(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.
