AGs Office Investigates Teacher Bullying

July 11th, 2008 by flanews

The Florida Attorney Generals office is investigating how children with learning disorders are treated in public schools. The investigation began in May after a St. Lucie teacher asked her students to vote on whether or not a 5 year-old autistic boy should stay in the classroom. The kid was voted out of the class. The teacher didnt know the boy was autistic at the time. Attorney General spokeswoman Sandi Copes said since the investigation started theyve received more complaints.

Weve received several complaints about the situation, not just the situation in St. Lucie County but from other parents who believe that their children may have been treated improperly so our office is conducting a through review of the entire situation, said Copes.

The Family of the autistic boy has filed a lawsuit against the St. Lucie County School District.
