(WTXL) — A mother in Washington had a horrifying experience when she found out her son with special needs had his desk moved into the bathroom by a teacher.

Danielle Goodwyn posted a picture on her Facebook page of her son's desk inside the school bathroom. She said the teacher’s solution for finding a quiet place for him to study was to put him and his desk in a bathroom crowded between the toilet and the sink.

She wrote that when she asked his teacher if he could study in the library, she said no, saying the bathroom was fine because they “don’t use it as a bathroom.”

“My son was humiliated, embarrassed, and disgusted at this inhumane suggestion that he work in a bathroom,” posted Goodwyn.

She said she decided to take her son home that day and added that he wouldn’t be returning to the school again.

Goodwyn also added that when her son got home, he was throwing up from the anxiety.
