7- Year-Old Student Assaulted By Tutor That Wasn’t Screened In Hiring Process
Yesterday, we reported the tragic story of a 7-year-old Baltimore student who was allegedly assaulted by an educator while walking to the office for disciplinary reasons at the end of the school day earlier this week.
Travon Grayson had his jaw broken by 25-year-old tutor Timothy Randall Korr after footage of the incident surfaced while police investigated the assault. According to The Baltimore Sun, the ain’t isht educator was not screened by the school system prior to working with the students at City Springs Elementary School.
School system spokesman Edie House-Foster said the Baltimore Curriculum Project, which runs City Springs and several other charter schools in the city, hired Korr as a tutor.
Korr held a position created by the Baltimore Curriculum Project and not the school system. Korr was not hired or screened by the school system’s human resources department, as is the case with most employees, House-Foster said.
Korr has since been charged with felony first- and second-degree child abuse, felony first- and misdemeanor second-degree assault, misdemeanor reckless endangerment and misdemeanor neglect of a minor.
