One Tulsa mother is furious after her daughter came home saying another student passed around drugs at school.
When most parents ask their kids how their day was at school, you don’t expect your child to say they held a controlled substance – but that’s what happened to Thean Parker.
She says a group of students were passing around a plastic bag of a white powdered substance at the Union 6th and 7th Grade Center. Parker’s daughter was among the students who saw the plastic bag, which she says later tested positive for cocaine.
"I'm just still trying to get answers from the school and I'm not getting those answers yet," said Parker.
A school spokesperson released a statement to Tulsa's Channel 8 saying the substance 'was then turned over to staff and security and was then turned over to The Tulsa Police Department.'
Parker says her daughter and several other students now face suspension but she wants to know who brought this substance to school in the first place.
"I'm in shock, I'm angry, I'm confused," said Parker. "Why is my child being punished for another kid bringing a controlled substance to school and exposing her and other children and putting them at risk. I just still don't understand why my child is being punished."
We’ve reached out to Tulsa police to find out exactly what the substance was.
