(John Ransom, Headline USA) A Michigan school is being blasted by parents and outsiders after a five-year-old brought Cuervo margaritas to snack time and shared the liquor with her friends, said the New York Post.
The incident does nothing to improve parents confidence in public schools, which are already reeling because of teachers union’s policies on COVID, indoctrination of students into controversial topics like Critical Race Theory and poor performance of American students.
The girl was passing out drinks in Dixie cups at snack time and some students said later that they felt dizzy.
“She felt woozy, a little dizzy,” Dominique Zanders said of her daughter, according to the Post.
“The girl poured it in her cup and she drank it and the girl ended up telling her what it is, and she went and told the teacher there is liquor in this cup, and the teacher gave her a funny face,” Zanders said.
School parents are saying that the little girl admitted she knew it was liquor and shouldn’t be passed out at school, while they are also asking that the school staff and the girl’s parents be disciplined somehow.
“I had a small conversation with my daughter – nothing big – and she told me the girl knew it was liquor,” Alexis Smith, one mother, agreed, according to the Daily Mail.
Smith told the local Fox station that she would not be returning her child to the school and the school was closed on Friday.
“While we try to keep an eye on everything our students bring to school, that’s simply not possible,” said a statement from the school shared by KIRO 7.
“It’s unfortunate that these types of adult beverages can be easily mistaken for child-friendly drinks,” the school added.
That’s wasn’t a good enough excuse for Zanders.
“I’m not sure if they are short-staffed or whatever, it shouldn’t have happened,” Zanders told the Fox affiliate.
