CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - “Sunny Side Up” is a daily morning talk show that airs on CBS-19 News featuring Wake Up Cleveland’s Neeha Curtis and Julian Glover.

On Wednesday’s edition of “Sunny Side Up," Neeha and Julian will be discussing an Indiana teacher in hot water for mockingly giving an autistic fifth grader a trophy recognizing him as the “most annoying male.”

According to the child’s father, Rick Castejon, the award was given to his 11-year-old son at a school luncheon recently. Parents reportedly “fell silent" as the trophy was presented to the boy.

“We were blindsided. We just weren’t expecting it,” said Castejon, “As a principal or teacher, you should never let this happen to any student.”

The teacher is facing a two-week suspension and possible dismissal.

That brings us to the QOTD: What do you think should happen?
