There's more to the widely reported story of the 9-year-old North Carolina student whose mother says he was suspended for sexual harassment for calling his teacher "cute."
WSOC-TV of Charlotte, N.C. — which broke the story that got worldwide coverage Monday — followed up Tuesday by reporting that officials at Brookside Elementary School in Gastonia sent Emanyea Lockett's mother a letter outlining further behavior it said was inappropriate and merited suspension:
In addition to the comment about the teacher, Emanyea had been warned about calling students bad words. They said all of the comments are inappropriate and violate the student code of conduct. ...
"What's in that letter, what they accuse him about — if that's true, I should have been notified about it," Chiquita Lockett said. "And if so, then I would have seen where a suspension would have taken place."
