I just hope the kids parents don't take a credit card, fill up their tank with gas and buy the kid a new pair of shoes!

Wow. Just wow.
I know nothing of their situation, so I am going out on a limb, but it sounds to me that the mother did not have the financial means, so she tried her best by trying to cover the sneakers with a black magic marker.
5 years old or not, I am sure the kid was already terribly ashamed from this fact, so to make such a big deal out of it, is truly offensive in my opinion.
The victim in all of this?
The poor kid. He will remember this for quite some time. He will carry the shame. All because he did not have black shoes?
That is truly a shame.
The human way to handle this would have been to call the mother, have her come pick him up. Or better yet, let him hang out in the principles office until school ended or something along those lines. Then tell the mother.
To downright embarrass him for nothing he did, that is despicable.
