She said what?!
A elementary school teacher is in some hot water for a comment she made on a social media website that was obviously about one of her students - an eight year-old.
Here's what the teacher said on Facebook:
“I'm fairly convinced that one of my students may be the evolutionary link between orangutans and humans.”
We're SHOCKED that a teacher would not only say something as terrible as this, but on such a public and permanent place!
Apparently the school principal felt similarly as they immediately responded with a comment, "What the hell is this?"
The post was subsequently deleted, but the damage had already been done.
Once the mom Lisa Wade found out about the comment, she hired a lawyer to sue the teacher for the comments.
Here's what the mother said:
"I'm disgusted with how they talked about my child, I send my child to school, trusting them to teach him, not to talk about him."
The principal says the school has taken care of the problem, but would not provide specifics on what that actually meant.
The mother wants justice, and we could not agree with her more!
