Colorado Boy, 6, Suspended for Sexual Harassment
School: The Boy Told a Girl "I'm Sexy and I Know It"
Aurora, CO (AP) - A 6-year-old boy has been suspended from his suburban Denver school for three days for sexual harassment after quoting a line from a song.
School officials say the first-grader was sent home from Sable Elementary School after telling a girl "I'm sexy and I know it," a line from a popular song.
The Aurora school issued a statement saying it couldn't discuss the case, but referred to a school board policy that defines sexual harassment as any unwelcome sexual advance. There is no age limit.
KMGH-TV reports the boy is accused of disrupting other students. He was sent home Wednesday.
The boy's mother says it's the second time her son has gotten in trouble for quoting the song. She questions whether he knows anything about sexual harassment.
