A teacher in Connecticut has been arrested after allegedly forcing a five year-old student to eat from the trash.
Wired PR News – A 67 year-old Connecticut teacher was arrested after being accused of making a young student eat out of a trash can. As reported on FindLaw.com, Park City Magnet School kindergarten teacher Anne O’Donnell was arrested last week after purportedly making a five year-old boy eat food he had thrown away.
John Ramos, the school’s superintendent, is quoted as stating of the matter in a report by the Connecticut Post, “she was concerned the student had not eaten his lunch and asked that he eat the banana.” However officials are said to assert that the teacher took the food items from the garbage can before forcing him to eat them.
As noted in the report, O’Donnell may be charged with risk of injury to a minor.
