A 3-year-old boy was left behind by his class and his teachers while on a school field trip last week and his mother was notified days after the incident took place. Karter Williams, a 3-year-old student in the Houston Independent School District (HISD) Head Start program at Thompson Elementary in Houston, Texas, was on a field trip with his class to the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo last Friday when he became separated from his classmates and teachers. It is unclear how long Karter was wandering around for on his own.

Comments:

I think someone needs to find a new profession. However, knowing that this is a public school, IF the teacher gets disciplined at all, it will be nothing more than a slap on the wrist.

HISD is a taxpayer funded day care center. 3 years old? Cradle to grave, for sure.

If the mom went home without her baby the government would seize her children and place them in foster homes. But when the government ,or an extension of it in this case, leaves a three year old behind they will continue to be left in charge of children. They had one job and blew it.

HISD are a bunch of idiots to take 3 year olds to the rodeo! That should be a family activity, or at least wait until they are old enough to actually remember the trip.

I don't understand this. Was the teacher the only one in charge of keeping track of the kids? With 3-year olds, there should be enough chaperones to have a person in charge of two or three kids, at the most. I used to be the designated chaperone for ONE particularly difficult 6 year old at my son's school. I never let him out of my sight.

Exactly what should be expected when total child care it left to minimum wage workers and "parental responsibility" is just complaining.

HISD states that he was found within minutes and reunited with his school. If that were true, he would have been reunited with his classmates and put on the correct bus. He was not found within minutes. The teachers' union will protect the teacher. Did no one even do a head count on the bus? Thank goodness a good samaritan took the time to notice the child and get him to rodeo authorities.

3 year olds... in school... and on a field trip? Herding one 3 year old is an unenviable task much less a dozen + of the little balls of energy and distraction. Whoever thought this was a hood idea needs to be looking for a new job.

The mother is in tears but the impish kid looks like he had the time of his life. I would say he ditched the boring group on purpose to find adventures of his own. The teachers should be canned.

If Karter was like my younger son, his curiosity lead him to wander off and continue to wander. I once took a pack of 8 year old Cub Scouts to visit an aircraft carrier. The other mother who was supposed to go couldn’t make it at the last minute. Those little boys hit that deck and scattered like mercury out of a dropped thermometer. Open bays everywhere and boys running hither and yon. We all survived. They, better than I. I was a wreck. Karter obviously survived, the cluckers notwithstanding.

Read the article. He was joined up with another group from the same school and transported back to school. “Missing” for minutes. His mother looks and sounds like a real piece of work. Those who read the article will find that this 3 year old was part of the school’s Head Start Program, which starts kids at age 3. Already reading at 3, I’d have loved something like that...

Whoa! Look at what Head Start is all about. For children from impoverished families. Then have a look at Mrs. Williams and their home. Head Start, a federal program that supports early learning and development for nearly 1 million children in poverty and their families, is the nation's largest preschool program. ... Most families today need full-day childcare, but roughly half of Head Start programs offered only part-day services in 2016. So it is not educational. It is child care. We support it.

Actually, #17, my wife was similar, went a couple of days to kindergarten before 1st grade. She remembers hating it because all the other kids were so far behind her and she was "treated like a baby", stopped going after a few days, did better at home. I had a similar situation, about three days at 'kindergarten' then out, bored to tears, wanted to be home reading my books and the newspaper.

President Trump, moving with haste to slow the spread of the coronavirus, is preparing a plan to mobilize the National Guard to help enforce a two-week quarantine of the public if his tough-love efforts so far fail. The unprecedented action would require everyone to “stay at home,” according to a source knowledgeable of the evolving plan. The effort, which is still being mulled and wouldn’t be announced until early next week if needed, would urge that all businesses, except grocery stores and pharmacies, be closed.

The owner of a 7-Eleven in New Jersey looking to make a few bucks on the coronavirus outbreak sold a homemade sanitizing spray that burned four children, authorities said. Manisha Bharade, 47, was issued a summons on charges of endangering the welfare of children and deceptive business practices for mixing foaming sanitizer not intended for resale with water and packaging the mixture in bottles sold in her River Vale store, state and local authorities announced Tuesday. “Let me be perfectly clear: If you try to take advantage of our residents during a public health emergency, we will hold you accountable,” New Jersey Attorney General Gurbir Grewal said.

St. Paul — Police arrested a woman on Monday, March 9, after she allegedly dragged her 11-year-old son from his bunkbed and threw him off the balcony of their fourth-floor St. Paul apartment, leaving him seriously injured. Investigators interviewed the 33-year-old mother on Monday, and “she admitted to doing it, but she did not tell them why,” said Steve Linders, a St. Paul police spokesman. The investigation remains underway. A person in an apartment building in the St. Anthony Park neighborhood called 911 about 8:40 a.m. and reported an attempted suicide.

Dr Anthony Fauci has been caught smirking at President Donald Trump during a coronavirus press conference, further fueling rumors of tension between the pair. The incident occurred Friday afternoon, while the Commander-in-chief was giving the media an update on the COVID-19 outbreak flanked by members of the White House Coronavirus Task Force team, which includes Dr Fauci. The highly-respected immunologist looked to roll his eyes and suppress laughter as Trump lashed out at the State Department, describing them as the 'Deep State department'. Dr Fauci then placed his hand over his face, in what many described as a 'face palm' reaction to Trump's inflammatory remarks.

Fauci has worked for the National Institutes of Health (NIH) his entire professional life. In the past, for more than two decades starting in the mid-1980s, he was the medical establishment’s face of HIV-AIDS – omnipresent on television when AIDS was hot and ever present at international AIDS conferences well into the 21st century. Always, he was an enthusiastic advocate of throwing more federal money at the problem of AIDS. He's widely praised in the press.

Homeowners who have lost income or their jobs because of the coronavirus outbreak are getting some relief. Depending on their situation, they should be eligible to have their mortgage payments reduced or suspended for up to 12 months. Federal regulators, through the mortgage giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, are ordering lenders to offer homeowners flexibility. The move covers about half of all home loans in the U.S. — those guaranteed by Fannie and Freddie. But regulators expect that the entire mortgage industry will quickly adopt a similar policy. Under the plan, people who have suffered a loss of income can qualify

The pressure only increased after Trump’s Friday briefing.The Atlantic’s James Fallows believes the attention-starved Trump is turning the press conferences into “virtual campaign” rallies and Trump would actually lose interest in showing up if the media did not cover the briefings live.“Also, as a practical matter, if the briefings were no longer covered live, Trump would lose interest in attending himself,” Fallows argues.
