IRVINGTON - Authorities in Irvington, along with the Essex County Prosecutor's Office and school officials, are conducting an investigation after they say a school teacher was beaten by a student.

An emergency faculty meeting was held at Irvington High School Wednesday afternoon, but teachers leaving the meeting weren't eager to discuss the incident.

Officials say Muideen Oladoja, 44, was taken to Newark Beth Israel Hospital with head and facial injuries as a result of the attack. The teacher has since been released from the hospital and is now recovering at home.

Authorities say a 16-year-old female and a 14-year-old male, who have not been identified, are facing aggravated assault charges. Other students are also being questioned. The superintendent says students linked to the assault have already been suspended and could also be expelled.
