Mom: Teacher Made My 4-Year-Old Son Unclog a Dirty Toilet With Bare Hands

A Florida teacher is under fire for allegedly forcing a four-year-old boy to unclog a dirty toilet with his bare hands.

The child's mother claimed that a pre-kindergarten teacher at Rymfire Elementary School doled out the harsh punishment after the little boy clogged the toilet during "bathroom time" by using too much toilet paper, according to reports.

"The teacher said he used too much toilet paper and made him reach his hand in the toilet and grab out the toilet paper with his bare hands," Tiffany Huffman told WKMG ClickOrlando.

"It's endangered his health," Huffman said. She told WKMG her son had cuts on his hands and that "anything could set in" in the tiny openings.

"...[H]e won't be going back into her classroom, that's for sure," she said.

An official at Rymfire Elementary School declined to comment to INSIDE EDITION.

The district told the station it will decide by Friday if the teacher should be disciplined.

Calls made by IE to the Flager County School District spokesman were not immediately returned.
