  1. That’s funny, I just sent this excellent interview to my brother, and headed the email “Despite all my rage, I am still just a rat in a cage” – a line from a Smashing Pumpkins song.


  2. this boy’s treatment is wrong in so many ways !

    what sort of example is the teacher setting here to the other pupils in the class/

    that it’s O.K. to humiliate and ridicule someone who is different from ourselves?

    not only is the teacher guilty of inflicting psychological pain on this boy, she is potentially setting him up to be bullied by other pupils by encouraging them to see him as an ‘animal’ – not deserving of the same respect as them

    school should be place a child is happy to spend time in – an unhappy child is not going to be in the best frame of mind to pay attention and learn much

    this woman is unfit to be a teacher and should be dismissed from her job and face police charges of assault and child abuse !
