A tutor in the Baltimore school system, who wasn’t properly screened, brutally assaulted a 7-year-old kid.
According to WBAL TV, 7-year-old Travon Grayson, a student at City Springs Elementary/Middle School, suffered mouth and facial injuries when a substitute teacher threw him into a wall while escorting him to the school’s main office for a disciplinary issue.
“My son told me that (the assistant teacher) threw my son into a wall,” Travon’s mother Lateekqua Jackson said. “My son had dreams about it all last night. He’s still shaking in his sleep, saying that he keeps having visions of (the assistant teacher) throwing him into a wall.”
Timothy Randall Korr faces first- and second-degree child abuse, first- and second-degree assault, reckless endangerment and neglect charges, police said. He has been terminated by the Baltimore Curriculum Project, the school’s charter operator.
A school system spokesman said the Baltimore Curriculum Project, which runs City Springs and several other charter schools in the city, hired Korr as a tutor. Korr held a position created by the Baltimore Curriculum Project and not the school system. Korr was not hired or screened by the school system’s human resources department.
