The parents of an 11-year-old autistic boy couldn't believe his eyes when a teacher gave her son the 'most annoying boy' trophy at his end-of-year party at school. The fifth-grader at Bailly Preparatory Academy in Gary, Indiana, was happy with the award without knowing its meaning. Rick Castejon, the boy's father, told ABC Chicago WLS-TV that other children received positive awards such as "the funniest" or "the one that has shown the best progress."
"When they called him, he was excited to receive the golden star because it is brilliant," added Castejon of the award, who, like his wife Estella Castejon, says he is outraged at the treatment the school has given his son. The father added that in order to avoid creating a scandal in front of other parents, she got up from the table and left but the teacher returned and told her that the boy had forgotten her trophy.
The student's mother says she returned to school the next morning demanding an apology from the teacher and the principal, but received none.
However, Dr. Peter Morikis of Gary Community School Corporation issued an informed statement that the teacher who created the award would face disciplinary action. "We do not allow this type of behavior and we will continue to put the safety and well-being of our students first," Morikis said. "We send our deepest apologies to the student affected by this, her family, and anyone else who has taken offense at this unfortunate incident."
