CHRISTIAN BREAKING NEWS: Florence Christian School, a Ministry of Florence Baptist Temple, Florence, South Carolina Sued over Alleged Student Abuse, Teacher Negligence [#FCSEagles #FlorenceChristianSchool #FlorenceBaptistTemple]
A student and his family sued Florence Christian School, saying that he was abused in class while his teacher did nothing.
Court filings indicate that Michael Baron Smith III, a teacher and coach, did not interfere when another student choked John Doe.
The action, filed Jan. 25 in the United States District Court for the District of South Carolina, also says that Smith regularly unfairly singled out John Doe as a punishment by requiring him to perform more hard and unreasonable physical activities than other children.
The family, identified as James, Jane, and John Doe, is suing Florence Baptist Temple, Florence Christian School, Smith, and an unnamed child known as S.P.
Court records also state that Florence Christian School and Florence Baptist Temple were careless and negligent.
According to the lawsuit, the school did not take any remedial action against Smith, nor did it investigate the incident, notify authorities, investigate Smith’s claimed prejudice, or protect Doe from exposure to S.P. after the 1-day ban.
According to court filings, Doe will require medical care, such as therapy, for the rest of his life as a result of the alleged attack.
The Doe family also claims that S.P.’s alleged attack, as well as Smith and Florence Christian School’s reactions to the assault, caused long-term harm to John Doe.
