Back in 1984 (the year not the book) a movie called "Teachers" came out that reflects the modern world of schools. The only exception is that Herbert Gower isn't out of the norm for the teaching staff, but is more the status quo for them instead (just without the students learning anything)

Disgusting, any idiot teacher who suggested this needs sacking (sorry to disagree with you on this one). Of course I am bias my son is Autistic, I know excactly where the parents are coming from, my son can not always read a situation properly, that is part of being autistic, if this child had been attending the school previously and the school were fully aware, this is nothing more than bullying by an immature teacher. I also understand how the child would feel proud of his achievement, again its a trait of autism to misread situations, the child would have felt it was his best day ever all while being mocked from 'adults' who knew better

Just a thought but what if, to the other kids in his class, he was actually annoying?

What made the kid annoying? Actions/behaviour ? Noises? Lack of noises? Should the kids be brain washed to not consider the kid annoying or should they just be allowed to be kids?


Are you people serious?

So if the kids think that autism is annoying, then the teacher is obligated to give an award mocking the kid with autism?

Unbelievable

So I guess if the kids think one kid is ugly, the teacher must give an ugliest kid award to that kid, right?



It would be of bad taste, sure.
But remember, life does not care if you are offended or not.

Make them strong now, you are not going to be there forever to protect them from the real world.


Yeah, make autism better, laugh at them...

smh

an 11-year-old autistic boy's special education teacher gave him an award for "most annoying male" in his class, according to WLS-TV.

The question I have is is there an award for "most annoying Female" , in the name of equality of course.
If this is a regular thing how come no one has complained until now , seems the kid was happy to get awarded and only his parents took offence ... perhaps he earned it.

Because he's autistic does that mean he should be wrapped in cotton wool ?

Question,

Did he try to eat the certificate.....

It feels like some context is missing in this story. Did this occur in a school/facility for people with mental handicaps? Did all the others get silly awards too? Could the student in question see the funny side of it themselves? Parental outrage is not necessarily the best thing to base a news article on, imho.

One could consider this bullying. Do it in front of his parents. Someone needs to lose their job. Dad should of took the award and shoved it up the teachers arse.

So, being autistic and all... would it be possible that the kid does not understand he is annoying?
Your answer does not invalidate the premise in the post.


Of course his autism, being non verbal rocking back and forth could all very well be annoying, and there is a very good chance he doesn’t understand that concept as his father says

So he should be mocked for that by the teacher?

Again, please explain why we shouldn’t punch babies in the face if they bite us.

Or are you being pc and treating the baby differently?


I am not completely sure the teacher is actually making fun of the kid.
Your example is somewhat disingenuous, it is not completely comparable.

I have to go to sleep, tomorrow I will give this issue a more thorough analysis and continue this conversation.
Gnt.


Why is my example not applicable?

You mean there are times when it’s ok to not treat babies or children the same as adults?

Yeah I agree, like a teacher mocking a kid with autism

Wow

So again, I guess you would have no problem if the teacher gave a kid who was molested a biggest slur award

Perhaps the kid earned it, we don’t want to wrap them in wool, right?

I don’t think so

Nice to see someone like you who is always so fragile about the right wing hurting your feelings make fun of an autistic kid though

Of course I don’t mind that at all

You demonstrate routinely the inability to keep up with anyone on ats, so you gotta have someone you can mock and feel good about

Great job!

The article answers two of these questions

One the father says the kid had no clue what the meaning of the award was he just liked it because it was shiny

Two it says the other kids all got positive awards

Yes we know

It’s not enough that you post threads smearing all trump supporters then whine when people mock you back

Now you even say anyone who mocks you for mocking and autistic kid is being a snow flake

I'll have to agree with MR Spock... the title is just hilarious.

Obviously it's of bad taste... but if the kid is actually annoying, why should they be afraid of saying the truth?
Life is hard, there will always be somebody that is going to get the short end of the stick.

PC culture is a slippery slope, make one exception and they take a mile.
Liberty above all.


So we should also be okay with awards for:

Fattest Student

Ugliest Student

Most Crippled Student

Most Sexually Abused Student

Student with the Most Dead Parents

Most Terminally Ill Student

Any problems with any of these? I mean, we need to avoid slippery slopes right?

You guess wrong but you are welcome to continue your righteous indignation without knowing all of the facts.

The kid was happy with his award but his parents weren't , I wonder who was awarded the most annoying female and why no fuss from her parents ?
