Lexington schools deny locking child in ‘closet’

Lexington rebuts father’s article

A father’s account, published over the weekend, of how his daughter was repeatedly locked in a “closet” as a Lexington kindergartner in 2006 prompted a rebuttal Monday from the town’s school superintendent, leaving conflicting accounts of exactly what happened to her six years ago.

Bill Lichtenstein, 55, of Newton, said Monday that his daughter Rose, who is now 12, continues to suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder as a result of the treatment she received while enrolled at the Fiske Elementary School. His account first appeared Sunday in an op-ed article in The New York Times.
