my question is why are there mentally challenged in public schools to begin with? if the parents cant take it upon them selves to send the child to a special private school. They should be locked up and their child put up for adoption. This way more wealthy people who all seek children can adopt the child and give it a better life then what these neglectful parents are doing to destroy this childs life.

Since I'm in school getting my bachelor's degree right now to be a high school teacher I thought I should chime in. First off, special ed students are placed in regular rooms as forms of inclusion. Sometimes it's what the parents want, sometimes it's what the school recommends, etc. Not all special needs students need to be locked in a room all day. Secondly, the teacher is an idiot. If I ever found out an adult put their hands on my 13 year old CHILD, then I'd be pretty pissed off. Let's all put the child's age into context. He probably just barely hit puberty. You can't expect a young mind to make mature choices all the time. He's a KID for crying out loud. The parents should definitely give a firm ass whoopin at home, but at school that was handled improperly. I hope the teacher gets her ass kicked.
edit - To all the people saying he deserved it, I hope you remember the things you did and said at 13 years old.
