Student claims teacher told him to pee in a lunchbox in classroom

Maybe it was a show and tell assignment gone bad. At least he didn't masturbate in it.

Boy Says Teacher Forced Him To Urinate In Lunchbox During Class

POSTED: 2:45 pm EDT March 17, 2008
UPDATED: 11:49 pm EDT March 17, 2008

ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. -- Orange County Public Schools is investigating claims that a student was forced to use a lunchbox as a toilet in front of his class at Meadowbrook Middle School.

The teacher will not be coming to school. She will be relieved of her duty with pay as the school district investigates, officials said.

"If you gotta go, you gotta go," student Quonterious Thomas told Eyewitness News in an interview Monday.

Thomas, 13, says his language arts teacher, Jameeka Chambers, gave him two options when he had to go to the bathroom at Meadowbrook Middle School in Orange County. She said he could wait until the end of class or use her lunchbox in the back of the classroom.

The sixth grader said he used her lunchbox.

"If I had waited any longer, I would have peed on myself and that would have been even more embarrassing," Thomas said, adding that his entire class of 19 students and his teacher watched.

When Thomas told his mom, she said she didn't believe it at first and later realized how traumatized he was.

"I have never, in all the days been living, ever heard about anything happening in all my life. This is a really big shocker for me," said Shameka Bryant, Thomas' mom.

Orange County Public Schools told Eyewitness News the claims are under investigation. The district has taken statements from students in the class, but has not spoken to the teacher.

Chambers has been out of town at an education conference in New Orleans. This is her first year on the job and her record is clean.

"I'm seeking counseling for him, asking questions. What was the purpose? I want to know," Bryant said.

Orange County Public Schools wouldn't specifically comment about what happened. The district says teachers have to allow students to use the restroom.

Watch Season 4 of The Wire and it will all make sense.

It doesn't sound like the kid was forced at all. He was given a choice, and chose to pee in a lunch box.

I say the kid should be suspended, charged with public indecency, and labeled a sex offender.

The kid can brag about peeing in his teacher's lunchbox for the rest of his life. That has to count for something.

Sounds to me like another case of a teacher engaging the entire class with unorthodox teaching methods and being unjustly punished for it.

I salute you, Jameeka Chambers. Oh captain, my captain.

Her, as in the teachers lunchbox? Why does the teacher carry a lunch box and even more strange, why should she offer it for her wacky suggestion?

I'm now confused at to why you thought I was confused about that which you were referring...

To answer your questions from the perspective of lunchbox being slang for butt in the middle schools of America:
  • Most teachers will carry a lunchbox, however, a select few will have had the misfortune of misplacing it gradually along the way. Don't you remember Mr. Johnson?
  • She offered her lunchbox because she's a sick freak who now needs to be charged as a sex offender! I mean, come on! In front of the whole class?!?!

It's racist to say "English".

Or rather, it's the class of English that assumes you can read and write the language, and now you're being taught all the style rules. Preposition means this, direct object is that, and so on.

Fancy name for English class. Except calling it English class now would assume all the students either know English or the school is forcing English on them and we can't have them speaking English in America!

I have to say I did a double take as well when I saw that it said her lunchbox. She's not only a bitch and a lousy teacher but a bit of a freak as well.

Whatever happened, I'm guessing the teacher is in the wrong to some degree. That said, watching the interview of the kid, I don't buy that it went down like he said. I hope they update us with the results of the school's investigation. Seems like it would be pretty easy to get some idea of what happened from the other 20 kids in the class.

Maybe...the teacher's response was kinda "off". But, what stupid ass would take a "or pee in my lunchbox" comment seriously?
