"the state attorney's office concluded the matter did not meet the criteria for emotional child abuse..."


Okay! I think the attorney general needs to be examined. NOT emotional child abuse?!! I can't imagine what the 14 classmates said about the poor boy. The article said the students told him what they didn't like about him. Oh, and, yes! We all know how cruel children can be. The poor boy has to feel crushed.

Out to the teacher, for sure. She shouldn't be allowed to teach again.

The whole story sickened me.

Hoo boy I could go on about this one. Poor kid has Aspergers and no one thought to educate his teacher and classmates about what that means? Geez! The teacher made a huge mistake, no doubt about it, but this is a classic case of non communication and not enough education on the part of the teacher AND the adminstration of the school. Poor kids. And I mean ALL the kids.

As a special education teacher reading this, it turned my stomach. The only solace is that the child has an IEP (Individualized Education Plan) in place. This will give the parents a foundation for reprecussion.

Update: St. Lucie teacher reassigned after student 'voted out' of class

She's out of the classroom, for now at least.

Out of the classroom isn't good enough! She should be sent to some serious therapy. No child should ever have to experience something like that, no matter what kind of problems he/she creates in the classroom. Wonder where she took HER child psych courses.....

stoning would be to fast and easy, she needs something more slow and painful, hmm the story of William Wallace comes to mind.

The teacher should be glad she didn't do that to MY CHILD!! I don't think she'd like LIFE too much anymore!

I wouldn't go for stoning - too savage middle eastern like - but if I were boss she would never work in that county again.
