Marysville, WA (KING) — A Marysville, Washington teacher and para-educator have been pulled from the classroom as police look into allegations that they abused a special needs student.
The mother of a student at Kellogg Marsh Elementary filed a police report and got an attorney after she says her autistic son came home with his underwear ripped nearly in half, and no explanation from the school as to what happened.
