It’s like something straight out of The Simpsons. Tamarion Wilson of North Carolina was forced to do the exact same thing for showing his teacher some respect.
Tamarion, 10, had to write the word “ma’am” four times on each line of a piece of paper, front and back, after calling his teacher ma’am. The teacher said she told him before not to refer to her as ma’am.
Tamarion’s parents were outraged. They got in touch with the school, explaining that they taught him to address adults as “ma’am” or “sir.”
It’s unclear what (if any) backlash the teacher received, but his parents did move him to a different school.
