SHENANDOAH, Iowa -- A western Iowa mother has complained to school officials that one of her son's fourth-grade teachers told other students they could spit on him.
Alexandria Kindopp told television station KETV that another teacher at Shenandoah Elementary School told her about the incident, which her son, Jaxon, later confirmed.
Jaxon told the station he'd been doing a "raspberry" at a classmate on Monday. He says his teacher asked how he'd like it if someone did that to him. Jaxon says she gathered his classmates around him and told him they could "spit away." Jaxon says some of them spit on his head and shoulders.
District Superintendent Jeff Hiser and school principal Tiffany Spiegel say they can't comment on the specific incident, but Hiser later acknowledged that the teacher had been suspended.
