Union County dad to address school board about video

By Chris Kieffer/NEMS Daily Journal

Brian Randle, the father of the East Union High School student whom was seen being punched by another student in an online video, says he will speak to the Union County School board Monday night.

Randle said that he planned to address the Union County School board at Monday’s 5 p.m. meeting. Although law prohbits Union County Superintendent Ken Basil from disclosing what discipline was handed down in this case, Randle said he will advocate that the violators are sent to the district’s alternative school.

In the video, Randle’s son, a 16-year old special needs student, appears to be totally caught off-guard when he was struck by another student in the school’s gym.
