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 his Rose, now 12, suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder. His account first appeared Sunday in an op-ed article in the New York Times.
