A photo of a small child wearing a black trash bag as a poncho is making its way around the internet.

According to Breitbart, the child is part of the Chicago Public School system and is also a non-verbal epileptic.

Apparently the mother of the child found her son wearing a trash bag when she visited his classroom at Wentworth Elementary on the City’s South Side.

The teacher claims she put the bag on the child to prevent saliva from dripping onto his shirt and the child’s mother claims her son was put in a bag again the very next day.

Chicago Public Schools released a statement to WGN about the incident saying:

“We work to ensure all students are comfortable in their learning environment. This incident is inexcusable and CPS has launched an investigation. We will take all appropriate actions to ensure this issue is resolved and prevented from happening again.”
