While many teachers struggle to grasp the attention of unruly students, one Texas educator tried to do so through explicit art.

ABC-7 reports that Language Arts teacher Kim Juzdowski drew a penis on a student’s assignment because he was acting like a you-know-what in class. Sandra Green says she was shocked when her son showed her the drawing. "I'm an educator myself so I said, ‘there's no way the teacher really did this.’" Despite her initial reservations, the act was confirmed. "She admitted to embarrassing the children rather than punishing them," Green said.

Juzdowski was not fired for the cartoon and school administrators say they are handling the situation. "Their reasoning was that she admitted it," Green told reporters. "Had she denied it she would have been removed from the school immediately. But because she admitted it they said it shows she's willing to change.”

In an email statement to Mashable, administrators further explained why they didn't let the teacher go. 

“The teacher has acknowledged that her actions were inappropriate and we are moving forward with adequate disciplinary action. Her actions are not in accordance to our Employee Handbook.”

In the meantime, Green says she’s looking to get her son transferred but that process can take more than a month. "If it was a man teacher doing it to a female student, they would have taken this totally serious," she said. "But because it's the other way around I think they're letting the light side go on it. And I just want him out of the environment."
