Police say a young boy was beaten for his bad grades by his own mother.

The six-year-old ended up at Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital after Memphis, Tennessee police say his mother, Latasha Green, badly beat him.

According to police, the abuse was discovered at school after the child appeared sluggish and kept vomiting.

Police say the victim told them he was beaten for getting an “N,” which means Needs Improvement, on his report card.

Neighbor Tamika Matthews says this is unacceptable.
