(LOSANGELES.CBSLOCAL) — Parents at Broadoaks Children’s School of Whittier College learned last night about the removal of a teacher following allegations that he played a tongue touching game with a preschool student in February.

The alleged incident was first reported to school officials months ago but parents only got word of it last night during a meeting with administrators.

CBS2′s Jeff Nguyen spoke to parents and the school’s director.

One parent, who didn’t want to be identified, said, “You know when your kids start school, the first thing you look at is safety. And you put a lot of research into what is a good school for them. It’s hard when you think you found the right school and it’s not it.”
