Last year, a Milwaukee teacher cut a braid off of 1st grader Lamya Cammon because she was frustrated with the child for playing in her hair inadvertently. How shameful it must have been for this little girl to have been humiliated in front of the entire class! According to the reports, the teacher and the school apologized but the teacher remained at the school. The little girl was moved to a different class.
The teacher was approached by the mother and the school went through the “disciplinary process” to no avail. The police referred the case to the District Attorney who chose not to pursue criminal charges. The Police ultimately charged the teacher with disorderly conduct and gave her a $175 ticket.
