SIMPSONVILLE, S.C. (AP) - South Carolina school officials are investigating after a parent accused a teacher of throwing away her 6-year-old daughter’s shoes and making her walk around barefoot.

The child’s mother, Chartrese Edwards, tells WSPA-TV (https://bit.ly/2bFkYi6) that the incident happened last week at Simpsonville’s Bryson Elementary School.

Edwards says her daughter told her the unidentified teacher had thrown away her shoes after repeatedly asking the child to stop messing with them in class. The girl says the strap was bothering her.

The child said she was embarrassed after having to walk around barefoot before the teacher told her to retrieve her shoes from the trash and put them back on.

Greenville County Schools District said in a statement that it doesn’t tolerate embarrassment or humiliation as a form of punishment and is investigating the matter.
