自闭症男孩课桌竟被安排在厕所间 午睡睡在厕所地板上

  华盛顿州贝灵汉市(Bellingham)的11岁男孩卢卡斯(Lucas Goodwin)患有自闭症以及自身免疫性疾病。他的母亲丹妮尔·古德温(Danielle Goodwin)向他将要入读的Whatcom中学说明情况后,希望老师能照顾到他的特殊情况,为他安排一个安静的座位。

  可当卢卡斯跟随母亲走进新学校,准备迎接崭新的中学生活时,却发现,他的课桌竟被安排在了厕所间!

  “Sad, stressed, embarrassed,” said Lucas Goodwin。 “I was like how is this happening? How am I in the bathroom? Why?”

  “悲伤、紧张、尴尬,”卢卡斯·古德温说道。“我在想这是怎么回事?我怎么会在厕所里?这是为什么?”

  The look of disgust is clear on Lucas Goodwin’s face in the photo his mom took when they came to school on Monday to find his new quiet learning place, in a functioning bathroom。 The 11-year-old’s desk was over a toilet。

  周一,卢卡斯·古德温和妈妈来到学校,发现他新的安静的学习场所被安置在了一间功能齐全的卫生间里。这名11岁男孩的桌子被安在了马桶上面。在他妈妈为他拍摄照片中,男孩的脸上满是厌恶。

  Danielle Goodwin said the teacher also gave him a camping mat to nap on the bathroom floor。

  丹妮尔·古德温说,老师还给了他一张露营垫,让他在厕所的地板上午睡。

  “I was stunned,” said Danielle Goodwin。 “I was so shocked I just took the picture because I didn’t believe what I was seeing。”

  “我惊呆了,”丹妮尔·古德温说道。“我太震惊了,我拍了这张照片,因为我不相信我所看到的。”

  When they found the desk in the bathroom, Danielle Goodwin asked if there was another option, she said the teacher said no。

  当他们在厕所里找到那张书桌时,丹妮尔·古德温问老师是否还有其他选择,老师的回答是没有。

  卢卡斯的妈妈告诉当地电视台,由于卢卡斯所患有的自身免疫性疾病,他不能待在满是细菌的场所,那会对他的身体造成很大的影响,于是她当即将儿子带回了家。

  “My son was humiliated, embarrassed, and disgusted at this inhumane suggestion that he work in a bathroom,” she said。

  她说:“我的儿子感到羞辱、尴尬,对这种让他在厕所间学习的不人道建议感到厌恶。”

  古德温家雇佣的律师香农·麦克米尼米(Shannon McMinimee)说,卢卡斯此前从来没有遇到过类似的问题,他可以去图书馆或其他合适的安静的场所学习。

  “I can‘t believe that there was anybody that thought this was a good idea,” McMinimee told CNN。 “There’s a lot of different ways you can accommodate students with disabilities without humiliating them。”

  “我不敢相信有人认为这(在厕所学习)是一个好主意,”麦克米尼米告诉CNN。“有很多不同的方式可以在不羞辱残疾学生的情况下为他们提供帮助。”

  而贝灵汉公立学校监督人格雷格·贝克(Greg Baker)在回应此事件的声明中表示,这个厕所间是用作储藏室而非使用中的厕所。

  The idea of putting Goodwin‘s son there was “an example of staff trying to seek a solution to temporarily repurpose a room,” Baker said。

  贝克说,把古德温的儿子安置在那里的想法是“工作人员试图暂时改变房间用途、寻找解决方案的一个例子”。

  Due to limited state funding “schools often have limited space to meet students‘ instructional and social-emotional needs,” he said。

  由于州政府资金有限,“学校通常只有有限的空间来满足学生的教学和社会情感需求,”他说道。

  对此,拥有15年处理教育法相关案件从业经验的麦克米尼米表示,学校首先应该做的是向古德温一家道歉,而她已经开始了侵权索赔。
