STORY TELLER: LATRELL JENNINGS - EDITED 11/9/2016 (11:04 PM CT)
A new thing just happened that has people raging (especially parents) about this. A thanksgiving play at Nutter Fort Primary School took place, and when an autistic boy's part took place waiting in line to say his line, the teacher snatched the microphone away from him before he could even say anything.
Facebook page comments full of rage, phone lines blowing up, Nutter Fort Primary School is getting it. To our understanding, no comment was yet made from them, but we're pretty sure they know about it. If you look in the trending section of Facebook and find this, click on the post comments. What do you see in the comments of that post? Pretty much everyone wanting her fired, which isn't surprising considering what happened.
How heart breaking. People say there was a name change of the teacher (don't blame her) and now they say it's Lucinda McCullough. Not sure if this is official in the court, but... well... yeah.
Amanda Riddle, the mother of the Autistic boy Caleb, has been all over Facebook about this. She was excited for the play for her boy Caleb, but then the tragedy happened.
Caleb's father also wasn't very happy. Called it "outrageous."
"I was all excited to go to Caleb's play everyone did a good job. I left in tears because one teacher grabbed the microphone from Caleb and in a mean way. My son is a little different I know this but his heart is so big and he loves everyone." says Amanda.
Here's the original video. Take a look.
"I'm sick of kids that are not considered "normal" be treated the way they are." - Amanda.
Well guess what, Amanda? I'm sick of it too. All of us at TrendNation do. And we hope you and Caleb take care of the teacher who treated him that way.
