A Michigan mother is upset she wasn’t notified by her son’s school after he came home with multiple stab wounds he sustained while in class at Douglas Elementary in Garden City on Monday, Channel 7 Action News in Detroit reports.
Joy Renee Pratt says her 8-year-old son, Jordan Robinson, was stabbed with a pencil 27 times by a special needs classmate while the two were horse-playing around. Garden City Public Schools Assistant Superintendent Gary Murrell said there is no indication that the student intended to hurt Jordon.
While Pratt was upset about her son being stabbed, she was angered most about the fact that no one from the school called to tell her what had happened.
“They should have to call you,” said Pratt. “If something happens to your child, in their care, they should have to call you!”
This school should have known better than this for sure.
