Julio Artuz, 15-Year-Old Special Needs Student, Records Teacher Verbally Abusing Him
No one believed 15-year-old Julio Artuz when he said he was being bullied by a teacher at school — not even his parents.
So the special needs student sought proof, by filming an encounter with said teacher at Bankbridge Regional School in New Jersey, NBC10 reports.
“Don’t call me special,” Artuz told the teacher.
“What? Oh my god, f-ing. What does the sign on the front of the school say? Special education,” the teacher yelled back.
Artuz defended himself by saying that when he got out of the school, the teacher couldn’t call him special anymore. In response, the teacher made a threat.

In a statement to NBC10, the school district said officials take allegations of harassment seriously and are carrying out an investigation.
