Officially, the boy was suspended for “inappropriate behavior” after making “inappropriate statements;” stated a spokeswoman for the school district.
Outraged by the overly exuberant penalty for stating the teacher was cute; Lockett stated; “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 boy’s suspension came on the heels of a Massachusetts elementary school investigation of sexual harassment. A boy in that school struck another boy in the groin. That child was only seven years old and his mother states he was only trying to defend himself.
