California teacher who comforted autistic student is put on leave

Imagine that you are a special education teacher working for a school district here California. An autistic student approaches you one day, visibly upset. They ask for a hug. Knowing that many autistic children respond better to touch than words, you oblige and give the student a hug.

Study questions frequency rate of special education referrals

Our children, no matter if they have a disability or not, deserve to have access to the best education possible. It's a belief we not only hold to be true but it's something all of our Santa Cruz readers hold in their hearts as well. But it's when we hear stories like the one below that we start to question if this is a belief the state holds true above all else as well.
