WTF News: Teacher Locks Student in Closet and Leaves For the Day

A Memphis teacher is in trouble after locking a student in a classroom closet and then leaving for the day.

Kids can be a bit much at times but some people take discipline way too far. A Memphis teacher locked a 5-year-old girl in a closet and then left the school for the day, reports Associated Press. 

The teacher, whose name wasn’t released, has been suspended and the child was not hurt. The teacher wasn’t at the school when police arrived. No charges have been filed but the police are investigating.

This sounds all kinds of shady, even down to how authorities are handling this.
