    Teacher Allegedly Makes Boy Spray Self With Lysol

    ELYRIA, Ohio -- A school district was sued by parents who say their son's fourth-grade teacher made the boy spray himself with Lysol in front of classmates because of body odor.

    The lawsuit was filed Wednesday in Lorain County Common Pleas Court against the Sheffield-Sheffield Lake district in suburban Cleveland. It asks for $50,000 in damages for public humiliation and subsequent harassment by classmates.

    The boy still suffers emotional distress over the incident, according to his attorney, Michael Duff.

    Bill Emery, school board president, said he was unfamiliar with the March 2003 incident at Forestlawn School and said he knew of no disciplinary problems involving the teacher.

    The teacher, David Stacko, who has retired, has an unlisted phone number and could not be reached for comment Thursday.
    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    Gosh this makes me mad! You know it's bad enough for kids to deal with the whole bully situation, but this teacher just put a target on this poor boy. There are better PROFESSIONAL ways for a teacher to handle student's body odor without publically humiliating a child.
