Friendship Public Charter School


WASHINGTON - A teacher at Friendship Public Charter School has been placed on administrative leave after allegedly taping a nine-year-old visually impaired student to a chair.

The alleged incident happened Wednesday afternoon during an after school tutoring program at the Friendship Blow Pierce Junior Academy Campus in Northeast.

Christian Washington, a fourth grade student, says he asked his teacher if he could get up, and when he did for a second time, the teacher first threatened to tape him to his chair, and then did. Washington says he was wrapped with the tape several times around his chest and his legs. He says he was embarrassed.

"She was laughing. Everybody in the class was laughing at me," Washington says...

Terik Washington says Christian is visually impaired, and she placed him at Friendship because he had been taunted by other students at his previous school. She says it has been just as bad at Friendship, and now for a teacher to cross the line, she's heartbroken...

Friendship Public Charter Schools has filed for bankruptcy! Hey Donald Hense, where's the money?

Hense is a crook and they're stealing money from poor people in Southeast DC. Those people had better wise up and ask how the money, their TAX money is being spent. Crooks.
