    A four year old

    4 -year-old Accused of Improperly Touching Teacher
    by Jennifer Kent

    BELLMEAD- A four-year-old hugged his teachers aide and was put into in-school suspension, according to the father. But La Vega school administrators have a different story.

    Damarcus Blackwell's four-year-old son was lining-up to get on the bus after school last month, when he was accused of rubbing his face in the chest of a female employee.

    The prinicipal of La Vega Primary School sent a letter to the Blackwells that said the pre-kindergartener demonstrated "inappropriate physical behavior interpreted as sexual contact and/or sexual harassment."

    Blackwell says it's ridiculous that the aide would misread a hug from a four-year-old. Blackwell wrote to administrators demanding that the whole incident be expunged from his son's academic file because his son is too young to know what it means to act sexually.

    David Davis, the executive director of the Advocacy Center in Waco tends to agree with Blackwell. He says assuming the boy has not had sexual encounters, or been inappropriately exposed to pornography, most four-year-olds are sexually innocent.

    Blackwell got a response from the La Vega administration. The sexual references on the discipline referral were removed. But the thing that makes Blackwell most upset is they told him "your request for an apology by the aide and removal of all paperwork regarding this incident is denied." Now the young student's file will refer to the incident as "inappropriate physical contact." And Blackwell says he will continue to fight the district.

    La Vega I.S.D. administrators told News Channel 25 they couldn't comment on this case because of student privacy issues.

    Well that is just odd right there. The teachers aid should be looked into, anyone thinking a 4 year old was making a sexual advance should be looked at. Wheres your head at woman

    The accusation is absurd, no doubt. It's a warped world we live in, that a 4 yo hugging an aide, is accused of sexually inappropriate conduct.

    However, as an educator, I might point out that teachers and aides have been similarly accused, for similarly innocent gestures of genuine warmth and/or affection. When you touch a student, FOR ANY REASON, you have to be prepared for the possibility of an accusation of inappropriate contact.

    Wait a sec... when you touched my no-no place, that was just a gesture of genuine warmth, right?
