WHITNEY, TX (KXXV) -

A Whitney mother is looking for answers after the school failed to contact her when her son was slapped by a teacher.

Felicia Arrington's son Daniel Jordan, a sixth grader at Whitney Middle School was open-handed slapped by a subsitutute teacher on Tuesday while at school. According to Jordan, he and another friend were horsing around, when the teacher seperated the two boys. Jordan said when he went to apologize to his friend, the teacher struck him on the back - so hard he went to the nurse's office. 

"I asked if I could call my mom, and they said why, and I said because I got hit by a teacher, and the counselor said, 'yeah right', and one of the nurses I showed them my back, and there was a hand print on it." Jordan said.

Arrington said the school never contacted her about the incident. She didn't find out her son had been hit until she got off of work later that evening, when a family member told her.

According to Whitney ISD, officials said the teacher responsible for the slap was immediately sent home and will no longer be working at the school. School officials said that the principal who usually handles these type of incidents is out of the office. 

Arrington is still not satisfied with the school's response and is exploring possible legal options.

"If you can't control  your actions around children then you don't need to be here. I told her if it would have been a parent that done this CPS would have been called, and the police department and the parent would have went to jail," Arrington said.
