A cute-as-a-button kindergartner was left roaming the halls of his Queens school after attempts to prevent overcrowding left the five-year-old without a classroom, according to a published report.
School officials even called the Administration of Children's Services on Hector's mom for allegedly abandoning him -- then they agreed to enroll him in the school, the newspaper reports.
Education Department officials finally intervened and Hector was enrolled last week, but he still wasn't placed in a regular classroom with his peers, the newspaper said. Instead, he sat all day with a teacher and then at lunch he walked the halls instead of sitting in the lunchroom.
Hector's mom says his two older siblings attend the school -- and that he should have had priority for admission based on this. She blames the school's principal, Delores Reid Barker, for the standoff.
"It doesn't seem fair. [The principal]'s trying to victimize me," Ramsammy told the paper. The News says she was reported to ACS last year by a school official for her other child's chronic absences due to illness, but documents show the case was not substantiated.
The school has not yet issued a statement.
