Houston first grader forced to sit on the floor at school for over a month

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Houston mother says her first grader was forced to sit on the floor at school, and she says the punishment went on for more than a month before she found out about it.

The mother says her 7-year-old daughter colored on a desk.

The teacher told her her punishment was to clean the desk, miss recess and go to the principal's office. Then she got moved to the floor and told she wouldn’t get a desk back until the second grade.

"I asked her ‘why did you not tell me?’ and she said I was too scared to tell you mama because she thought what she had done was so bad she didn't deserve to have a desk,” the mother explained.

The school district says the teacher was reprimanded for her classroom management.

The girl will go to another school for the upcoming school year.
