Second grader claims he was handcuffed at school for misbehaving

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - A Kansas City second grader said his school treated him like a criminal Wednesday by placing him in handcuffs simply because he was misbehaving.

"Some of the kids were messing with me," second grader Kalyb Primm Wiley said of what started the incident.

He said after his classmates teased and taunted him, he started screaming but never got physical with other students or teachers. And when the teacher couldn't calm him down, he said a school security officer took him to the principal’s office like a criminal.

"We were halfway down the hall, he put handcuffs on and twisted my wrists a little," Kalyb said.

"I don't think any 7-year-old should be in handcuffs unless he was armed with a weapon, or violent," Kalyb’s mother Tomesha Primm said.

Kalyb’s parents said his teacher called them when he was reportedly misbehaving. When his father showed up at the school’s front office, Kalyb was in handcuffs.

A spokesperson for the district said the officer followed proper procedures and this was a necessary step to ensure the safety of the student and others.

The district also said school security officers use handcuffs on children as a last resort and only when a situation gets out of hand to make sure everyone stays safe.

But according to Kalyb, handcuffs are not for kids-- only for the bad guys.

"Criminals, robbers, bank robbers, stealers," the second grader said. "Because kids are not that bad."

Kalyb’s parents want the district to re-evaluate their policy to make sure they don't treat young kids like criminals. They have taken him out of school and plan on moving their son to another district.

"Safety"? LMAO......because God knows a security guard is no match for a 4 foot 3 seven year old. Lil' man just stopped pissing on himself but they scared like that? BS. They did that as a form of intimidation, I guarantee the cuffs come with a "if you are going to behave like a criminal, we will treat you like one" speech. 

They can at least be honest. I would also demand to see in the student handbook/policy where hand cuffs are specified and when they are used.

Let me get this straight.  

Tokyorose will make a child do a written punishment if her kids get out out of line.
In America, that would not be okay.  It's child abuse.

Tokyorose will make a child sit or stand up with his or her hands on their heads until they have calmed down.
In America, that would not be okay.  It's child abuse.

Tokyorose will call a student out when that child gets out of control and she will take away that child's play time, if necessary.
In America, that would not be okay.  It's child abuse.

But HANDCUFFING A CHILD is OKAY?  It's not considered child abuse?

WTF am I missing?

If teachers had more control over their classrooms, there would be no need for the damn handcuffs.

I have a seven year old and he would have had a panic attack.  I would sue the city.

Didnt read/watch.

But I work with kids who act a plum fool in school and you can't touch them at all... Sometimes you have to call the police in to keep from being sued and losing your job...

I know that in NYC if you make a kid write lines, you can be written up for it because it is seen as child abuse.  This is coming from a friend who used to teach in the Bronx.

Another acquaintance has told me that when you teach certain stories, you aren't allowed to have the kids change the endings.  

You aren't allowed to say, "See what happens if you do that again" because that is considered verbal threatening.  

There seems to be a lot of ridiculous school rules I have come across from educators across the country who would be stuck in a rubber room if they were to do things the way some of us do them over here.

ETA: Now that I think of it, I remember when I was being interviewed by a panel about classroom management.  Do you know that they told me that it wasn't acceptable when I told my students if they tipped in their chair, they were going to lose it for 5 minutes...because that would be embarrassing the student???  Never mind the safety issue.  They were more concerned that despite me giving warnings about what would happen should they continue that behavior that...I would somehow embarrass the child. Confused
