News Brief – Albuquerque, New Mexico

After three weeks administrative leave, one unpaid and a letter of reprimand, a teacher’s aid has returned to work. The incident occurred last month at Rio Grande High School in Albuquerque, according to KOB-TV

The station reported that a 10th-grade student who has autism and uses a wheelchair was meowing like a cat while on a field trip with his special education class. The aide reportedly told the boy that if he didn’t stop, she’d placed tape over his mouth.

Monica Armenta, executive director of the district’s communications department, said of the aide’s actions,

“We are just as disturbed by it as anyone else. “It isn’t acceptable, and it isn’t tolerated.”
