Sometimes, I am not a very forgiving person.
This is going to be another one of those times.
NM Teacher's Aide Tapes Mouth of Autistic Student
Okay...she hasn't escaped scott-free: the school district suspended her for a week without pay, but...that's not enough. Even she AND the teacher in the room at the time admit that the tape was applied...but insist it was done 'playfully'.
Um....no. No, No, No. What if the kid had a stuffed up nose, and had a hard time breathing? Doesn't sound much different than waterboarding.
I'm more than willing to give someone a 2nd chance because of an accident. But not for doing something willfully stupid to a handicapped kid in a wheel chair.
