Some of you who are commenting on this topic have no idea the abuse special ed teachers and teachers in general tolerate on a daily basis. There are kids out there who are mentally challenged and there are kids out there who are just plain not wanting to mind school rules.These kids can curse teachers, principals, cafeteria workers,hit, kick, spit, scream, cry, and harm other kids. Schools want all kids safe and they do what needs to be done to make sure school is safe for the kids who have mental issues as well as kids who obey school rules and behave. Before you judge a school or principal know the facts because some of you who are quick to judge would be singing a different tune if your kid was the one in the way of a child who was throwing a mad tantrum. These kids are strong and very hard to control. I am not speaking about this preschool case, but schools in general.

You're right many do all of the above. If a person isn't prepared to handle that, then they shouldn't become a teacher.

I work in the cafeteria at a large school. It is unbelievable to me how some kids behave at school. Parents can fuss all they want about my kid wouldn't do that or this but we have many kids who will. Some try to destroy school property, some do get mad and scream and many times curse words that some of the other little ones have never heard. They lay down on the floor and kick,yell and throw food. As for the older ones it is just plain bad manners. I don't know what is wrong with folks that have kids who can't control themselves but it is not ok for kid not to mind at school. Next they will not mind in the real world and they will be in a place where we put those who can't mind. It is called Jail.
Don't blame the schools and teachers these kids are your responsibility and you will be paying the fines and court costs when they get older if you don't get them under control now. Not talking about whipping and beating them just talk to them and listen. If they throw fits at home and talk back they are probably doing worse at school.

So the Winnipeg dummy has now had a sex change, and has become a woman. Before he/she protests that there are a lot of people living in Winnipeg, how many of them with an autistic son will be posting on the topix/autism forum, posting three posts on three different threads in the space of 8 minutes? He/she didn't think of that, did he/she. Not very smart.

I thought they had a special retard school for the retards. Why punish the normal kids by having a retard in class holding them back?

Kids with Asperger's Syndrome have a mild form of autism and are usually high functioning and as such are definitely NOT retards.
Would you class Albert Einstein as a retard, as he had many of the symptoms of Asperger's?

I would just like to know... it is not proven that this child even has autism? Can this mother produce and IEP or 504? The school legally can't comment and as a Daycare teacher in a nearby town I know that its not all that often that a diagnosis is made before kindergarten. I have a child who has ADHD/ADD and I am in no way comparing that to autism, but if I felt like he was being done wrong in school. I would handle it through the school... not paste his name and face all over the television and internet. I can't help but wonder what this mom is really after... I guess I try to see both sides because I work in a daycare and do deal with parents, so if you feel I am being harsh I apologize. I do feel like the reports have been very one-sided and would like to hear more before I jump all over the school for things that may be totally out of context.

You obviously haven't been to Dayton, Tennessee. Count yourself lucky. This is how many of the people in this town act. Many of them are low class, semi educated bigots. Don't waste your time trying to inform them, they don't care. Please understand that this is not the whole town though. There are some fine people there. One that would make a comment such as that will, sadly, not be changed.

Do a web search. It's very valid. We're talking about a child's behavior, be it true or not what they behavior was that led to no field trip. They wouldn't actually go to jail, they'd go to Juvie (charged then probably sent home but some kids do stay a while) and it all depends on each states ages. Some it's age 8, my state it's age 10 kids are accountable. All kids including special ed children. Just as one has the right to the same opportunities as general ed students, the rules apply to the whole student body at school. If a special ed child threatens or physically harms another, or destroys property, that teacher, school or other parent can file charges against that special ed child. Happens all the time. Special ed children don't get a free pass from that. These days you cant even hug a teacher, which is a problem for some special ed children who like to hug but even they have to learn you cant hug everyone in certain settings. In fact, another special ed student at my child's school was suspended for vandalizing the bus seats and throwing the foam pieces at another student, along with throwing food at another and calling them gay. Another student was suspended from the bus for hitting another child. The only thing that kept them from Juvie was the other parents not filing charges. One of my sisters is a Para in a self contained setting for junior high school ages. They get sent to Juvie all the time. One special ed child the other day broke a door window and has a habit of it.
These are all things most of us worry about. Some of our children are very gullible. If my child is talked into stealing something, he's going to get into trouble. If he's talked into to holding something and it turns out to be drugs, he's going to get into trouble. If he calls someone gay but doesn't understand the word, he's going to get into trouble.
Everyone has consequences for their actions, special ed included so as the one person was trying to explain, regardless it is the parents responsibility in the end.

I've done the maths, and there's about 1 chance in 250,000 that Canadian Mom and the Winnipeg dummy are not the same person.

Another big clue is some of his/her posts have been deleted. There's only one Winnipeg who fits that bill.

I've just noticed yet another three posts, all from Winnipeg within a few minutes of each other, one from Canadian Mom, and the other two from the Winnipeg dummy. He must be really stupid if he's trying to convince us that they are not the same person.

Looks like alot haters in this town. The mother wanted it to be known it is a free country. The teacher has no reason to be bulling on a kid with a disability. Hope the teacher gets in trouble because not right. Who she think she is? Guess she didn't think anyone will tell. Some people has back bones.

Very aggravated to read the comments about Dayton not being educated to know about laws pertaining to special needs children. First we are not sure this child has been diagnosed and has an IEP. If the child does not the parent has no legal right to blame the school. As for the comments from cafeteria lady , I am sure she was talking about children who don't mind authority ending up in jail. Also there are many cases where mentally challenged people break laws and end in jaill or mental hospitals. Again DCS can't comment to defend themselves but county schools do seem to have better Special Ed. Programs.

My only thing is... who says the mother is being honest... you should hear out both sides and get as many details as possible before you jump on any side.
