Parents of first graders at Batesburg-Leesville Primary School (South Carolina) are outraged over a teacher who picked students in her class to rub her feet. The incident came out after one of the teacher’s student told her grandmother that she didn’t want to give any more foot rubs.
“She admitted to the children rubbing her feet,” said Brenda Norris. “Just the thought of it…. They immediately sent her home, but she’s back there today.”
Norris is far from satisfied after her 6-year-old granddaughter, who is in first grade, came home from Batesburg-Leesville Primary School last Wednesday to say she was “tired of rubbing her teacher’s feet.”
“‘Does she take off her socks and shoes?'” Norris recounted asking. “‘Grandma, she wears flip-flops.'”
Norris refused to name the teacher but said she would select students to massage her feet during class time. “My granddaughter has nightmares, she cries,” said Norris. “She said, ‘I have three wishes, Grandma. One of them was not to go to school today.'”
Outraged, Norris took to Facebook and found at least half a dozen parents who said this also happened to their kids. The district says the situation has been handled. “I don’t trust the system at all now,” said Norris. “I can’t trust the system. I’m afraid for her to go to school.”
Lexington County School District Three is investigating the incidence. The school claims that the incidence was resolved and necessary actions were taken. But parents want the teacher to be fired!
