The mother of a student filed a lawsuit Tuesday against the Chicago Board of Education, claiming that one of their employees bullied and showed her son pornography in the lunch room for two weeks.

Monique Clark filed the lawsuit in Cook County Circuit Court claiming that on March 23, 2015, an employee of Bradwell Communication Arts and Sciences Academy showed her son – who is a minor with an intellectual disability – “a Facebook video of a naked man dancing and twirling his penis around,” according to the lawsuit.

The lawsuit states that the employee “made several statements to [her son] that this was his father and that this was ‘going to be you in a couple of years.'”

The employee had been bothering the minor for two weeks before the incident. Teachers, administrators and a security guard in the lunch room knew and saw the employee speaking to her son and other students, which was not part of his job responsibilities, according to the lawsuit.

The Chicago Board of Education failed to protect her son and its students. As a result, her son suffered permanent injuries, according to the lawsuit.

The one-count lawsuit is seeking $50,000 in damages.

The Chicago Board of Education could not immediately comment on the lawsuit.
