Latasha Green (pictured) was arrested and charged with aggravated child abuse after she allegedly beat her 6-year-old son so badly that he needed to be taken to a hospital, reports KISS Detroit.

When the first-grader received his report card last month, Green became incensed with the boy and hit him when she saw an “N” on his card; the letter grade stands for “needs improvement.”

The boy was reportedly “whipped” in the face and beaten about his torso, Memphis police said.

The abuse was later discovered by school officials, cops said. The child behaved strangely at school and vomited repeatedly before an ambulance was called. The elementary school tot had to be transported to a children’s hospital where, upon examination by doctors, he was found to have a cracked skull, cuts about his body, and damage to his pancreas.

Meanwhile Green, who was released Monday night on a $25,000 bond, is set to appear in court May 29 to respond to the allegations.

The boy is recovering from his injuries.
