It’s difficult to believe but there are some school districts who use archaic modes of punishment for children, including shame.
While these people are entrusted with teaching and keeping our children safe, they also allow policies that can leave our children with mental scars.
Lincoln Elementary School in Grants Pass, Oregon used to make their students sit behind a piece of cardboard when they were late for school. They would isolate the student away from the rest of the students in shame.
A little boy named Hunter Cmelo was subjected to this punishment when his family was having car trouble.
Something that was completely out of the little boy’s control.
His grandmother, Laura Hoover, was completely outraged by this. She posted photos of her grandson during his punishment in a very angry Facebook post.
“This is my grandson, Hunter. He’s a little first grader. His momma’s car sometimes doesn’t like to start right up. Sometimes he’s a couple minutes late to school. Yesterday, he was 1 minute late and this is what his momma discovered they do to punish him! They have done this to him 6 times for something that is out of this baby’s control!” Laura Hoover wrote in her post.“They make a mockery of him in front of the other students! The principal is responsible for this. His mom found him there, crying, and took him home for the day. Anyone want to help me flood this lady principal with calls telling her how inappropriate this is? This issue has been resolved. The cardboard partition will no longer be used for any detention of any kind. Thank you for your overwhelming support and outpouring of compassion.”Hunter’s mother, Nicole Garloff, said her son was crying when he went to school that day because he knew he was going to get a detention.
