A mother in Florida has ensured her daughter experienced the ultimate shame for her low grades, by sending her to school in a humiliating t-shirt.

The 31-year-old wrote a note on both sides of a white t-shirt for her daughter to wear to school. The shameful message was intended to embarrass her infront of her friends.

The child was also said to have been beaten by her mother, Floridian Melany Alexander, and according to Bay News 9, a Department of Children and Families employee said that she, “was very uncooperative, but later stated she did, in fact, strike [the child] numerous times with a white leather belt because she was failing school.”

Alexander is being help without bail while she faces serious child abuse charges and is not allowed any contact with her daughter.
