Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Nypost.com: “Seattle school accused of putting special needs 2nd grader in ‘cage’”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

A Seattle school has been slapped with a discrimination lawsuit for allegedly putting a black special-needs second grader in a padlocked schoolyard cage.

View Ridge Elementary School in 2019 kept the then-8-year-old student in a fenced-in space outdoors for hours at a time, leaving him to lunch on the ground alone without a seat or table, the suit alleges.

“The doors to the caged area were secured from the exterior with a padlock chain at the direction of Principal (Ed) Roos,” the lawsuit says.
