CHULA VISTA, Calif. – When a father found out his 10-year-old son was denied a meal from his teacher, he took matters into his own hands.
Luis Valdivia claims the Hilltop Drive Elementary School teacher did not let his son have “second chance breakfast” because he did not do his school work, ABC10 reported.
The breakfast food is for students who miss the meal at home before going to school.
“I asked her if I can get second chance breakfast and when I asked, she said ‘no.’ I just went back to my seat all frustrated,” the 10-year-old told the station.
Outraged, Valdivia went to the elementary school and confronted the teacher, while capturing it all on camera.
“So you’re calling my son a liar regarding Monday?” Valdivia asked in the video.
“Monday, I did not let him eat,” the teacher said.
Valdivia claims this is the second time his son was denied food at the school. The first time, however, she apologized.
The outraged dad hopes the teacher will be terminated for her actions.
But because second chance breakfast is not a mandated meal, the teacher did not break any laws like Valdivia accused her of in the video.
A spokesman for the school told 10News they are looking into the complaint. It is unclear if the teacher will be disciplined for the incident.
