JACKSONVILLE, FL -- A teary-eyed second grader says he learned his lesson about responsibility.
His mother made him stand on a street corner across from his school Wednesday with a sign that read, "I was rude to my teacher. I can't come to school. I'm sorry."
Marcia Harvey said her son just made the honor roll at Brentwood Elementary. But she said he he had a lapse in judgement and acted up in class.
Harvey says she loves her son very much but she wanted to teach him a lesson about making good choices, and the consequences of making bad ones.
"I want him to be successful in life," said Harvey. "This is something I thought of that would maybe get his attention."
"I got to be good in school," the boy said as tears rolled down his face.
Others noticed and offered encouragement.
A crew picking up garbage drove by and shouted, "Be good, stay in school!"
