What is wrong with some people???

A friend of mine showed me this and I was really peeved when I saw this... How could anyone do this to a child a 5 year old at that who is just in Kindergarten!!

Wendy Portillo, a Florida Kindergarten teacher, somehow thought it would be a good idea to invite her students, one by one, to tell one of their 5-year old classmates why they didn't like him. "A.B." has behavioural issues, and has been sent to the principal's office on occassion. After one such visit, Ms. Portillo held a vote on whether the students wanted to keep A.B. in their class. A.B. is in the process of being tested for Asperger's Syndrome, a form of Autism Spectrum Disorder. Whether this child has a disability or not, NO CHILD should be humiliated in such a fashion. If you think that this teacher deserves to be fired for such blatantly unprofessional and discriminatory behaviour, please sign this petition!

I heard about this story from a friend of mine, and I could NOT read about it cause I know how mad I would get. I want to slap that teacher in the face, and have her stand in front of a group of adults, and have them all tell her bad things about herself.

But I would never do that, cause I can't hurt people that way.
