For the last few posts I have stuck with light hearted and fun posts to try and get a laugh out of my followers. But as always something comes up that really bothers me and I think it is my job as a blogger to make people aware of the situation and give them the option to get involved.
This story is about a kid with autism. This child kept having reports sent home that he was acting out in physical and verbal manners. The parents went through all the proper channels to find out exactly what was wrong and no one could diagnose this behavioral problem. The father decided that he was going to put a bug on his kid to get to the root of the problem. What the father found out was absolutely revolting. Please watch the video below to understand what I am talking about:
To sum it up, the father found out that his son was verbally abused by his teachers. Not only that but the teachers were having inappropriate conversations with one another in front of these kids! The video is absolutely revolting and the consequences they received were minimal at best. The head teacher was fired but nothing more was done. There is a petition that goes along with this and if you are as disturbed as I am please take the time to sign the petition. I cant stand the idea that more kids have to deal with the kind of abuse this child did.

How do you feel about how this situation was handled?
