Wendy Portillo, a teacher at Morningside Elementary in Port St. Lucie, Florida, let her kindergarten students say what they did not like about 5-year-old Alex Barton—–after which the students voted him out of the class. Alex is in the process of being diagnosed with Asperger’s syndrome and has had “disciplinary issues” at school due to his disability, TC Palm.com reports. His mother, Melissa Barton, is considering legal action. Ballastexistenz comments on the “Survivor” mentality apparently at work in that Florida classroom and the exclusion of the disabled, and Asperger Square 8 posts about how you can contact the St. Lucie School Board (this is the email) and also Marcia Cully, the principal of Morningside Elementary.
