Good for her...This is what has been missing from school since all this PC shit started Teacher dumped autistic student in a trash can after comparing him to Oscar the Grouch: cops (VIDEO) BY Jason Silverstein NEW YORK DAILY NEWS Published: Thursday, May 7, 2015, 5:33 AM Updated: Thursday, May 7, 2015, 6:03 AM A special education educator in Georgia allegedly stuffed a second grader with autism into a garbage can, claiming he acted like the trash-dwelling “Sesame Street” character Oscar the Grouch, police said. Mary Katherine Pursley, a teacher at Mt. Bethel Elementary School in Marietta, had threatened a Sesame Street-style shaming to the supposedly unruly student on Monday, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported. Cobb County Sheriff’s Office Mary Katherine Pursley, a 21-year teacher veteran, was charged with felony cruelty to children for allegedly putting a student with autism in the trash. “The accused told the victim, ‘If he had trashy behavior like Oscar, he’d go to the trash can,’” Pursley’s arrest warrant says. She then allegedly picked up the boy by his legs and dumped him head first into a trash can, asking him, “Are you going to stop yelling now?” The boy cried and screamed for her to stop, as three of her colleagues and several special needs students watched the trash thrashing.
