School children were rounded up, marched into a room and told to drop their pants and check for poo.
The alarming incident took place at school in Gustine, Texas, after teachers kept finding faeces on the gym floor.
‘I felt like they violated my privacy,’ 11-year-old Eliza Medina told FCN. ‘I felt uncomfortable, and I didn’t want to do it.’
The little girl claims she was told to lower her pants ‘just below the butt’ and asked to check if they were clean.
Boys and girls were split up before the inspection.
Eliza’s mother, Maria, said: ‘I was furious. I mean, I was furious. If you can’t do your job or you don’t know what you’re doing, you need to be fired. You shouldn’t be here. Wrong is wrong.’
Gustine Independent School District Superintendent Ken Baugh agreed the course of action was not right.
He stressed: ‘That’s not appropriate, and we do not condone that. So you would take disciplinary action.’
But he argued pants were only lowered ‘a little’.
