The State

October 28, 1987

School officials in San Francisco said they are looking into allegations from a woman who claims that her retarded son was beaten with wooden rods and gagged with tape at a school for the handicapped. The mother, Betty Simmerman, made the charges as she filed a $5-million Superior Court lawsuit against the San Francisco school district. Simmerman contends that her son, Robert Clausing, 21, was beaten daily by his teacher during a three-month period in the fall of 1986.
