A kindergarten teacher in Little Rock, Arkansas, has been placed on administrative leave after she reportedly made one of her students dig out feces in a clogged toilet.
Now the boy’s mom is calling for the teacher’s termination.
Ashley Murry said she was horrified when her son told her about what the teacher made him do.
“It’s degrading for a child, so I don’t feel like any child should have to go through this,” Murry told local NBC affiliate KARK-TV. “They basically made him go in the toilet and get his feces and the dirty tissue out of the toilet.”
Murry said after she learned of the incident she immediately pulled her son from the class at Crystal Hill Elementary School.
Although she spoke with the teacher, she said she wasn’t reassured by the explanation ― or lack of one.
“She needs to be terminated, Murry said. “She does not need to be teaching in any school district. She does not need to be around kids. Her license needs to be taken,” Murry said.
