Monroe County court records show that the parents of a West Amory Elementary second-grader who was unusually disciplined were awarded a $75,000 settlement from the school district.
The settlement was finalized in Monroe County Chancery Court last week.
Johnny and Regina Frederick of Wren had filed a notice of intent to sue and seek $500,000 from Amory School District and school principal Leigh Todd.
Todd allegedly made the boy stick out his tongue March 7 as punishment for sticking out his tongue and telling a teacher to shut up. Todd was fired in April.It is outrageous that $75,000 will be taken FROM TAXPAYERS, because a second grader was made to stick out his tongue.
