"I was talking to my friend and I said "Ms. Terry was cute"... and that's it. that's all i said.
The nine-year-old, Emanyea was sent home from his school last week, for two days because school district officials say his comment was inappropriate. A substitute teacher overheard the young boy talking to his friend and reported it.
Emanyea's mother, Chiquita Lockett, said the punishment does not fit the crime. "It's not like he went up to the woman and tried to grab her or touch her in a sexual way. so why would he be suspended for two days?"
The district's code of conduct does not list inappropriate behavior, but says "disruption of school" is punishable by five days of out of school suspension.NEWS BY LOCATION | ABC30 BLOGS | DISCUSSION FORUMS
