I See . . . Bored Educational Assistants

Filed under: Politics — lmwalker @ 4:40 pm

A school in Canada had a family investigated for abuse on the vague “insight” of a psychic:

The mother of an autistic girl says the public school board was “completely unprofessional” to formulate a theory that her daughter was being sexually abused based on a psychic’s perception . . .

[Colleen] Leduc said they advised her that Victoria’s educational assistant (EA) had visited a psychic, who said a youngster whose name started with “V” was being sexually abused by a man between 23 and 26 years old. Leduc was also handed a list of recent behaviours exhibited by her daughter.

School principal Brian Tremain — who referred phone calls seeking comment to the board — advised Leduc that the [Children’s Aid Society] had been contacted.

Someone in Canda is very bored. But I wonder if there is any recourse for the mother. Is she able to sue the EA for the time wasted with this nonsense?

  1. Clearly, matters of the supernatural have no place in our schools.
