Brickbat: How Annoying


The Gary (Indiana) Community School Corp. has placed the principal of Bailly Preparatory Academy, Carlita Royal, on paid leave and taken the first steps to fire three teachers. The moves come after a teacher gave a fifth-grade student with autism an award for "Most Annoying Male" at the school's year-end awards ceremony in front of other students and parents. The school district is refusing to identify the three teachers.
