A Dickson County father says his son was denied food all day while being punished at Stuart-Burns Elementary School. Phillip Tucker told the school board last week that his son was never allowed to eat lunch or even a snack on April 19. In a Facebook post, Tucker says his son was in the “quiet room” for a verbal dispute with another boy. During that time he was not allowed to eat lunch and Tucker told the board his son twice asked the teacher if he could eat. In his post, Tucker says the teacher replied “in a minute” both times. Tucker says he addressed his concern with the principal and Director of Schools Dr. Danny Weeks, who both apologized. But in his post, Tucker says an apology “just isn’t good enough.” Tucker voiced his complaint during the public comment period of Thursday’s school board meeting but Chairman Tim Potter said since the matter was not on the agenda the board could not discuss the issue. Tucker said he had been told requests to be on the agenda had to be made seven days in advance of the meeting and the incident had only occurred the previous Friday. Potter said the matter is “still being addressed,” before the meeting was adjourned.
