FLAGLER COUNTY, Fla. — A Florida mom claims a 4-year-old son’s elementary school teacher made him unclog the dirty classroom toilet with his bare hands.

Tiffany Huffman said her son’s pre-kindergarten teacher claimed her son clogged the toilet before and this time he was going to be taught a lesson.

“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,” Huffman told WKMG ORLANDO. “He felt like people were watching him have to do this. He was humiliated.”

Huffman said when she heard about the incident she immediately called the school and the teacher admitted to doing it, but said the toilet is now clean. Huffman said she doesn’t care about the toilets and she’s furious about the incident.

“It’s endangering his health. I realized afterwards that there was cuts on his hands but like the bacteria, anything could set in on those cuts,” she said.

Huffman said she wants her son to continue going to that school, but she will not let him go back into that teacher’s classroom.

The Flagler County School District released a statement saying they are investigating the allegations and will determine if the teacher should be disciplined.
