Alex Barton--an autistic child--was voted out of his kindergarten class by his classmates by a 14 to 2 margin. Prior to the vote, the teacher had the kids discuss what they didn't like about Alex. Mom is obviously pissed off and speaking of legal action, but the question begs: if he was voted nay by fourteen of the students, maybe Alex is a really unpleasant brat?.
A Port St. Lucie, Fla., mother is outraged and considering legal action after her son's kindergarten teacher led his classmates to vote him out of class.
Melissa Barton says Morningside Elementary teacher Wendy Portillo had her son's classmates say what they didn't like about 5-year-old Alex. She says the teacher then had the students vote, and voted Alex, who is being evaluated for Asperger's syndrome -- an autism spectrum disorder -- out of the class by a 14-2 margin.
