I have a strong belief in the idea of disabled children being in the least restrictive teaching environment. I also believe that this is a child who is not safe to be outside of a specialised environment. I'll say it - he needs an institution. He needs one to one supervision. He needs to learn, yes, as much as he's capable, but this 'experiment' has been a catastrophic failure. Educate him, yes, but do so in an environment designed for children with his specific behaviour disorder/s. It's going to be safer for the other children, safer for the staff, and also, safer for him. It sounds weird, but he may actually feel safer and be less violent in an environment where he's not allowed to hurt people.
