AKRON -- An educational assistant under investigation for allegedly pulling a special needs student down a school hallway by his ankles submitted his resignation Friday.
Ingram Myers, 50, was placed on paid leave from Ellet High School Jan. 19 after witnesses said he pulled the student, who suffers from severe autism, 50-100 feet down a hallway.
School leaders and Akron Police are continuing to investigate the allegations.
The student's mother, Denise Fabian-Powers, said Myers' resignation is only part of her desire.
"I really want to see that this aide is not only removed from the school district, but from his place of employment and something is done is criminally, so that there's something on his record, so that he cannot work with this population in a school district."
