I apologize for having to post these kind of stories of what appears to be be sheer
cruel and idiotic behavior but here again in the state of the squirrel governor wanting to turn away mental healthcare, yet another nut in power over kids has made news.  Let's get real justice from this demented principal of a private school which equals torture towards our most vulnerable..A down syndrome hispanic child dragged across concrete.
Investigators waiting to see if a State attorney will prosecute !!!  
Damn !  Let's just push this one to justice as there seems to be no oversight in this stupid state at all !!!!  YOU HEAR ME TALKING TO YOU SCOTT !!!!

An 11-year-old boy with Down Syndrome was pulled from his classroom by his private school principal and badly hurt, according to police and his family.

Meibol and Cesar Suarez adopted their grandson, who has Down Syndrome, after his parents were no longer able to take care of him.

They enrolled him in a school for children with learning disabilities, where they believed he would be safely taken care of.

But according to Neptune Beach Police Department in Florida, about three weeks ago the 11-year-old was harshly disciplined in class, and criminal charges could follow.

“This is my child. I have to protect my child,” said Meibol Suarez.

She’s still furious weeks after her son came home with bruises on his arm and side.

She said that as a child with Down Syndrome, he sometimes throws himself to the ground and refuses to get up.

We need the Dream Defenders in on this !  I have no doubt someone in this state of mind could just have easily shot this child....
According to police, on September 12, while at the New Leaf School for Change, the 11-year-old did just that.

But what happened next Suarez says is shocking.

“The child was defiant,” said Lt. Adam Militello with the Neptune Beach Police Department. “He was not getting up from the ground and the principal pulled him across the floor, just under 30 feet, some of it unfortunately over concrete and over two door thresholds.”

Cesar Suarez remembers picking his child up from school that day. And he couldn’t believe his eyes.

I had to read this in a Georgia newspaper as I have not heard one word in Florida.  I will look to see if it is anywhere.
Lt. Militello said this is an ongoing investigation but it will be up to the State Attorney’s Office to decide whether to file charges.
Let us hope and pray it is not Angela Corey.

New Leaf Mission Statement

​New Leaf School is an educational “field hospital” designed to retrieve and restore children alienated from success in traditional classrooms. New Leaf is an appropriate destination for any child wanting to learn to learn deeply.

Focusing on process over content, we apply strategies that teach cooperation and self-reliance. New Leaf’s educational system encourages each student to seek his or her personal best, which makes our classroom an ideal destination for most students.

New Leaf provides a fresh start for overlooked, underdeveloped, overwhelmed and underachieving students.

A so called principal ...Mcdonald is the name ...doesn't sound hispanic does it?

Yeah, I ain't going nowhere but some of we progressives down here are one helluva thorn in the compassion of conservatives side.. Principal needs to be fired and prosecuted !

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
