This story makes me very sad for this little boy. :( Could it be that the teacher is just extremely uneducated about how to handle the situation...or doesn't have the tools to react in a more effective manner? Either way, as the mother of an almost 7 year old myself, this is very frustrating to read!
Mom: APS Put 1st Grader In Timeout Room All Day, Every Day
AURORA, Colo. -- How long is too long to spend in timeout?
An Aurora woman told 7NEWS that her 7-year-old son’s teacher has been putting him in a timeout room at school for most of the day and has been doing so since last October.
Raven Rainer said her son has Attention Deficit Disorder and that she knew the timeout room could be used if Debran became disruptive in class.
But Rainer said she had no idea Debran would be spending nearly his entire school day in isolation.
The boy’s grandmother said she learned that that was the case last month.
