Mother upset that teacher accused of putting son in box is back in classroom – WSOC TV (Caldwell County, N.C.)
Joy Amatuccios’ 14-year-old son, who has severe disabilities and uses a wheelchair, was placed inside a cardboard box during class at Hudson Middle School in North Carolina. She didn’t find out until another parent showed her a photo several weeks later. The teacher, who was suspended by the school district for 13 days, has now been transferred to West Caldwell High School. But Amatuccios and other parents have started a petition online to have the teacher removed from the school district.
