what is it with Iowa educators???

Not long ago I linked to an article where they put an autistic child in timeout for the day. Today I read about a boy who was at football practice and his coach made him strip to his underwear because he didn't follow the rules.

You can read about it here.

I feel so sorry for that boy and I hope justice is done. That coach needs to be fired.

"in front of his teammates and some parents"

And other parents watched? These other adults (I refuse to call such persons parents) need to be held accountable for their inaction too.

This boy is only 10yo. Some adult there should have stood up for him.

Things like this really steam me up!
What is up with the other "adults"
that were in attendance?

Oh! No! Way!

I can't believe the other adults wouldn't stand up and protest the abuse of that little boy.

Well, maybe I can believe it. Must have been a higher than usual 'a$$hole concentration level' in the stands that day.

It goes without saying that, we I there, I'd have ripped the coach a new one.

This was actually in Ohio, but it's still horrible! Geez as if the humiliation by peers isn't bad enough!
