North Carolina mom in 'disbelief' after son, 10, punished for calling teacher 'ma'am'

 The piece of paper on which Tamarion, 10, was told to write the word "ma'am" as a form of punishment.

The mother of a 10-year-old boy in North Carolina is outraged that her son was recently punished for calling his fifth grade teacher "ma’am.”

“I was in disbelief,” Teretha Wilson, the boy’s mother, told Fox News on Saturday.

Wilson noticed her son, Tamarion, was not himself when she picked him up from the bus stop earlier this week.

“I asked him what was wrong, and he told me he got in trouble for saying 'ma’am' to a teacher. I was confused,” she said.

  1. Feminazi P.C. trumps politeness exhibited by an African-American child. A perfect example of the way we're headed and it's in the wrong direction.

    That teacher is an ignorant cow. I really wanted to say worse but reminded by this young man I learned better manners.


  3. It was the opposite when I was in 5th grade. Such outrageous disdain for politeness from a well-mannered student demonstrates a descent into evil! --Ron W

      & earlier.

  4. Southern culture and heritage is vocalized with the show of respect that is the use of the term "ma'am". That being the case, one is left to ponder who is responsible for hiring any dullard who would take offense at the use of that term with the only remaining question being how quickly will they can fire the wretch and send them back to yankeeville where they belong.

    Y'all have a nice day.

  5. In school there was very limited options Miss, Mrs, Mr, Ma'am, or Sir. I would never have considered any other titles.


  6. I hope someone explains to that kid that what he did was exactly what he should have done. Someone should explain to the teacher the meaning of "civility". Someone should explain to the school board that the teacher is not teaching the values we support and should suggest they hire teachers who do.
