Since 1998, Maxwell Elementary in Denver has invited parents and families to enjoy special events and performances put on by its students.
According to Maxwell’s website, “students engage in the learning process in a challenging, supportive, fun and positive environment.” But when the mother of one child attending Maxwell arrived at the school recently, she never expected to witness the event of her own child in handcuffs.
The 8-year-old boy was learning a tough life lesson which was neither fun nor positive.
The mother, Raiko, found her son encircled by Denver Public Schools security officers and Denver Police officers after he had reportedly had an outburst while riding the bus home from school.
