Oklahoma Teacher Allegedly Calls Student "Evil" For Being Left-handed

OKEMAH, Okla. (KFOR) - An Oklahoma mother is upset after an elementary school teacher forced her 4-year-old son to write with his right hand, even though he is left-handed.

An Oklahoma TV station reports that the child was sent home with a letter about how left-handedness is often associated with evil and the devil, even allegedly clipping and sending an article home with the child explaining her sentiments. It called left-handedness “unlucky,” “evil,” and “sinister.”

Alisha Sands, the child's mother who is also left-handed, says she went to the school superintendent with the article, but was disappointed by the response, "There was no suspension of any kind. There was basically nothing done to this teacher. She told them she thought I needed literature on it."

Sands plans on keeping her son at home before transferring him to another class. The school has not commented on the case, other than to say they are aware of it.
