Oak Forest, Illinois-Oak Forest police are investigating allegations of abuse imposed on teachers in the Indian Springs School District after a video of the incident was shared online.
Nicole Cornita, a language teacher at Wilkins Middle School of Justice, has been charged with domestic violence involving a five-year-old boy. School officials say she was on vacation while she was waiting for the investigation.
In early March, a video recorded from inside the house appeared to show that Oak Forest residents slapped and pushed a little boy and cursed him. He is believed to be the son of her fiancée.
In a letter to parents, the school district’s superintendent, Blair Nuccio, said there was some public attention to the video of the teacher and the children taking care of her. He said the video event did not take place at school and did not involve students in the district. He added that they did not find any evidence that the teacher was physically harmful to any student.
Cornita has been temporarily suspended, but some parents want her to be fired soon.
She was released on her own initiative and ordered not to contact the victims.
Cornita will return to court on April 8.
