By now I’m sure you’ve heard of Wendy Portillo; a kindergarten teacher at Morningside Elementary School in Port St. Lucie, Florida.
She’s made international headlines lately because she chose to humiliate one of her students. Being that this is kindergarten, we’re talking 5-year olds. That makes it pretty bad wouldn’t you say?
The student had been sent to the principal’s office for bad behavior. Upon his return, Ms. Portillo (a fan of Survivor, no doubt) asked the boy to stand before the class. Then she asked each of her students to say what they didn’t like about the child. After that, she had them vote on if he should be allowed to remain in class (perhaps this was a lesson in mob rule?).
He was voted out. 14-2.
And here’s the icing on the cake.: The boy has Aspberger’s Syndrome (a type of high-functioning Autism).
It’s awful enough that she did this to a 5-year-old, but this one is developmentally disabled.
The story has been all over teh Internets for the past several days. As well as in the news media.
With that said….
I’m sure karma will bite this bitch cunt woman in the ass someday.
This is just insane.
I almost never watch TV so I’ve not seen any TV coverage of this yet, but I did find this interview (video) by Harry Smith of CBSNews with the child’s mother.
