A mum was left fuming and decided to pull her autistic son out of school after hearing the school principal "shifting blame" on her son.
Britt, from California, said her son would cry and scream every morning before going to kindergarten, telling her he didn't want to go to school, which was specifically designed for kids with special needs.
The parent called the head teacher and secretly recorded their conversation and shared it on TikTok.
She was heard asking: "Can you please explain to me why my child is terrified to go to school in kindergarten?"
The principal said she couldn't answer her question as she has not "worked with" her son and suggested there could be "multiple reasons" behind.
The worried mum continued: "Miss Wilson told me he had an IEP (individual education programme) and within the three months he was there, no one was coming to help him."
And to Britt's surprise, the principal said: "That is not true, that is not accurate. He is receiving services from Miss Noah, he also gets support from the teacher assistant in the classroom."
She went on to explain the class is now running over limits with more students that they normally have, adding: "For little guys who may have some sensory issues, I'm sure that's very difficult for him.
Britt admitted: "Yes it’s difficult for us to have to drop him off while he's screaming every morning.
"I was hoping this school would be different because it was a special needs school… but I think I figured out what my next move is."
The mum-of-two decided to pull her son out of the school and will look for another school.
Viewers sided with Britt and said the school principal's tone was "gaslighting".
"She said she didn't know your child but then suddenly knows everything," one mentioned and a second said: "As a special education teacher, this makes me so sad."
A third suggested: "Ask them for the report of IEP services. They are obligated to give you an update to the status."
