Sierra Carter got a shocking phone call from her daughter's elementary school teacher. Her fifth grader had drawn a picture that was deemed "inappropriate." The drawing, a pink pig with a necktie in the shape of what could be interpreted as a private part was noticed by another student.
The girl told the teacher she drew a "bow tie," but the teacher gave the picture to the principal without talking to the child or showing the picture to her mom.
Sierra was shocked to see the drawing for the first time during the meeting and argued with the principal that it was a bow tie. The principal insisted it was not and the picture was added to the child's student file. Carter feels that every adult involved should have asked the child what she drew and not assumed that it was inappropriate.
