Two parents are speaking out against their son’s school after a teacher reportedly made the fifth-grader lick a desk clean.

George and LaTonia Spencer of Troy, N.Y., claim that after their son was caught doodling on his desk in February, he was forced to lick off the marks. They have turned to the media, as they feel the school’s response to the incident was inadequate, according to ABC Albany affiliate News Center 10.

The school’s principal said the matter would be handled confidentially, reports CBS 6 Albany. However, the parents say the teacher was never suspended or reprimanded and never apologized.

“We’re constantly on our children: ‘Listen to the teacher, do what the teacher says,’” LaTonia Spencer, the director of student accounts at the University of Albany, told News 10 in an on-camera interview. “We never thought we’d have to say, ‘Don’t lick the desk if a teacher tells you to lick the desk.’”

The Spencers successfully switched their son out of that teacher’s class. Nevertheless, they allege the teacher directed their son’s former classmates not to speak with him anymore.

The district’s interim superintendent, Brian Howard, told The Huffington Post that he could not discuss the details of the incident due to rules and regulations regarding confidentiality.
