When his teacher asked him to remove is book bag, he cursed at her. “He told her he doesn’t give an ‘f,’ ‘b,’” revealed Lisette Lopez, the boy’s mother. “Those words are not acceptable in my house,” she added. The pre-teen’s foul-mouthed response got him suspended from James S. Rickards Middle School in Oakland Park, Fla., for three days. But his mother did not feel that was a strong enough punishment.
So, she made Erol hold a a sign in front of the entire school that read, in part: “I disrespected my teacher. I would like to apologize not only to that teacher but to all adults.” For each of the three days he is suspended, Erol will hold the sign during morning hours and at dismissal.
