Brickbat: The Most Superlative


In Virginia, Taryn Price says her son, Azavier, 11, was hurt and embarrassed when his teacher at Brookneal Elementary School presented him an award on the last day of fifth grade for the student most likely to stay in the school forever. She says the boy has autism and has been bullied in the past. In a statement, Campbell County Schools said in a statement the award was "given in good faith" and "not intended to demean or disparage the student; However, we recognize it was received in this manner. We sincerely regret any hurt this has caused the student or his family, and will take steps to prevent any incidents of this type in the future."
