A third grader was brought to tears after being banned from a school party because she didn’t take a Common Core test, according to her mom.
Michele Thornton told Fox News that her 9-year-old daughter Cassidy was “bullied” by Oldmans Township School officials who wouldn’t allow her to attend an end of year party with her classmates because she didn’t take the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers test.
“She shouldn’t be punished for something I did,” Thornton said. “She’s not a bad kid. It’s bullying. I’m not 9. They can’t bully me.”
Thorton said she had to pick Cassidy up from school early on Monday while the other students were at the party.
“When I went in to pick her up, there were two gaming trucks, an outdoor play area, cupcakes, juice boxes and buckets full of prizes for the kids,” Thornton told Fox News. “She left school crying.”
After Thornton complained, the school agreed to launch an investigation. But, in an email Thornton received Friday, the school said they found no signs of bullying.
“Mr. and Mrs. Thornton. The HIB [harassment, intimidation, and bullying] investigation has been completed. Findings indicate that harassment, intimidation and bullying did not occur,” the email read.
Because, it seems, ostracizing a little girl and making her cry is not harassment, intimidation and bullying if the school does it.
