So I'm at an activity tonight and someone starts talking about an autistic boy being kicked out of class. Being the media nut that I am, I googled it and found the details. A 5-year-old a boy, Alex, who is in the process of being diagnosed with autism, was having "disciplinary" problems in class. The teacher called him to the front of the class and had the kids say what they disliked about him. "Annoying," one said. "Disgusting," said another. They then held a vote whether he should stay in class or be forced to leave. The vote was 14-2. What the heck is this?? What 5-year-old can even say those kind of things? And who gave that idiot teacher the right to publicly humiliate him?! (mr. rohnkohl take note) I was APPALLED.
