A mom in Oklahoma is outraged after she says her 4-year-old's teacher stopped him from writing with his left hand and then sent home a brochure stating lefties have historically been considered "evil."
Alisha Sands told KFOR that she is a lefty, and her son Zayde has always favored his left hand.
But one day, she says she noticed he had switched to writing with his right hand after attending Oakes Elementary in Okemah. She asked him why, and said his answer shocked her.
The furious mom said she asked her son's teacher, who was not named, about what happened.
The school's superintendent, Tony Dean, said the issue was a misunderstanding and that the teacher "messed up."
