Teacher abuses a student?

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?

  1. As a parent of a child with autism, this pinpoints everything we fear….that our child will never be able to stand up for themselves and will be the subject of abuse or being taken advantage of for the rest of their lives. Unfortunately, many of the assistants who ‘help’ special needs children have no further education past high school and no training on how to care for and educate these kids. It’s ridiculous.

  2. I cannot thank you enough for sharing this video clip because a very close and dear friend of mine has a son with autism and has had issues with the school they’re sending him to complaining about her son’s behavior. I never even thought that his behavior could have something to do with the manner in which he is being treated by his teachers.

    You’re right, this is revolting and the consequences they received were MINIMAL as best. That teacher should have her teaching certificate revoked and be forbidden to teach again.

    Again, thank you for sharing this and bringing it to light.

  3. Hi,
    I watched the video all the way through and disgusting behaviour by those in charge seems to light a word, the penalties should of been very severe, as a lesson to other teachers that this sort of thing will not under any circumstances be tolerated.
