This story has me so ticked off that I just cannot believe it. For those of you too lazy to click, a teacher had her kindergarten students vote whether or not they wanted a special needs kid to stay in the class, and had them say what they didn't like about this kid... TO THE KID.
I'm a big believer in seeing the other side of this story, but I cannot, for the life of me, understand how this teacher can think that standing this boy up in front of his classroom and asking all of the other students what they don't like about him is okay. I'm sure he's a pretty big handful, but DAMN, you are paid to deal with handfuls to the best of your ability, not DENIGRATE THEM.
Somebody would've had to hold me down, son. That teacher should absolutely be fired, but not before each of the students' parents tell her what they don't like about her. See how it feels, you jerk?
2 of the 16 other students voted to keep the kid in the class. Those 2 kids' parents should be on fire with pride. They went against the popularity and herd mentality and the teacher's clear desires and voted to keep this little boy in the classroom.
Also, mom's annoying. What the teacher did was crappy, but not so much with the comparisons to Al Qaeda, mkay?
