Outraged Parents Say Son’s Teacher Made Him Lick Desk Clean for Drawing On It

Parents of a Troy, New York elementary student were outraged to learn that their son’s teacher forced him to clean a desk with his tongue as punishment for drawing on it.

George and Latonia Spencer say their son licked the desk until he began to gag, at which point he was ordered to get paper towels and clean off the rest.

The Spencers were able to get their son removed from the classroom. But they say  the teacher has since tried to turn his friends against him, and that school administration has not done enough to remedy the situation.
