Do You Believe Me Now?

Since August, a teacher at Atlanta's Harper Archer Middle School has complained to her superiors about a behavior specialist and a para pro working in a special needs classroom. She told them the two were disrespectful and rough with the children, but no one believed her. So she set up a hidden camera in the classroom. The video she recorded shows Alger Coleman and Keisha Smith, beating and berating students. Coleman has been charged with battery and cruelty to a child. Smith has not been charged with a crime, but she faces a disciplinary hearing.
