(KPRC) - A Houston, Texas teacher is accused of using a marker to write reminder notes on his students who forget their school materials.

Victor Jimenez said his 8-year-old son came home from Thurgood Marshall Elementary School with what appeared to be the letter "B" in the middle of his forehead.

Jimenez claimed the teacher wrote it because the second grader did not finish his homework.

"For me, he does not have any professionalism or ethics at all," said Jimenez. "I do not understand how he can continue being a teacher."

Jimenez said this was not an isolated incident and claims he was told by the school that several other students have had the same problems with the same teacher.

Stunned parents disagree with the teacher's actions.

"Teach them a little better," said Ebony Terry.

"There's a different way you can teach them," said Shaunda Hurd. "I hope my child doesn't come home with marker on her forehead."

Jimenez said he wants to see his 8-year-old son succeed in school and is encouraging him to move on from what happened so he can focus on his studies.
