Michigan teacher assaults student for not standing during pledge

Farmington teacher accused of mistreating student on leave

A MI teacher is on leave over allegations she got physical with a sixth-grade student over his refusal to stand for the Pledge of Allegiance, the Detroit News reports.

Sixth-grader Stone Chaney had just started his first week at a new school when the alleged incident occurred on September 7, according to WDIV.

Stone said his teacher then tried to force him to stand.

The next day when he once again chose not to stand, another teacher yelled at him regarding his decision.

The next day, Chaney said he was verbally reprimanded by another teacher for doing the same thing.

A teacher has been accused of assaulting a six grader student who did not stand for the Pledge of Allegiance as he believed to deliver his allegiance to his family and the creator of the world, God.

Chaney spoke Tuesday at a Farmington Public Schools board of education meeting, demanding answers.

"We are very disappointed that when we dropped our son off at East Middle School... we thought our son would be in nurturing hands", Chaney told The Farmington Voice. "I don't make him sit".

The ACLU of MI weighed in on the matter via Twitter, calling "any requirement for a student to stand for the pledge of allegiance... blatantly unconstitutional".

Officials for the district said Friday the teacher has been placed on administrative leave while the matter is investigated.

Since the incident, Chaney says he no longer feels safe attending the middle school. He's not anxious about what other people think of him'.

"The District fully supports the right of each student to participate or not in the daily Pledge".

"We don't want to paint the whole district with one whole brush", he said. Brian Chaney praised his son's ability to walk to his "own beat".

Phillina Mullin, Stone's mother, said the educator should not have touched Stone.

"I would love to be able to talk to them and get their side and explain my side so maybe we could come to an understanding", Stevens said.
