School Pulls Tooth to Keep 10-Year-Old's Hands Out of Mouth

A mom in Framingham, MA., is breathing fire over an incident at Woodrow Wilson Elementary, where her son is a fourth grader. The staff yanked out the 10-year-old's molar and casually reported the incident to his mother by email, after the fact.
