Mom angry after kindergarten teacher uses Ouija board with students


MILWAUKEE – The mother of a kindergarten student is upset after her child's teacher used a Ouija board during class.

WISN reports the unidentified mother is asking Milwaukee school officials to fire the teacher after what she felt was inappropriate use of the object.

Ouija boards are used by some who believe it helps the living to communicate with the dead.

The mom said the teacher was "shutting off the lights" and making it dark inside the classroom.  

However, the teacher claims the kids had been asking to hear a scary story and it was all done in fun. The teacher says she will now take the board home.

But the child's family believes the operation of Ouija boards is too much for a child to comprehend.

Milwaukee Public Schools placed the teacher on administrative leave during an investigation.
