Moms suing city schools claiming their kids were strip searched at BX school

The mothers of four boys are suing the New York City school system claiming the fourth-graders were strip searched last spring at P.S. 186X, a special education school.

The federal suit states that the boys were strip searched by an aide who was looking for a missing ring that belonged to a female teacher. The suit also says the boys were told they would be arrested if they didn't agree to strip.

Department of Education officials say the aide has been reassigned to administrative duties while the chancellor's office investigates the allegations. The attorney for the parents says two of the boys have moved to another school and the other two wish to be transferred.
