Her father was shocked to learn it was Cheyanne’s teachers doing the bullying. After notifying school administrators and being turned away, Cheyanne was outfitted with a hidden tape recorder in class. Over a four-day period the abusive remarks made by two middle school teachers were recorded. The contents of those tapes are alarming.
