TOOELE, Utah – The father of an autistic boy in Tooele says his son was mistreated by a teacher’s aide and is upset with the school’s response to his complaints.

Aaron Fergusson says on February 26, a teacher’s assistant pushed his 15-year-old son Ethan out of a Stansbury High School classroom for being disruptive, and he caught it on tape.

Fergusson contacted school officials about the incident, expecting them to take action, but he says the haven’t done enough.

“There’s just been a lot of errors with the school and the school is not willing to own up to it and admit it,” he said. “Or they’re not even willing to say what has been going on is really bad and we’re going to fix it.”

On the day of the incident, the Fergussons received an email from the school explaining what happened.
