STERLING, Conn. (AP) – Parents in a small eastern Connecticut town are demanding action by local officials after a man went to a school to pick up his great-grandson and took the wrong child home.

The 5-year-old boy’s mother was among the parents who criticized school officials in Sterling during a board of education meeting Tuesday night.

The mother, Angela Stone, says it happened Friday afternoon at Sterling Community School. She says her son refused to get out of the man’s car at his home, and the man’s wife noticed the mistake. He then drove the boy back to the school.

Stone called school officials incompetent and says they should be disciplined.

School Superintendent Rena Klebart acknowledges mistakes were made and says officials are making changes to prevent it from happening again.
