Please Read. Very Important.

Wendy Portillo, a Florida Kindergarten teacher, somehow thought it would be a good idea to invite her students, one by one, to tell one of their 5-year old classmates why they didn't like him. "A.B." has behavioural issues, and has been sent to the principal's office on occassion. After one such visit, Ms. Portillo held a vote on whether the students wanted to keep A.B. in their class. A.B. is in the process of being tested for Asperger's Syndrome, a form of Autism Spectrum Disorder. Whether this child has a disability or not, NO CHILD should be humiliated in such a fashion. If you think that this teacher deserves to be fired for such blatantly unprofessional and discriminatory behaviour, please sign this petition!
