This Mom Picked Up Her 8-Year-Old Daughter From Detention Then Learned She’s Been Locked In A ‘Jail Cell’

No parent likes the idea of their child sitting in detention. Usually, detention equates to staying late after school to sit in a classroom, supervised by a teacher. But for 8-year-old Allegra, it meant something a lot different.

When Allegra’s Mother, Connie, got a call from the local elementary school saying that her daughter was in detention, she was upset with her daughter. When she went to pick her daughter up from the punishment, she got really upset with the school.

She found her daughter Allegra serving detention not in a classroom, but in what she calls a “jail cell.”

The school called the 2×4-foot area a “detention room,” however, Connie thinks it’s much more cruel than that.

Connie also believes that her daughter shouldn’t have been in detention in the first place. The school say s that the 8-year-old apparently threatened another student while her Mother insists that she was standing up for herself against a mean bully.

Even if little Allegra was rightfully in detention, Connie says the conditions she’d been kept in were completely unacceptable. She had apparently “been crying for hours.”

Since the incident occurred, Connie says Allegra has been sick for three days and that she is “traumatized.”

What do you think of an 8-year-old sitting in detention?
