A mother stood up to a school after they tried punishing her daughter for hitting a boy after he allegedly attempted to sexually assault her.
According to the unidentified daughter, a boy repeatedly kept pinging her bra despite the fact she told him to stop it, Daily Headline reports.
When the girl complained to the teacher, the instructor reportedly told her to “ignore it.”
That’s when the situation escalated and the boy undid the girl’s bra. To make him stop, she hit him.
Yet the school decided to reprimand the daughter for hitting the boy instead, enraging the girl’s mother.
“No,” the mother responded to the principal after he accused her daughter of attacking another student. “She defended herself against a sexual attack from another pupil. Look at them; He’s a foot taller than her and twice as heavy.”
“If the person who was supposed to help and protect her in a classroom couldn’t be bothered what should she have done?” she added.
When the mother continued, calling this “sexual assault” and adding she will press charges, school officials said she was overreacting.
“I don’t think it was that serious,” one of the teachers said, while a school counselor added, “Let’s not over-react.”
