Unbelievably bad judgement on the part of the school and the teachers. No question! Cruel. But let’s not throw the baby out with the bath water. A part of living with ADHD is understanding that focus at just the right moment is not always a strong point and sometimes we have to be able to laugh at ourselves as a part of accepting our unique selves. Certainly a public forum which is meant to recognize strengths and future hopes is not the right place to nurture self-understanding. I would be mortified.
