Marco Inskip, a 40-year-old substitute teacher at Charles L. Spragg Elementary School in Egg Harbor City, N.J., has been accused of telling a 7-year-old girl she was dressed "too sexy for gym today," CBS New York reports.
Henry Wilson, the girl's father, told the station he filed a police complaint against the teacher, who has been suspended from the school district.
"You just don’t talk like that to children,” parent Debbie Maser told WGHP-TV. “You don’t use those kind of words in reference to them.”
The Press of Atlantic City reports the 7-year-old told a teacher that Inskip said a "bad word to her," but didn't want to use the word "sexy."
Wilson said he appreciates the school's action, but wants it to go further.
“The guidance counselor talked to her, and I’m happy with how the school responded," Wilson told the paper. “I just don’t want him to be able to go to another district and do the same thing."
According to the Cherry Hill Courier Post, the Egg Harbor City school board plans to visit the case against Inskip in May.
