A New Jersey father took drastic measures because he believed teachers were bullying his autistic son.
The men sent his son to school with a tape recorder, which captured a teacher talking in front of children about how drunk she got the night before.
Im doing the happy dance. Im so very happy, one of the teachers can be heard saying. You know why?...I had a bottle of wine with my girlfriend last night I forgot to eat dinner.
The father took the audio to his childs school district, where officials fired one of the teachers involved after hearing the tape.
He also made a YouTube video and Facebook page exposing the outrageous behavior. On the video, he says school districts should weed out teachers who shouldnt be in a classroom.
I really hope this starts a conversation, and I hope people out there who are, who do have the power, can take a breath and say, If this can happen here, then it can happen in every state in every town. And as long as we keep this quiet, it will continue to happen, he said.
The boy was transferred to another school, where he is reportedly doing much better.

Thank you so much for what you do - I'm sure you are a blessing to many.
We chose to home-school our autistic daughter - partly because teachers like you seem to be few and far between.
They had first names????
“he says school districts should weed out teachers who shouldnt be in a classroom. “
Conflicts with the NEA agenda of more teachers are better than less.
Good for you! And Thank You.
I’ve been following this news since it broke. The father was on NJ101.5 this evening. He sounded pretty reasonable which is good.
I never felt my son was suffering at school.
Though there was a case where a parent was accusing my then 9 year old son of agitating her son. They shared the bus to school. Like this dad, I put a recorder in his backpack and had evidence that any agitating was initiated by her son.
It’s very difficult since he he can’t tell us what’s happening at school or even just how he’s feeling. We have to intuit his well being. I still worry about the future.
