Why are we failing as a society, a society in which a child in special education is set on fire by regular education students at his/her school?

New Port Richey Student Set On Fire

How can a middle school student, and 11 year old student, ever think that is ok? What are we missing? What in society even plants such an idea into a child's brain?

The article states that the two students who set the other child on fire have disciplary records at the school. What has been done in the past? How were those displinary issues handled? Where along the way did the two students think it would be 'entertaining' to set another child on fire, a child who may not have seen the danger in the situation?

These are all rhetorical questions, but this whole thing just makes me ill...
