A tragic story that I found on The Washington Post
Video showed a student with autism being dragged through school. A teacher was charged with assault.
A special-education teacher emerged from a classroom, dragging a student with autism through the hallways of an elementary school in Kentucky.
After a moment, the teacher, whom authorities later identified as Trina Abrams, stopped and asked the 9-year-old boy, “You want to walk?”
“No,” he said.
“Okay,” she responded, then the boy let out a moan as she continued to pull him by his wrists, dragging his limp body across the floor.
The child’s mother, Angel Nelson, told ABC affiliate WCHS she was “horrified” when she learned that her son, who has autism among other special needs, was allegedly dragged by a teacher through his school. Nelson said she posted surveillance footage of the October incident on Facebook last weekend because she wanted him “to have a voice.” The video has since been viewed hundreds of thousands of times, prompting widespread outrage and calls for change.
