(Newser) – A teacher in a Newfoundland fishing village put a student out in the hallway for a period and sprayed him with Febreze—for smelling fishy. The mother of 10-year-old Christian Robertson said he was teased by other students after having fried fish for lunch, and then bullied by his teacher. "I think my son was treated not like a human being—I think he was treated like a dog, or a cat," she tells CBC. "I'm very hurt and very angry over this." The school board has apologized, and placed the teacher on paid leave while it investigates.

Christian Roberts' mom complained to the school board about the teacher's "disgraceful" action.   (Facebook)
