Would You Allow A Teacher To Harm Your Child?
Christopher Baker is 9 years old and has autism. His mother walked into his school, Mercer County Intermediate School in Harrodsburg, Kentucky on December 14th, to find him sitting with a bag over his head and tied shut. He was asking aloud, “Who is there?”
The school aide had a hard time untying the bag after the mother questioned them in shock. They stated they were punishing him for acting out. Once the bag was removed, he was sweaty and scared. They were not fired on the spot and they stated they have done it in the past and would resort to it again in the future. They should be court ordered to never work around children again. It makes you wonder what they are doing to their own children at home.
