KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - A Kansas City mother accused of beating up her child's kindergarten teacher faces an assault citation.
Police reports say the mother was upset because her 6-year-old son had come home that day with a scratch on his neck. The boy said the teacher gave him the scratch when she disciplined him.
But a district official says that when the boy's father took the child to school Friday, he told administrators and police that the teacher hadn't hurt him.
