Off-topic, but still strangely compelling...
As I read this report, provided through Slate's Hot Document series, I was struck by the almost Kafkaesque absurdity of the situation. It really is like a Stalinist show-trial: a child, apparently diagnosed with autism, is taken from a classroom under police escort for disruptive behavior, and when he returns, he is confronted with the "evidence" against him and voted out of the classroom.
The really bizarre thing is that a state-paid teacher, whose job it is to instruct students, let a student's continued participation in class be determined by what amounted to a popularity contest. This strikes me as a silly exercise - at best - designed to camouflage seemingly well-justified weariness and exasperation with the will of the students.
Now, let me say that this is based off one document and not all the sides are presented in the same manner (naturally, one person is complaining about another), but - even if there is a grain of truth in the incident - it's still a weird exercise that really has no place in any school.
Bizarre, bizarre, bizarre.
