I don't know. I've just watched NBC news @ 5:55 pm and they covered the story. They said they haven't entirely diagnosed him and that the teacher "remains in the classroom".
I'm in Lee, Charlotte, Collier county news area, so I'm closer than some. But the coverage was still the same. This child suffered. He looks rather like a 5 year old to me from what they showed, which makes it more troubling. If he has bouts, you'd have to know something UNUSUAL was wrong. Why wouldn't you want to help him?

I just heard about this on CBS's morning show today. Here's a link:
5 y.o. voted out of class.

I have several children that are "special needs". This kind of behavior is totally unacceptable in a teacher, IMHO.

Not surprised.

If an airline will throw a 3-year-old boy off a plane for waving to another plane and saying "Bye-bye, plane", then yes, THIS is sure to follow.

Little kids are also treated like criminals, which they shouldn't be!

Has anyone heard anything else about this?
I was just thinking of the book titled, ALL I REALLY NEED TO KNOW I LEARNED IN KINDERGARTEN. and got a lump in the pit of my stomach.

I just keep thinking about how in Ed school they first taught us that if you lose a child's interest in school in kindergarten, you often have lost him forever. Conversely, a child who is engaged early is more likely to develop a real love for learning.

wonder where this teacher went to school. They couldn't have taught her that there.......

Wine is the food that completes the meal.
