Boy forced to clean toilets in detention

A Maryland mother is outraged after her son told her he was forced to clean during an after school detention.

Henry Hawkins is a fifth grader at Longfield Elementary School in Maryland and admits to getting into an argument with another classmate.

He doesn’t deny he should get detention, but isn’t so sure he should be forced to clean toilets as part of the punishment. His mom agrees.

Neshanna Turner says her son has asthma, and shouldn’t be forced to wipe down desks and scrub bathrooms.

She took her concerns to the school district, which is now reviewing the case.
