Teacher Compares Student’s Romney Shirt to KKK Robe


wow..............


quote:

A Philadelphia high school teacher is under investigation after she reportedly ordered a student to take off a t-shirt supporting Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign and compared the shirt to a Ku Klux Klan sheet. FOLLOW TODD ON FACEBOOK FOR CULTURE WAR STORIES. CLICK HERE TO JOIN! The incident occurred at Charles Carroll High School in Port Richmond. When the student refused the order, she tried to throw the girl out of class. The teacher reportedly told the 16-year-old student that the high school was a “Democratic school” and then threatened to use a marker to cross out Romney’s name. Philadelphia School District spokesman Fernando Gallard confirmed to Philly.com that, “a teacher made some comments to a student wearing a Romney t-shirt in their classroom.” “The comments were of a political nature, and also of a personal nature,” he told the newspaper. “We are looking into the comments, and the conduct of the teacher.” Gallard said the student was well within her rights to wear the t-shirt and was not in violation of any school dress codes. In the meantime, the teacher was switched out of the class “to allow the student to feel comfortable to come to the class.” Gallard said the student was within her rights. “She was expressing her freedom of speech, and was not in violation of any school or district policy,” he told the newspaper. The incident became public when the child’s father called radio station IQ 106.9 FM. Richard Pawlucy told radio host Larry Mendte that the incident happened on a day when students were allowed to “dress down.” He recounted what his daughter’s Geometry teacher told the girl. “Are you seriously wearing a Romney shirt — and then she told her to get out,” Pawlucy told the radio station. “My daughter took it as a joke. But the teacher left the room and called other teachers and students into her classroom.” She said the teacher pointed at his daughter and said, “Look at this girl — wearing a Romney shirt.” “My daughter refused to leave the classroom or acknowledge this bullying,” he said. That’s when the teacher compared the Romney shirt to a KKK garb and told her, “This is a Democratic school.” “I never knew a school had a party affiliation,” he said. When his daughter went back to class she hid in the bathroom until the teacher left. He said other students were taunting her. “Her classmates were telling her –‘how can you do this to our teacher?’” he recounted. “Why don’t you like Obama? We all like Obama – why don’t you like Obama?” Mendte was astounded by the incident — especially since it happened in the city where they signed the U.S. Constitution. “A child shouldn’t be bullied going into a classroom just because she’s politically aware — just because she has an opinion and just because she happens to support a candidate that you do not support,” Mendte said.

Email the school

And tell them you believe this teacher should be fired for trying to bully a CHILD into not having an opinion.

It really is amazing how protected Obama is. That's what scares me the most about him. How protective people are of him and how protected he is from the media.

I've never quite seen anything like it.

I read this. That's why all politics should be left out of our schools. A "free dress day" should have stipulations such as no political dress.
This is one good way to make sure no kids are bullied.

I agree with this. But the teacher still has no right to inject political opinion into the classroom. (which has happened all the fricking time)

The funny thing, is that if Obama was white, this shite wouldn't even matter to a lot of Obama disciples. Probably wouldn't have even known there was a debate.

the bolded parts are by far the worst parts of the story

once again, the Dems prove how "tolerant and accepting they are"

So you would vote against the First Amendment be a part of the Bill Of Rights. How enlightening it is about your character, maybe you should move to Cuba and you won't have to worry about such evils.

Not true. The student in NC didn't egg it one. The fricking teacher brought it up and asked if anybody was agaisnt obama?

I won't deny this. Doesn't excuse Ms. Shaniqua Washington for calling it KKK garb and telling the student to get out.

How can schools require standard uniform codes?

Why are you assassinating my character because I believe in school uniforms?

It might be because you are not for uniforms, but for uniformity of thought.

You think that teacher is not spewing democratic shite on other days. Someone showing this judgment never would say a word until a dastardly provocation in the form of a Tshirt?

Sort of like blaming a women for having a diamond ring stolen... biatch shouldn't have worn it anyways to the park... she was asking for it.

Just emailed the school and demanded she be fired. Damn stories like this piss me off. If I was that girl's father, I'd go down to that school and punch that bitch in the throat!
