Public school teachers are no longer hiding their radical leftist views. Earlier in the week, a librarian in Massachusetts refused a gift of Dr. Seuss books that Melania Trump donated to the school, calling them “racist” when in reality, she simply doesn’t agree with President Trump’s politics. These intolerant bully “educators” need to be held accountable for their actions by the parents, as it appears in both cases, a simple apology is all that is required for their harmful and embarrassing behavior.
Two students at a metro Atlanta elementary school say they were singled out for what they did during the Pledge of Allegiance.
Tuesday morning at Orrs Elementary School, 10-year-old Jason Newberry said he and one classmate put their hand over their heart while reciting the Pledge of Allegiance. He said when they did, others in the class called them names.
“Me and him got called KKK, Nazi, and we just kept getting bullied the whole day,” said Newberry.
Newberry said it wasn’t until his second-period teacher showed them a news clip of NFL players kneeling that he realized the present controversy surrounding the flag.
The teacher made a poll on paper and passed it out to all the students to see what they thought was right or wrong about taking a knee. The teacher even told students that she would never stand for the Pledge of Allegiance and that if she did stand she would not really mean it.
A spokesperson for Spalding School District tells CBS46 the assignment was supposed to be a lesson on First Amendment Rights, but they wouldn’t say if the teacher was disciplined for her comments.
In a letter sent home to parents Wednesday, the teacher wrote the following:
I apologize for expressing my views to my students. I recognize that while this was not a one-sided lesson, the topic itself and the expression of my views were not appropriate, my intentions were well-meaning.
Parents say they plan to stand with their children Thursday morning in front of the school’s flagpole when the National Anthem is recited over the loudspeaker. –CBS46
