A New Jersey man has launched a website to publicize what he calls "a culture of bullying" by teachers in his son's Cherry Hill classroom after sending the boy -- who has been diagnosed with autism -- to school with a covert recording device.

Stuart Chaifetz said he placed the recorder in the pocket of his 10-year-old son, Akian, in an attempt to find out why staffers at Horace Mann Elementary School had reported that the boy had been acting out and hitting his teachers.

What surfaced was more than six hours of recordings of what he says are teachers and aides apparently talking about alcohol and sex in front of the class, punctuated by yelling at his son to "shut your mouth."

The same thing happened to another kid with cerebral palsy not so long ago. I see things like this and my blood boils. My 5 year old is non verbal and I am considering bugging his shoes or book bag. I can definitely happily go to jail if someone was to mistreat him. In fact I will go to the beat down with earrings to match my handcuffs

Hmm...there's always two sides to a story, but I am not comfortable with every parent/student arming themselves with recorders to school. Isn't that borderline illegal anyway?

of course there're two sides to a story, but it'd be pretty hard for them to dispute what is on the recordings, no matter how illegal the covert recording is. might not be admissible in court (i don't know, i'm no lawyer) but the dad has put it out there so people know what these people are doing in the school.

What is the second side to the story. A teacher calls a child that cannot defend himself a bastard. Really? Yeah I can't wait to hear the other side of how the kid held a gun to the teachers head and made him call his a bastard.
