Teacher Posted 7-Year Old Student With Jolly Ranchers In Her Hair [Video]
Lucinda Williams, claims her 7-year-old daughter, Ukailya Lofton begged her to tie Jolly Ranchers onto the ends of her braids for picture day at school after she saw the style in a magazine.
The child’s computer teacher took a picture of the hairdo because she claimed her boyfriend wouldn’t believe it.
She then posted the pics on her Facebook page with the caption: ‘Right! This is for picture day.’
Negative comments were posted and the news got back to Lucinda.
Ukailya responded in an interview, “My mama told me [the teacher] put it on Facebook and then I felt sad.”
Williams received an apology but wants to take it further to get the teacher suspended. She remarked, “What bothers me is that she still hasn’t apologized to my baby. No child should have to go to school to be bullied by their teacher.”
Chicago Public Schools said the teacher showed poor judgement posting photos of the student and she agreed.
They are now investigating to see if any policies were violated but Lucinda is speaking to her lawyers and is readying a lawsuit against the school system.
Who is more at fault here? The teacher for posting the pics or the mother for sending her child to school with candy in her hair?
