Chester County Principal Suspended Over Controversial Comments

Posted: Updated:

A Chester County principal has been suspended over what he said about a student in a letter to teachers.

David Madden will be back as the principal of Oxford Area High School in the Fall of 2012, but he will not be working with special education students.

That decision was made by the school board after email's surfaced where Madden's derogatory and embarrassing statements about special needs kids got him in hot water.

One woman was even shut down by one of 4 state troopers on hand.

Madden is under fire for an email where he was referring to a senior special education student described as being bi-polar with social issues.


Madden complains how the student "works the system" even describes him as a "psychopath"..who has more rights than the people he stalks"  He also compared the student's actions to famous assassins writing "the same thing can be said for Hinkley, Booth and Oswald"

Fox 29's Chris O'Connell asked Madden for a statement, but he raced out of the meeting without comment -  never explaining why he wrote those emails.
