaucus Board of Education meeting last week when John Schwartz requested the new board suspend his daughter’s fourth-grade teacher for alleged harassment.

Schwartz, who is the Secaucus recreation facility director, claims his daughter and other students were verbally harassed by the unnamed Huber Street School teacher starting last fall. The family eventually moved the daughter to Clarendon School after she was diagnosed with a case of stress-related shingles.

The concerned father reprimanded the previous board for not taking action and claims that his daughter wore a recording device for 2 1/2 days and caught examples of the abuse on tape.

The board gave no response to the allegations on the grounds that it was a personal matter.
