This Teacher Is An Idiot

How could anyone possibly think this is reasonable?
A 6-year-old kindergarten student in Missouri was forced to wrap a trash bag around herself and sit in her own diarrhea, Ozarks-based television station KY3-TV reports...

The girl was forced to sit in the mess for the 15 minutes remaining of the testing period and an additional 20 minutes, as her mother drove to school with a change of clothing, KY3 reported.

Superintendent Bob Walker told the station that district officials “regret what happened” and wishes that the school had handled it differently.

“You can’t do that to a 6-year-old,” Skidmore told the station.  “You don’t even treat a dog that way.”
I'm relieved that at least the superintendent recognized the enormous stupidity involved.

If heads don't roll over this--maybe even literally--then tar and feathers is definitely called for.

I'm glad to see someone realizes the awfulness here. I know of a similar incident in your area where nothing was done and the principal pretty much ignored it.
