Florida mom alleges son was forced to clean toilet

It's very important for all of those involved in the education system to conduct themselves according to the policies and standards set forth by the school district. Even things that may seem innocent or innocuous at the time can come back to cause problem later on. However, it's also very easy for an incident to get blown out of proportion or incorrect facts be released to the media, which can damage an educator's reputation very quickly. One story involving a teacher and a student in the voluntary pre-kindergarten program is making the news headlines in Florida.

The 4-year-old boy's mother claims that his pre-kindergarten teacher forced him to clean out a clogged toilet with his bare hands. The school district has yet to confirm the details of the allegations. It was also not clear from reports what happened prior to the alleged incident or whether there had been and other complaints involving this teacher.

According to reports, the Flagler County School District began investigating the claims as soon as they were notified of the mother's complaint. The Early Childhood Education department director made the district aware of the situation. Officials have already had one meeting with the child's mother and have relocated the teacher involved to another class pending the results of the investigation. The school had not yet released the name of the teacher.

While it may not seem like it as the school district and administration attempt to protect themselves and the school's reputation, you have rights as a teacher. If you find yourself facing allegations related to a situation at school, it's important to get legal counsel.
