NYC school workers charged with abusing Korean exchange-students

Yahoo! National News - Fri, 08/08/2014 - 04:45
By Laila Kearney NEW YORK (Reuters) - The wife of a private school owner and an employee were accused of withholding food and bathroom privileges from underage foreign-exchange students from Korea to discipline them, prosecutors said on Thursday. Sun Kyung Park, 33, and Min Kyung Chea, 34, both residents of the New York borough of Queens, also were accused of hitting the four students, who range in age from 9 to 11 years old, at Crown Academy. "The young victims in this case came to the United States from Korea without their parents who paid considerable sums of money to send their children abroad to learn English and obtain an education," Queens District Attorney Richard Brown said in a statement "The defendants had an obligation to provide a safe environment for the students and keep them from harm – which they are accused of failing to fulfill," Brown said. Prosecutors say Chea and Park punished students for getting bad grades or being noisy by forcing them to hold stacks of books above their heads for extended time periods, striking them with spiral notebooks and throwing school supplies at their faces.
