Grandma warns kindergartners suspended for simulating sex at school
MIKWAUKEE, Wis. (KSWB) - A half-dozen kindergarten students were suspended for simulating sex while at school in Wisconsin, FOX6 reported.
A grandmother of one of the students told FOX6 the inappropriate behavior has been going on since preschool and the teacher allegedly did not know.
"I couldn't believe some of the things in that report. It was shocking," the grandmother said.
Simulated sex acts and inappropriate touching allegedly occurred in the open coat room adjacent to the students' learning space. The documents show students said they would "pretend that they are putting their Legos away, and sneak to engage in the activity."
"First they used words like 'having sex' and things like that," the grandmother said. One student told officials it happened every day. Other students said they would watch them do it.
The acts were first reported to school administrators two weeks ago, documents show.
She said her grandson was 5-years-old, he was pressured into sex acts by a girl during school hours, FOX6 reported.
"According to the report, this has been going on since 4-K. He's now in kindergarten," the grandmother said. "Where was the teacher?"
Six students were involved and have been suspended for a month, according to the grandmother. She says the remaining dozen or so students in the class met with counselors to discuss what happened.
"The reason I decided to do the interview is so it doesn`t happen again. No child will be kicked out of school for something that the staff or the administration -- they should be on top of things like this," the grandmother said.
A spokeswoman for the Racine Unified School District declined to comment on camera -- telling FOX6 News over the phone that administrators are aware of the incident and are investigating. She says an employee relations investigation is also underway involving the students' teacher.
