The executive of a Staten Island summer program accused attack an epileptic child and covering the child’s face with his hands has been barred from operative in city schools, the Education Department pronounced Saturday.
Robert Busan was cuffed at Public School 861 in Graniteville 2:15 p.m. Friday after police pronounced he put his hands over the 10-year-old’s mouth and nose.
Police sources pronounced that the 64-year-old was trying to still the child after he slapped his hand.
Education Department orator Michael Aciman pronounced Busan will not be returning to work in city classrooms.
“These allegations are deeply discouraging and this particular is no longer authorised to work in Department of Education schools,” Aciman said.
But one primogenitor whose child attends the stay pronounced that her son told her Busan had playfully slapped the boy’s palm and squeezed his cheeks during a water balloon fight.
“It was some-more like a daub on the palm than a hit,” pronounced the parent, who declined to give her name. “And he never covered the boy’s mouth or nose whatsoever.”
She pronounced her son told her that Busan had educated the child to stop and listen and the child ran off crying.
