A New Hampshire mom says she no longer wants her daughter’s teacher around her daughter after he allegedly cut a chunk of her hair.

In an interview with WMUR, Jillian Miglionico said her daughter was threatened by her teacher when she wouldn’t stop playing with her hair while in class. According to Miglionico, the teacher told his student that if she didn’t stop messing with her hair, he would cut it off.

But when Miglionico’s daughter told the teacher that he wasn’t allowed to do that and continued fussing with her hair, he reportedly grabbed a pair of scissors and chopped off “a good three-inch chunk” of the student’s locks:

“She didn’t [stop], and he threatened her and said, ‘Well, if you don’t stop playing with your hair, I’m going to cut your hair off.’ And she was like, ‘No, you can’t do that.’ He said, ‘Oh yeah? Watch me.'”

According to the mom, as the teacher walked towards her daughter, the eighth-grade middle school student felt threatened enough to defend herself:

“She had to defend herself and put her math binder in her face for protection. Anything could have happened to her.”

As Miglionico told WMUR, a teacher’s aid who saw the incident take place, reported it to the principal of Somersworth Middle School. The mom learned about the event after the principal contacted her about it. Miglionico couldn’t believe it.

She said her daughter was too embarrassed and scared to say anything about the incident:

“He grabbed her hair and cut it off. My daughter wasn’t even the one to report the incident because she was scared and embarrassed.”

During an investigation into the incident, the teacher, who has not been identified, was suspended for three days. However, according to Miglionico, the teacher has since returned, and her daughter was put back under his supervision. The mom said putting her daughter back in his class is “a total disregard for her.”

She told WMUR that she no longer wants “this man around my child” and believes he should no longer be a teacher:

“If you’re going to act like that with a middle school student, I don’t think that you should be able to be around and teach middle school students.”

The superintendent is now looking into the situation.

    What you should be upset about is your bratty, entitled, child. He didn’t attack her, he simply presented two choices. Your daughter choose poorly, likely due to a life of no consequences. How about you back up and look at the actual problem before your daughter is the next ignorant entitled brat shot by police because she didn’t want to comply to a simple request made by a person of authority.

    He needs to be surrendered from the school. And the parents should press charges

    He should definitely NOT be teaching any grade! Some people have that “habitual ” thing with playing with their hair, just like nail biting, what’s he going to do ?! Remove their nails if they are biting them??!…the rest of the parents from that school should back this student/mom .

    I think the teacher shouldn’t be able to teach anywhere!! That was abuse!! The Principal should’ve already looked into and have the teacher fired on the spot!! The teacher is a bully!!

    Yeah for the teacher! They are there to teach your children, which is almost impossible to do these days with the “not my child” attitude. How about the parents teaching their children to respect authority.

    I’m sure the teacher doesn’t want that little BRAT in his class either!! She should have kept her big, rude, disrespectful mouth shut!!! She is the one who should have been suspended!! Not the teacher!!!! WTH!!!
    Kids these days have NO respect for ANYONE!!!! Parents & teachers should be “allowed” to discipline their kids/students the way they want!! Not beat the crap out of them, but spank, put them in a corner, etc. But if that poor teacher “embarrassed” her by making her kneel in the corner, he’d be in jail!!! What are we as adults, teachers, police officers, etc. supposed to do? Allow everyone to do whatever they want? Come on, people/law makers smarten up!!!!

    Teach your child to respect authority instead of acting like she is the authority. She is there to learn not play with her hair. She is not the adult. If she doesn’t learn because she is not listening to the teacher then you will probably blame the teacher because she is stupid. Is she there to learn or be disrespectful?
