7-Year-Old Girl With Down’s Syndrome Removed From School Yearbook After Parents Complain

A 7-year-old girl with Down's Syndrome has allegedly been removed from a school yearbook after parents complained she would ruin the album.

Parents of other children said it was humiliating for their children to be seen with Masha.

Five students moved away from their class so they did not have to sit in the same class room.

Masha who is not a student at the school but the daughter of a teacher, goes to work with her mother as there is nobody to look after her at home.

Masha's mother Olga Sinayeva wrote on Facebook: 'The album is all so very pompously glossy, with all kinds of poetry about school, friendship and mutual understanding, with pages separated by parchment paper.

"The reason why children were asked to return this album is simple: Many parents can't stand the photograph of the girl, Masha, who has Down's syndrome, the daughter of the homeroom teacher, next to their children."

"Masha practically lives in this class, tries to interact, hugs everyone, she is kind and defenceless, but children shrink away from her," said Sinayeva.
