In a shockingly cruel story out of Florida, a kindergarten teacher recently held a public classroom vote to decide whether a five-year-old boy should be kicked out of the class:
The mother of a five-year-old who was voted out of his kindergarten class is considering a suit against the teacher. The children were allowed to tell the boy everything they disliked about him, and then voted on whether he would stay in the class…Alex hasn’t been back to school since then, and Barton said he won’t be returning. He starts screaming when she brings him with her to drop off his sibling at school.
Thursday night, his mother heard him saying “I’m not special” over and over.
As a mother, this literally made me cry. That poor child! What is wrong with that teacher? She’s lucky that I am not Alex’s mother, or I promise you that she surely would have been beaten up by now. I hope she gets fired and that charges are filed against the school.
