What the hell?
Florida Teacher Forces Four-Year-Old To Unclog Dirty Toilet

Cincinnati News, FOX19-WXIX TV

You "discipline" a kid because he clogged the toilet? Unless he was shoving other stuff in there, there's no excuse for this. I would love to know where this teacher got her training, because that's just authoritarian bullshit to me:

FLAGER COUNTY, FL (WKMG/CNN) - A teacher's lesson turned into an investigation at Rymfire Elementary School in Palm Coast on Monday after Tiffany Huffman says her 4-year-old son was forced to stick his hands in the toilet.

"He had just got done going number one and number two, so I guess all that was in the toilet whenever he had to do that bare handed,” Huffman said.

Huffman says the pre-kindergarten teacher claimed her son has clogged the toilet before. “This time around she told him, she said, 'Gage needs to clean his own mess up this time.'"

“It's not a teachable moment. Absolutely not,” parent Lashelle Furr said. Furr is a parent at Rymfire Elementary School and says there are other ways to discipline a child and believes the teacher should be held accountable. “She needs to be reprimanded and an investigation needs to be very thorough,” Furr said.

Huffman says the teacher admitted to doing it, but claimed the toilet was clean. Regardless, she says the teacher should not be doing it in the first place.

"It's endangering his health. I realized afterwards that there was cuts on his hands but like the bacteria, anything could set in on those cuts,” Huffman said.
