Former teacher at Lake Grove School claims abuse occurring on campus
A former teacher at the Lake Grove School spoke out Monday about claims there is abuse occurring on campus.
The Lake Grove School is a boarding school for emotionally disturbed teens. Alec Katz says he was fired from his job two years ago after allegations of physical abuse. Katz was later cleared after an investigation. He says since he left, there have been two rapes at the school.
Katz also claims students were involved with drug use and dealing, and that the staff used excessive force to calm the students. Lake Grove Administrator Norman Alperin denies all allegations of abuse. He says the students are supervised at all times and that there are 50 cameras on campus. However, Katz says the cameras are not in the bathrooms, classrooms and bedrooms.
