Chicago Public Schools officials say they've started an investigation after a teacher apparently posted a photo on Facebook of a student who wore Jolly Rancher candies in her hair.
The 7-year-old girl's mother says she saw negative comments written about her daughter's picture on the teacher's Facebook page. The elementary school student had tied the candies at the end of her braids.
CPS officials say the mother complained to the principal. CPS officials say they are determining if any policies were violated and if they were there will be disciplinary action.
CPS spokeswoman Monique Bond says the principal said it is a case of a good teacher and poor judgment.
The mother says she wants the teacher to apologize to her daughter.
