"The inaccuracies in the original media story have resulted in a great deal of criticism and scrutiny of the system that is unwarranted," she said.
She said the boy's drawing was seen as a potential cry for help when the student identified himself, rather than Jesus, as the figure on the cross, which sparked the teacher to alert the school's principal and staff psychologist. "
"But after a few days on the cross themselves -- and staying silent because of confidentiality issues -- Taunton school officials began telling a much different story. In a statement posted on the system's Web site, school officials said that in fact the boy had never been suspended, the teacher never requested that the children make a drawing that reminded them of Christmas or any religious holiday, and that the drawing that the boy's father distributed to the media is in fact not the one the boy's teacher discovered and was concerned about."
"The father states in that article, "It hurts me that they did this to my kid," Chester Johnson, the boy's father, told the Globe. "They can't mess with our religion; they owe us a small lump sum for this."
All signs point to: "daddy's a shitbag and is using his kid (and jesus) to gain attention and money.
