TULSA, Okla. -- Shocking and disturbing accusations of abuse against a north Tulsa teacher after a mother claims her daughter was shoved into a school locker. Monday, Save Our Youth and the mother met with school administrators and plan to view the surveillance video Tuesday.
It’s one of those days where 7-year-old Jalianna Moore just wants a ride.
“If she had the audacity to shove and abuse my baby and stuff her into a locker, there’s no telling how many times she’s done this and there’s no telling how many other kids have been hurt," Jalianna's mom Lisa Scott said.
Lisa Scott claims that happened to her first grader by a teacher last week at Greenwood Leadership Academy.
“This is my child and she’s disabled and I wouldn’t want her to ever hurt anyone at that school or at any other school in America," she said. “She can’t communicate the right way.”
Save Our Youth was with Scott as school administrators spoke for the first time Monday. They gave us a copy of their recording.
“If something is going on, go to the teacher go to the counselor, these are people we are suggesting they go to," Save Our Youth executive director Sandra Givens said. "What happens when it is the teacher abusing the child?"
A ride around the block brings out Jalianna's beautiful smile.
“I want her to be fired and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law," Scott said.
Scott is hoping her baby will soon find a teacher who loves her for her.
Greenwood Leadership Academy is run by the Met Cares Foundation. They say they are working with TPS campus police to continue an internal investigation to determine the credibility of the allegations.
