Wow.  Just wow.  I am a kindergarten teacher and I would NEVER send a letter like that--not to any parent.

This can't be real. The teacher obviously has no knowledge or experience of autism.

Well, I'd have him follow the rules and help him write his numbers. What are you looking for?

I'm also assuming either this is a troll, or he goes to a private school since public schools don't spank.

Where does your child go to school (public / private)? I didn't even know paddling still existed.

I would freak out.  Is this a public school (I realize some still allow parents to opt in to paddling)?  If it is a public school, was an IEP requested?
