A Gastonia mother says her son was suspended for calling a teacher "cute.”Go read the whole thing--the district spokespeople don't appear to add any "missing" information to what's mentioned above.
Chiquita Lockett said her 9-year-old son, Emanyea, spent the last two days at home.
Lockett said the principal of Brookside Elementary called her Wednesday to say the incident was a form of “sexual harassment.”
Emanyea told Eyewitness News a substitute teacher overheard him tell another student a teacher was cute.
Then he was suspended.
Good job, PC police. You've now gotten a child suspended from school for telling someone that someone else is "cute". You must be so proud.
Hat tip to Hot Air.
Update, 10/8/11: The principal has been canned. Seems like a bit of overkill to me, but that's the decision that was made.
