Before the day was done that would result in so many hard questions and uncertainty South Carolina’s mother sent her son to school, she didn’t expect to receive a phone call. Considering her boy was in a class all day, she soon learned that wasn’t the case when the school accepted to making a sickening mistake concerning a strange man. when 65-year-old Joseph Fuller showed up a group of students from Edisto Primary School in the town of Cordova was leaving the court and headed back to class. According to the report, the man went right for the unnamed child in question, hugged him, and said he was there to pick him up from school early.
But the child didn’t know the man, but he was too confused to question it and went with him to the office, where the guy, fortunately, signed him out of school. According to KPLCTV, a school administrator asked the boy at checkout if the man he was with is his grandad, to which he simply said “yes,” and that was good quite for the school to release him to this stranger. Strange this is Fuller’s wife was in the car with them and handed the boy a Happy Meal from the front seat without ever turning around and looking at him.
There were three of them drove back to the “grandad’s” house, and when they walked in, Fuller’s wife accomplished what was going on. “He had a tooth missing in the front, and I know my grandson did not have a tooth missing in the front,” the woman told. “Immediately, I brought him back to school, and I am very sorry,” Fuller added, when he accomplished the mistake and took him back to campus.
While on the other hand, the child’s mother was able to quickly forgive the terrifying failure, accepting the relationships between her son and Fuller’s grandson, the boy’s father, Darrin Pressley, felt much differently.
“If they didn’t bring him back, my son could’ve been gone,” Pressley stated. “It’s gross negligence on the school’s part. My thing is, you know, have prevention so this could never happen again.” After that incident day and age, anyone accountable for children must be involved in protecting them. It’s frightful how careless the school was about checking a child out with someone other than his parents, and they have since promised to correct their methods.
However, it shouldn’t take an accident like this to apprehend that their system was flawed.
