First grader forced to rub her teacher’s feet

Norris is upset after her 6-year-old granddaughter came home from Batesburg-Leesville Primary School in Lexington County, SC, last Wednesday and said that she was “tired of rubbing her teacher’s feet.”

Norris said the teacher would select students to massage her feet during class. She said, “My granddaughter has nightmares, she cries…She said, ‘I have three wishes, Grandma. One of them was not to go to school today.’”

Thoughts?

Sad, what happens in School these days...

If its not a school bully, then its nutty Teachers...

Give a lot of love and attention to your Granddaughter, and she will overcome this...

I wish you well...

Jesse

Keeping in mind this is IF true, (site states MSNBC is the source but does not provide link and I'm too lazy and grossed out to look for it):

That is disgusting. Feet are gross as it is and it's repulsive to subject some poor little kid to having to rub some big, ugly, stanky, grown up feet. Seriously, that's nasty.

IF true, teacher needs to go.

Here's a more "reliable" source. Teacher makes first graders massage her feet in class | ksdk.com

Although I don't think feet are disgusting... this teacher's sense of entitlement to "slaves" IS disgusting! Another reason to homeschool... no teacher's forcing your kids to rub their feets... well, unless it's mom who says so! LOL

My kid being forced to touch a teacher anywhere, is wrong, period. Feet or not. Hell I'd be mad if my sons teacher asked him to brush her hair.

He is 7, soon to be 8.

6 year olds do make up stories sometimes though, if true, she doesn't need to be teaching children anymore.

Actually, the mother of the little girl was on our local news today.

She wants the teacher to be punished in some way.

My understanding is that there is an investigation going on and the teacher was told to leave.

I am not sure if she is allowed back, pending investigation.

Wow. I had a third grade teacher who made me do...just that! Except she only picked me to massage her feet. Never thought I'd hear about another teacher like that.
