Father Sends Autistic Son To School Wearing a Wire; Disgusted By What He Heard
A story from the Huffington Post feeds every parents nightmare, it will break your heart. A father was getting reports that his autistic son was becoming increasingly violent in school. Puzzled by it, the father finally put a recording device on the child and sent him to school. What he heard in that six hours of audio compelled him to post a video on YouTube.
He feels the boy’s meltdowns are a direct result of the teachers actions. The video is more than 17 minutes long. At 3:21 you can hear a woman scream at the class to shut up. At 4:37 you hear a woman talking to another adult about having too much wine the night before…all of this in front of the kids.
You can read the Huffington Post article here. Perhaps the most distressing part of all of this is that the adults knew the children did not have the capability to tell an adult what was going on.
Perhaps if there were video cameras in each classroom scenes like this would not be played out. They would be for the protection of both the teachers and the students. Please answer this question in the comments section below. Do you believe video cameras should be mandatory in school classrooms?
