School Pulls Tooth to Keep 10-Year-Old's Hands Out of Mouth

A mom in Framingham, MA., is breathing fire over an incident at Woodrow Wilson Elementary, where her son is a fourth grader. The staff yanked out the 10-year-old's molar and casually reported the incident to his mother by email, after the fact.

The mom, Sabrina Grant, was told by her son's teacher that they took this unusual step because her autistic son, Chris, was overly distracted by a loose tooth. But whoever did the pulling left the loose tooth intact and pulled out one behind it.

Grant has since kept her son out of school and is considering pursuing criminal charges of assault and child abuse.
