This is in such poor judgement by the teachers of this school. You have to wonder what they were thinking!

A number of teachers in a Texas school district are being disciplined after naming a student “most likely to become a terrorist.”

Lizeth Villanueva, a seventh grader, received a certificate during a mock awards ceremony Tuesday at Anthony Aguirre Junior High in Channelview, Texas, near Houston. Lizeth said the teacher who signed it handed out certificates to a number of students while other teachers watched and laughed.

“They just found it as a joke,” said Lizeth, 13.

The awards were given out a day after the suicide bombing at the end of the Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, England.

It’s no laughing matter to Lizeth’s mom.
