Teacher accused of putting boy with autism in trash can

Georgia – A veteran Cobb County special education teacher is accused of putting a second-grader with autism in a trash, saying his behavior was similar to Oscar the Grouch on Sesame Street, according school system police.

Mary Katherine Pursley, a teacher at Mt. Bethel Elementary on Johnson Ferry Road, was attempting to calm the child during an after-school program Thursday afternoon, witnesses told police.

“The accused told the victim, ‘If he had trashy behavior like Oscar, he’d go to the trash can’.”

Pursley then allegedly picked up the child by his legs, held him upside down and put him head-first into a trash can, according to police. More
