5 y.o. kindergarten student "voted out" of his class?!?!?!?!

What the?!?!?!?!?! What is the world coming to?

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.

How rude and how wrong to do that to a child.

I can't even describe how wrong that is.
If I were a smarter person I'd homeschool.

I keep going over it and imagining the whole thing, getting sicker to my stomach the more I think about it. That poor child, and for the school only to say "they are investigating". Who in thier right mind could do such a thing to a child!

That is just sickening. Sounds like a truly incompetent teacher to me. I realize there are some kids who are more difficult than others, but this one apparently has identified problems. Seems as tho if the teacher couldn't handle him in her class, she should have taken that up with her principal.

It's terrible to let kids think it's okay to do that to another kid, and it's even worse what it apparently has done to this little one.

Appalling!

14 to 2!?!?

man, he musta been some p.i.t.a.

i guess there's two more kids that gotta go...

j/k.

a point being missed, i think, is what does this teach all of the kids in the class? not just the kid who was ousted.

this isn't just some small mistake by the teacher. she abused all of the kids by putting them in that position, and should be fired.
