‘Unacceptable’: Teacher Suspended After Allegedly Pouring Pencil Shavings Into Student’s Mouth
13-year-old Marquis Jay was sitting in his 8th grade class at Boles Jr. High School in Arlington, Texas when he says a teacher punished him by pouring pencil shavings into his mouth.
Jay explained that he was slouching and leaning with his head back and mouth open when the teacher tossed in the wooden shavings, but says that’s hardly a sufficient justification.
His mother, Deidre Brown, added for CBS 11: “I wanted to cry because it was like how could she do that…What kind of message is it sending to the kids? She is supposed to be the teacher – the adult.”
Jay says the woman wasn’t even his regular teacher, but someone who swung by to help ease the burden in their classroom.
According to CBS 11, the school’s director of communications said:
“This incident is unacceptable and was immediately and fully investigated by the AISD when it occurred almost a month ago. The district took appropriate disciplinary action…The school has been in constant communication with the student’s mother about this incident and other matters. At no time has mom expressed any concerns about the manner in which this situation was handled to the school or the district.” [Emphasis added]
But according to a Friday report, the mom doesn’t quite agree. The teacher was reportedly suspended and asked to apologize, but Brown would’ve preferred to see her fired.
“I don’t even think she should be teaching if she can’t have the patience to not know that’s not something she is not supposed to do,” Brown concluded.
