Mom claims teacher's aide pulled out son's wrong tooth
FRESNO, California (KFSN) -- A Massachusetts mom is biting mad at her son's school. She says a teacher's aide yanked out his supposedly loose tooth. But the aide pulled the wrong tooth.
It happened at Wilson Elementary School in Framingham. Ten-year-old Chris Quirk is an autistic boy in the 4th grade. The big gap in his mouth shows where two teeth are now missing. It started last week when Chris went to school with a loose tooth. An email from his teacher said the loose-wiggly tooth had been a distraction. Without parental permission, a teacher's aide pulled out Chris' tooth.
"Sabrina grant-oh my god what did they do, did they hold my kid down, did he want them to do this," Sabrina Grant said. "How could somebody not even medically trained pull a tooth that wasn't even loose out of his mouth."
The superintendent is investigating, but no disciplinary action has been taken yet. Chris hasn't been back to school since the incident, and his mother is considering a lawsuit.
