Camden Davis is the name of the 12-year-old kid, who attended the Hope Academy in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. The academy specializes in treating kids with special needs and as they mention in their website, they promote “inclusion, encouragement, positive relationships and recognition of student accomplishment.” Not only they didn’t do that in Camden’s case, but they even made fun of him and his difficulty in following the rest of the class. His mom noticed that he was in distress after coming from school and was certain that something was wrong. That’s why she decided to put a recording device in his backpack. The outcome was way more surprising that anyone could expect.
