NORWALK - Several parents are accusing a private school for special needs students in Norwalk of abusing their children.

Three parents of students at the High Road School say children have come home with scratches, bruises and even urine stains.

One of the children says he was pushed to the ground and kicked, then had his head slammed and dragged against the wall.

One of the families has filed a complaint with Norwalk police. Norwalk's public school district is also investigating after three other parents complained at this week's Board of Education meeting.

The board president says the district has had no prior complaints about the High Road School and has been sending students there for many years.
