Michigan teacher accused of mocking autistic child

GENESEE COUNTY (WKZO) -- Newly released video shows what critics allege is a Genesee County teacher mocking a ten-year-old boy with a form of autism as he struggled for several minutes while stuck between supports of a chair.

The community of Goodrich has been debating whether any action should be taken against Nicole McVey as a result of last November's incident.  McVey called a maintenance worker, then used her cell phone to record the child's actions.

The principal at Oak Tree Elementary School has resigned and the video emailed by McVey to colleagues was obtained by the child's parents and released through their attorney.
