FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. (WNCN) – A Fayetteville mom wants answers after she said her son was bullied by classmates, and then bullied by a teacher.
Tanya Glover says her 11-year-old son, Jonathon Glover, was in the in-school suspension (ISS) classroom at Elizabeth Cashwell Elementary. He had been sent because he confronted a bully and he says he’d had enough.
“It was just a verbal fight because he was messing with me and then I finally snapped,” Jonathon said.
Jonathon said he told the ISS teacher he didn’t want to be there, and that’s when he said the teacher snapped.
“I said I can’t keep doing my work because you’re gonna keep yelling at me, and that’s when he picked me up by the collar put me on the wall,” Jonathon said.
His mother said she immediately reported what happened to the school, the district, and police. So far, she said nothing has been done about it.
“It’s incredibly frustrating, I wanna protect my son,” she said. “He’s scared at school because this man is there, and I’m worried for other kids,” Glover said.
The school district said it’s investigating, but would not name the teacher or discuss details of the case.
