A White teacher is facing the accusation of compelling a 5-year-old black pupil to wash a toilet with his bare hands.
The teacher’s name is Karla Lasiter and information has it that the incident happened recently at Crystal Hill Elementary, North Little Rock, Arkansas, United States.
The 5-year-old boy’s mother , Ashley Murry said she felt horrified when his son told her what happened at school. Also, she disclosed that she has taken her son out of the classroom and has enlisted the help of Tami Murry.
Ashley said: “It’s degrading for a child so I don’t feel like any child should have to go through this.
“They basically made him go in the toilet and get his feces and the dirty tissue out of the toilet.”
On the other hand, Tami Murry said: “You want a child to put their hand in there physically and clean out the commode- no no no no no. He’s not a janitor, he’s not a custodian, he’s not maintenance, no, not at all.
“I don’t ever want this to happen to another child again.”
Ashley also revealed that the school principal was told by the teacher that she was attempting to teach how not to “stop” up the toilet.
She said: “She got on the phone with me and she said she didn’t have an explanation, she just knew she was wrong. But she stated to the principal that she was trying to teach how not to stop up the toilet.
“She needs to be terminated because you don’t treat kids like this. He is a kid.”
Though Pulaski County Special School District told KATV they were investigating the situation, it was discovered that the teacher has been placed on administrative leave.
