• Connecticut math teacher Robert Wollkind is fighting for his job after he asked an overweight student if he ate his homework. Wollkind blamed the somewhat humorous yet awful comment on his Asperger’s Syndrome, which he says makes social interactions awkward for him. He also once told a student that he hated him, once again because of the Asperger’s. While he might be fired because of his latest zinger, over 1,000 parents who live in the school district have signed a petition supporting him. Ha. Did he eat his homework. That’s coldblooded, man.
