An unidentified teacher poured pencil shavings in to the mouth of 13-year-old Marquis Jay, and Jay’s mom reportedly isn’t satisfied with the school’s punishment of the teacher, reports CBS News.
As Jay reportedly leaned back in a chair with his head tilted back and mouth open, a teacher emptied a pencil sharpener full of shavings in to Jay’s mouth. Jay told CBS News, “I was sitting in class with my head tilted back and opening my mouth. [The] teacher came over and poured the pencil shavings in my mouth.”
The Arlington, Texas, eighth grader, who attends Boles Jr. High School, immediately spat out the shavings and was taken to the school nurse’s office, where he washed out his mouth. And even though the incident occurred last month, it has left a bad taste in the mouth of Jay’s mother, Deidre Brown, who now says the teacher was allowed to return to school after a suspension.

“I wanted to cry because it was like, how could she do that?” says Brown. “What kind of message is it sending to the kids? She is supposed to be the teacher – the adult.”
