Florida Teacher & Students Vote Kid Out Of Class — He’s 5 Yrs Old

Originally posted at Dvorak.org

“Teacher lets Morningside students vote out classmate, 5Melissa Barton said she is considering legal action after her son’s kindergarten teacher led his classmates to vote him out of class.

After each classmate was allowed to say what they didn’t like about Barton’s 5-year-old son, Alex, his Morningside Elementary teacher Wendy Portillo said they were going to take a vote, Barton said.

By a 14 to 2 margin, the students voted Alex — who is in the process of being diagnosed with autism — out of the class.”

  1. Shame on the school district that hired such a lousy teacher!
    How DARE that teacher treat a child, any child, like that!
    My own son has Asperger’s, was diagnosed at the age of 6 and thank God he had a wonderful Kindergarten teacher who understood that each child is important and should be treated with respect! He is now an honor roll student starting high school in the fall.
    My thoughts and prayers are with Melissa Barton and her son Alex. Unfortunately he has learned at an early age how cruel some people can me, especially if they are egged on my their teacher. But, with the love and strength of his family, Alex will get past this horrible incident, he will thrive, and be the better young man for it.
    God bless Alex and his family.
    Shame on that woman who calls herself a teacher, Wendy Portillo!
