I can see the problem the photographer faced, how to get the motorized scooter close enough to the rest of the kids on the bleachers.

Seems he set up the class on the seats and then tried to figure out how to get the scooter as close as he could.

Hey idiot, it's called you don't need to use the bleachers. Let all the other kids stand around behind him.

I can see several options without even trying. The teacher could stand behind the one child, and would have some unifying effect. They could have not used bleachers. They could have made a front standing row with him in it, and stand on each row instead of sitting. Ultimately it was a lousy job by the photographer, and that he/she didn't realize it is just a little sad.

I agree with you and here is the kicker the person it matters the most too (the boy in the wheel chair) is smiling away so obviously he didn't feel bad about it.

The hard cold fact is he is different then the other kids because of his disability; so yeah at times it will be hard to treat him as a "normal" child.

Two good/funny comments from the article:

he's lucky, the poor kids on the bleacher were born without faces

I just showed the picture to my seven year old and asked her what she thought of the it. She said "he has a really nice smile...and those kids faces look funny". That's all a small child thinks of it. Adults often blow things out of proportion.

School pictures are big money now. Lifetouch, the company that did these, charges crazy prices for even basic pics, and they have upgrades out the wazoo. the open space on the bench is the same as in front of the teacher so at the least they could have shifted the one child to the left of the teacher (as you look at the picture) and it would have been a simple inclusion, but recognition of his disability. As it is, the outsider effect is only magnified by him having to stretch over instead of sitting straight up. The photographer should have been reprimanded, and a redone setting arranged (imo).

I honestly think you are blowing it out of proportion.

What pains my heart in that picture is that child or any child for that matter has to live with a disability like that one.

What warms my heart in that picture is his smile; regardless of his situation he is still smiling.

His teacher and/or his class have made a happy environment for him. No kid smiles like that that is upset. Kids can't really fake their emotions.

Could have things been done to make him more included in the photo? Sure but does it really matter if he was still smiling.

Also to add I pork his teacher.

Dude you got 3 kids you know what it is like on picture day at school or sports. They hustle them in they hustle them out. It is crazy. Photographers don't have all day to complicate everyone's feelings.

My son's baseball picture this year has one kid laying down in the front and another refused to open his eyes. I was there when the pic was taken they did all they could do to "fix" those kids but time constraints made them just go with the flow. Actually it is a kind of funny photo.

Re: The Best and Worst Of Our Future

It was probably just an oversight on the photographer's part, I doubt he meant any harm. Regardless, he probably should have been a bit more aware of the situation and how the picture would look with the little boy off to the side like that.

I would imagine most parents wouldn't be happy if that was their kid. I know I wouldn't have liked it.

I just don't think his smile is a good indicator. From the story itself, it sounds like he has felt excluded in more than just this situation. Anyways, I do agree that his condition is far more tragic than this single picture.

Re: The Best and Worst Of Our Future

Worst of.....

This is someone who molded young minds:

The Bronx teacher accused of raping a 10-year-old student sent an appalling apology email to the girl, claiming he was too rough during the attack ó but said 'itís normal,'

Prosecutors say Anthony Criscuolo, 40, allegedly sent the email to his fifth grade student at Public School 386 on Tuesday.

The day before, on Monday of this week, he is accused of raping the girl inside his car that was parked at a Soundview school.

'I was too rough. Sorry,' he wrote to the girl, according to court papers. 'Itís normal. You may feel pain for a few days.'

The brute was held on $750,000 bond and $500,000 cash bail after he was arraigned earlier today.

He faces a barrage of charged including rape, predatory sexual assault against a child and endangering the welfare of a child.


Please let this ****er get what he deserves.

Well, honestly, I guess I am harder to please than I thought. The new photo certainly looks better in the sense that he has the care giver(s) there, but clearly if that's what the mom expected there was no way that would have been done on the school's picture day. I also wonders what happens if another parent's child looked less good in the re-take. As the rest of the kids look far more scrunched since the care giver(s) is sitting on the bleacher as well.

the new picture is at the 42 second mark if you don't want to wait after the forced commercial.

Much better. Peer pressure is a wonderful thing.
