9-Year-Old Emanyea Lockett Suspended For Calling Teacher "Cute"

| by Michael Allen

Gastonia, North Carolina mother Chiquita Lockett says her 9-year-old son, Emanyea, was suspended from school for two days for calling a teacher "cute.”

Lockett said the principal of Brookside Elementary called her Wednesday to say the incident was a form of “sexual harassment.” Emanyea told WSOC-TV that a substitute teacher overheard him tell another student a teacher was cute, then he was suspended.

"It's not like he went up to the woman and tried to grab her or touch her in a sexual way," Lockett said. "So why would he be suspended for two days?”

A school district spokeswoman refused to go into detail, but said Emanyea was suspended for "inappropriate behavior" after making "inappropriate statements."

The district's Code of Conduct doesn't list "inappropriate behavior," but says "disruption of school" is punishable by five days of out-of-school suspension.
