(LEX18) — LOUISVILLE (AP) – The Kentucky mother of an autistic boy who says he was stuffed in a duffel bag for misbehaving in class has pulled her son out of school, and insists if changes aren’t made he’s not going back.
Sandra Baker said that although classes resumed Tuesday in their central Kentucky school district following the holiday break, she will home-school her 9-year-old son, Christopher.
Baker said she won’t send the fourth-grader back to Mercer County Intermediate School in Harrodsburg until the staff is better trained to deal with children with developmental disabilities. She also insists that the teacher responsible be fired.
“It’s going to have to change or he’s not going back,” she said.
