Teen quits school because teachers "Bully" him for being Canadian



quote:

Specifically, Theodore Curinga, who serves as both Faith Fellowship Christian School's history teacher and principal.

"He would make fun of the way I dressed and he'd say, 'Oh, you're wearing Canadian colors,'" the Ottawa-born teen recalled to local CBS affiliate WWNY. "And I'd be like, 'Yeah, I am. Thanks, Mr. Curinga.' He'd say, 'That wasn't a compliment.'"

Noah says Curinga brought his anti-Canadian sentiments into the classroom with him, as did at least one other teacher.

"History class and sometimes math class … they were stereotyping Canadians and saying we were all stupid — it was offensive," Noah told the National Post.

One time, Curinga employed a Canadian coin Noah accidentally used in the school's cafeteria to make fun of him in front of the whole school.


quote:

In the meantime, Noah is completing his last semester of ninth grade from home through an online course.

Tina says she hasn't ruled out the possibility of leaving the US altogether.

"This is so intense right now that if it stays this way … if we feel ostracized this way, then we won’t stay,"

Isn't that some arrogant shit? I can't think of a single other nation that has claimed their own form of fricking bacon.

This feels like one of the those stories where the other side is going to have a much different version of the events.

Looks like someone is jockeying for a lawsuit. Either that, or their skin wasn't sufficiently thickened in Canada.

how is this acceptable for a teacher to do?

quote:

One time, Curinga employed a Canadian coin Noah accidentally used in the school's cafeteria to make fun of him in front of the whole school.

Curinga allegedly held up the toonie (a Canadian 2 dollar coin) at a school assembly and reminded students that Canadian currency was not legal tender in the states.

"Of course, everybody looked at Noah," said the boy's mother Tina.

You would think we would have done this by now. Something with a bald eagle & boobs on the package comes to mind.

Therein lies the problem. Our schools are for Americans. You people think they'd hire teachers to teach us in English if we went to Russia?
