Isn’t This Banned As Torture?
If denying bodily functions, or using them as humiliation, is considered torture, then this teacher has some answering to do:
Orange County Public Schools is investigating claims that a student was forced to use a lunchbox as a toilet in front of his class at Meadowbrook Middle School.
The teacher will not be coming to school. She will be relieved of her duty with pay as the school district investigates, officials said.
“If you gotta go, you gotta go,” student Quonterious Thomas told Eyewitness News in an interview Monday.
Thomas, 13, says his language arts teacher, Jameeka Chambers, gave him two options when he had to go to the bathroom at Meadowbrook Middle School in Orange County. She said he could wait until the end of class or use her lunchbox in the back of the classroom.
The sixth grader said he used her lunchbox.
“If I had waited any longer, I would have peed on myself and that would have been even more embarrassing,” Thomas said, adding that his entire class of 19 students and his teacher watched.
(All emphasis added.)
Sure, the mother has questions, like “how could this happen?”, but I’d like to know how this teacher’s apparently unstable perception of reality went unnoticed by her mentors and bosses.
This is her first year on the job and her record is clean.
No, her record is nil. “One ice patch doth not a winter make,” and less than one year on the job does not make a clean record.
