Chancellor Klein:   In an obvious abuse of authority and a total
disregard for employee rights, members of your staff have wrongfully removed Aja

like that will ever happen again.     Moreover, the teacher, who caged the
student, made racist comments about "...feeding time at the zoo" and referred to
the student as a "wild animal".   The statements were heard by students and
staff....
