Should there be more teacher surveillance in the classroom? CNN education contributor Steve Perry weighs in

One of the teachers accused of being caught on audio tape bullying a 10-year-old boy with autism is on paid leave this morning.
But Kelly Altenburg's attorney says his client wasn't even at work that day.

The stunning recordings were caught on tape after Stuart Chaiffetz sent his son Akian to school wearing a recording device. You can see Soledad's interview with Stuart here.

Many special-needs advocates call this a wakeup call for school districts across the nation. But should parents be wiring their kids to monitor their teachers?

CNN education contributor Steve Perry talks with Soledad on "Starting Point" this morning on the story, and agrees with parents who want increased monitoring of their children's teachers.
