An unidentified 12-year-old female student was reportedly called a "sassy slut" by a life science teacher at Evangel Christian Academy School in Shreveport, La. last Thursday.

The girl's parents claim other students in class also heard the remark, but say the teacher was only given a six-day paid suspension, notes WGNO.

"I'm just still numb about what happened and the disciplinary action that the school had taken," the girl's mom, Marteen Mitchell, told KTBS.

Mitchell doesn't want the unidentified teacher fired, but is upset that she has not received an apology from the teacher or the Christian school.

Jackie Landsdale, President of Red River Teacher's United Federation (a teacher's union), claims that paid administrative leave is not a vacation.

"I want to tell you any teacher or school employee that I've ever dealt with, who has been put out on paid administrative leave is very upset about it, they are very upset about the fact that they have been accused of something," stated Landsdale.

Lansdale also claims that paid administrative leave is the normal action for public schools.

In Louisiana public schools, if a student makes a false accusation against a teacher, the student is suspended.
