[P]arent Hayley White was summoned to her seven-year-old son’s primary school and told that her [son] Elliott had been at the centre of an ‘incident’ with another pupil, the Daily Mail reports.
She was told that the situation was so serious she would have to sign an official form admitting he was racist; something Ms White refused to do.
The reason for this demand was because her son had asked a four-year-old pupil during break time if he was “brown because he was from Africa”. …
Elliott’s mother was given a copy of the school rules to read with particular focus on its ‘zero-tolerance’ policy on racism.
“I was told I would have to sign a form acknowledging my son had made a racist remark, which would be submitted to the local education authority for further investigation,” she said.
“I refused to sign it, and I told the teacher that in no way did I agree the comment was racist. My son is inquisitive. He always likes to ask questions, but that doesn’t make him a racist.”
