CADDO PARISH, La., April 11 (UPI) -- A Louisiana teacher has been suspended after students allegedly heard her call one of their peers a very bad name.

Administrators at Evangel Christian Academy School gave a life science teacher a six-day paid suspension after she reportedly called a 12-year-old girl a “sassy slut.”

The parents of the girl claim she is “well-mannered and polite.”

"I'm just still numb about what happened and the disciplinary action that the school had taken," the girl’s mother, Marteen Mitchell, told KTBS. “I don't think it was fair at all they initially told me that she would receive one day suspension with pay and when I made it back to my job, I received a call from the principal that stated that the situation was serious and they wanted me to know that they would give her five additional days.”

Mitchell doesn’t want to see the teacher fired, but she is still waiting for an apology.

"A paid administrative leave, I guess you would think it's a vacation but it's not. I want to tell you any teacher or school employee that I've ever dealt with, who has been put out on paid administrative leave is very upset about it, they are very upset about the fact that they have been accused of something," said Jackie Landsdale, the president of the Red River Teacher's United Federation.

School principal Bud Dean declined to comment on the matter.
