HOUSTON, Tx. – A teacher has been reprimanded and concerned parents are demanding answers after a controversial punishment came to light.
CBS station KHOU reports after an incident where a first grade girl was punished for drawing on her desk, the girl was reportedly told that she wouldn’t get her desk back until 2nd grade.
She sat on the floor for more than four weeks until she finally told her parents.
“She lost her recess, she went to the principal’s office and then she had to wash the desk and that was it,” the first grader’s mother told KHOU. “I was never told that her desk was removed.”
“I asked her why did you not tell me and she said I was too scared to tell you mama,” the mom told KHOU. “She thought what she had done was so bad she didn’t deserve to have a desk.”
