A first grader in Colorado was recently suspended for 3 days after singing the song "I'm Sexy and I Know It" to another female student in the cafeteria line last week. He was "shaking his booty" near her while singing it.
The boy had been disciplined for singing this song previously, and the school labeled the incident "sexual harassment" under the following school handbook definition: Sexual harassment “must have negative effects on the learning or work of others.” (abc news)
The child's mother feels that the label of sexual harassment is inaccurate and unfair and his actions did not justify suspension.
