A New Reason to Home School My Kid
Teacher tells student he could be ARRESTED for criticising Obama (but says Romney is fair game)
video below the story
I have been thinking about it. No disrespect to the teachers in our country BUT there is always a chance that your son or daughter will get a teacher that is just not qualified and possibly teaching based on personal beliefs and bias.
An update to this story reveals that the teacher has been suspended WITH pay.
Here is an example:
The audio is upsetting for a few reasons. The main one for me is just the lack of intelligence you can hear in the teachers voice. It is clear that the student is more rational that the teacher. The other reason it is disturbing is the amount of Bias you can hear in the teacher voice.
from the dailymail (a British news source, doesn’t that make us look great!?)
On the video, the teacher can be heard discussing with students a recent report that Mr Romney, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, had bullied someone as a youngster.
The 10-minute video uploaded to YouTube last Monday appears to be taken from a cell phone where only voices can be heard and it does not show anyone inside the classroom.
As the teacher explains the Romney allegations, the student asks: ‘Didn’t Obama bully somebody, though?’
The teacher responds that she was not aware of Mr Obama being a bully. She begins to raise her voice telling the student not to make ‘degrading’ comments.
The student tries to reply: ‘If you’re going to talk [about] Romney…’
But he is interrupted by the teacher, who starts shouting.
‘Uh-uh! Stop! Stop! No! Because there’s no comparison. He [Mr Romney] is running for President. Obama is the President.’
The student, not satisfied with that answer, went on to say: ‘If you’re going to talk trash about one side, you gotta talk trash about the other.’
However, the teacher disagreed. She said, ‘Let me tell you this: you’ve got to realize this man is wanting to be what Obama already is, OK?’
She continues, screaming: ‘That’s disrespect! That’s disrespect!’
The student contends that the teacher is the one being disrespectful – to Mr Romney. This infuriated the teacher.
She insists that the student follow her rule.
The teacher cried out: ‘You will not disrespect the President of the United States!’
The student retorted: ‘I’ll say what I want.’
She angrily counters: ‘Not about him you won’t.’
As the exchange went on, the student told the teacher that he had different beliefs than her and when he asked a question about Mr Obama and bullying, the teacher got ‘defensive’ and ‘freaked out.’
