The family of a 7-year-old Baltimore boy said this week that their son was assaulted by an educator at his elementary school.
Lateekqua Jackson and Trayvon Grayson Sr. told WBAL-TV that their son, Trayvon Grayson, was assaulted on Monday at City Springs Elementary/Middle School.
“My son told me that [the teacher] threw my son into a wall,” Jackson explained. “My son had dreams about it all last night. He’s still shaking in his sleep, saying that he keeps having visions of [the teacher] throwing him into a wall.”
On Wednesday afternoon, Jackson told WJZ that her son’s jaw was broken and that two of his teeth were missing.
The teacher was identified as 25-year-old Timothy Randall Korr, an employee of the Baltimore Curriculum Project charter operation. The educator said that he was taking the 7 year old to the principal’s office for disrupting class when the incident occurred.
“The teacher told me that he put him over his shoulder, and when he put him down he was bleeding,” Jackson recalled. “That’s it. How can you tell somebody like that? He said he made a mistake. He said, ‘I made a mistake. It was a mistake.’ That’s what he said.”
After examining school security footage, child abuse detectives obtained a warrant for Korr’s arrest.
The Baltimore Curriculum Project revealed on Wednesday that Korr had been fired.
“We are heartsick that this child suffered this injury,” the group said in a statement. “We pray for his complete and quick recovery and for his family as well.”
Korr was booked on charges of 1st and 2nd degree child abuse, 1st and 2nd degree assault, reckless endangerment and neglect of a minor.

Stephen Colbert rips ‘idiot’ GOP senator for defending Trump’s unconstitutional self-dealing
"Late Show" host Stephen Colbert returned from New Zealand for a new show that aired Monday evening.
"I have been as far from the insatiable black hole of news that is Donald Trump as you can get on this planet.
I've heard there have been some developments over the last 10 days that did not go well for Donnie,"
The host ripped Trump's 71-minute press conference.
"Seventy-one minutes is not a press conference, it's a one man show," he explained. "If you liked 'Fleabag,' you'll love Donald Trump in 'Douchebag,'" he said.

Donald Trump is making a mockery of Marco Rubio — and the Florida senator is letting him
Sen. Marco Rubio was once one of Donald Trump’s most formidable opponents; now, the Florida senator bends over backward to excuse the president’s corruption.
In 2016, Rubio and Trump sparred frequently on the Republican primary debate stage. Trump picked the uninspired nickname “Little Marco” for the senator, which didn’t seem to do much damage on its own, but Rubio never gained the momentum or strength that his backers hoped would prove to be strong enough to take down the reality TV candidate. As Rubio grew desperate, he launched one of his most memorable and pitiful attacks by stooping to his opponent’s level, implying that Trump had a small penis. It was more of an embarrassing moment for Rubio than anyone else, though Trump helped himself with a crude rejoinder.
The faith of Fox News: How the network’s propaganda warps viewers’ sense of reality
A longtime sticking point among Fox News employees is their insistent differentiation between its news division, where employees practice actual journalism, and its opinion division, where employees practice actual nativism, spew misinformation, and have been actively campaigning for Donald Trump’s re-election since 2016. Inside the organization, they claim to believe that the news side is separate from the opinion side, and insist that the audience can tell the difference.
News anchor Shepard Smith once characterized comparing the two as “apples and teaspoons.”
