KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Sparking debate this morning, a Missouri mother is outraged when she finds out her son's desk is in a coat closet at school.

Cody, 9, is in the third grade. His mother Rita says while at the school for a book fair... she was shocked to find her son's desk isolated in the closet, blocked by bookshelves.

The teacher asked students where they wanted to sit and says Cody chose to sit in the closet.

But Cody says the teacher moved him there, because he was talking in class.

Rita demands to know why a teacher would allow a student to be separated from the class, especially since he has a learning disability.
