A White teacher has been accused of forcing a 5-year-old black child to wash a clogged toilet with his bare hands.
It was gathered that the incident occurred on Friday March 5 at Crystal Hill Elementary, North Little Rock in US state of Arkansas.
The white teacher, identified as Karla Lasiter reportedly told the black child to clean out the toilet with his hands because he had “used too much toilet paper.”
Mother of the 5-year-old boy, Ashley Murry said she was horrified when he told her what happened at school. She also disclosed that she has pulled her son out of the classroom and enlisted the help of her mother Tami Murry.
“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.”
While Pulaski County Special School District told KATV they are actively investigating the situation, it was also learnt that the teacher has been placed on administrative leave.
