HER parents SHOULD be EXPELLED from parenthood!!.. NOT the Girl'S fault..The teacher or principal SHOULD have taken the child HOME and seen WHAT the living conditions ARE in her Home!!!...

This story stinks. And the foul smell is not coming from the child or her mom. Missed 25+ days of school? Not for misbehavior, Not for breaking rules, Not for poor study habits.
If there was a hygiene or health problem in the household, CPS would have addressed it. "They have no open case at this time"
IMO---> This child has a strong case for a discrimination law suit. The school board seems determined to cheat her out of an education, or punish her mom for some unfathomable reason.

can someone explain to me the purpose of suspending a kid from school? especially for something like this.
are the people running the school retards? because that's what it seems like to me. suspensions do not fix problems it just causes more problems. schools are for teaching not keeping people from being taught.

I would bet, that at the bottom of this is one of those useless Child Services workers....pushed through college, due to affirmative action....yet, totally clueless as to doing the job......

teaching yes and for all ,not one , disturbing the masses is not a good idea, by sending the child home a lesson should be learned by the parents , because she may smell at school doesn't mean she does not have B/O at other functions .. birthdays parties for openers are not fun when you sit home

so perhaps the lesson is for the parents to seek a solution ....

you state the school is for an education... try this.. take away the children's electronics and put books in the hands ... your baby doesn't need to know your every move and visa/versa

I'd be mortified if the school sent my kid home because he smelled. What is wrong with the parent(s) of this child that they don't feel any shame in this? Totally unacceptable.

You fool Yankees don't know anything about decency & morality!
Just because you are used to stinking doesn't mean we like it here in GOD'S COUNTRY!
