JACKSON COUNTY, MS (WLOX) - Parents and community members spoke out Monday night at the Jackson County Board of Education meeting. They are demanding answers after a video surfaced showing alleged abuse of a special needs student by her teacher on a school bus.
WLOX has not been able to gain access to that video because it shows minors.
The family of the girl in the video showed up to Monday's meeting. They wouldn't make an official comment without their lawyer present but talked with other parents while waiting for the meeting to start. Several people held signs, one reading "be a voice for the voiceless" another said, "we need answers".
Board members commented following Holly's speech, saying they support the parents and will cooperate with the Mississippi Department of Education investigation.
