    Florida Teacher Allegedly Lets Kindergarteners Kick Autistic Boy Out of Class in 'Survivor'-Like Vote

    http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,358956,00.html



    Hundreds of parents of autistic children are signing an online petition to get Florida teacher Wendy Portillo fired for her alleged tactics toward a 5-year-old boy that mirror the reality show “Survivor.”
    Morningside Elementary School in Port St. Lucie, Fla., alerted Melissa Barton this year that her son, Alex, suffers from a high-functioning form of autism called Asperger's Syndrome, FOX 29 reported.
    Barton claims that Alex was punished for symptoms of his disability, such as humming and eating his homework. She says Portillo went too far last week when she kicked Alex out of class, and then allowed the other students to vote on whether he should be allowed back in.

    Each student was also allowed to say what he or she did not like about Alex. By a 14-to-2 margin, the students voted Alex out of class, according to The South Florida Sun-Sentinel.
    “She said this was her way of correcting his behavior,” Barton said. “I asked him how that made him feel and he said, ‘I feel sad.’

    Barton has filed a complaint with Morningside's school resource officer, who investigated the matter, Port St. Lucie Police Department spokeswoman Michelle Steele told the Sun-Sentinel.
    But the state attorney's office decided the matter did not meet criteria for emotional child abuse, so no criminal charges will be filed, Steele said.
    The teacher has been disciplined, however.
    “Ms. Portillo has been reassigned outside of the classroom at the district offices until any further action may be determined," St. Lucie County School District said in a statement.
    Alex has not returned to school since the incident, and Barton says he won’t be going back.
    "He was incredibly upset," Barton told the Sun-Sentinel. "The only friend he has ever made in his life was forced to do this."

    this woman has no business around children
    http://www.allpoetry.com/Grunts%20Girl

    We dallied under
    Vine maples and sapling alders
    Searched for lady slippers
    But instead
    Found blackberry riots and
    Desiccated branches

    An old skid road
    Brought ghost ferns and
    Hollows filled with
    Skunk cabbage
    While waves wrapped
    Intricate lacings of weeds
    'Round mule spinners

    His cyanotic eyes
    Were hard enough to make
    The sun turn tail and
    Tender enough to attract me
    To his world of illusion

    5 is a little young. If you were going to do something like that to a teenager, I don't think it would be as bad. But children are going to be children, regardless of any disorders.

    Poor little guy has enough to contend with and she has to make things worse for him. Ostracizing a 5yo, hope it made her feel important.

    Yes, children are going to be children, and children are often cruel to one another. However in this case their actions were condoned and/or directed by their teacher and that is reprehensible.

    I'm not sure what your trying to tell me. I meant "Children will be children" in regards to the child that was kicked out. She should have the patience to deal with him rather than do something so mean. Because, disorders aside, he's going to act like a 5 year old.

    It was a horribly cruel thing to do to a small child. If she doesn't have the common sense to not be evil to children she shouldn't be a teacher.
