Posted on 11/15/2011 2:38:32 PM PST by Aintgonnajumpnomore
Please take a moment to vote in the following poll:
"Do you agree with the judge who ruled in favor of the school district in the case in which two administrators sent four students home for wearing American-themed clothing in Cinco de Mayo?"
This stems from a 2009 incident where 5 boys in our community wore US flag shirts to school on Cinco de Mayo, and were sent home by the principal and VP for doing so. Students wearing the colors of the Mexican flag were allowed to remain in school.
The following day, about 200 hispanic kids marched out of school "for respect" waving Mexican flags down the street as they went.
To this day, only the boys who wore US flag apparel have been punished. The school district, and everyone who wants to represent their Mexican pride by walking out of school in protest, suffered no consequences
The poll will appear on the left-hand side of the webpage when it loads.
thank you for you consideration. We need help in California.
It’s working again. We might have broken it, momentarily.
The “No’s” are now at 70%.
Thanks everybody. You guys are great.
This isn’t an issue with the school OR the administration. It is an issue of the PARENTS who quietly accept this kind of crap from school administrators who are typically paid six figures to generate “policies” that excuse them from having to do their jobs.
As long as the parents allow school administrators to flash a “policy” in front of them without a whimper, NOTHING will change. PARENTS need to develop their own “policy” that starts out with they don’t accept school “policies” that excuse administrators for being stupid, lazy, incompetent and overpaid!!
There was a time when school administrators actually had to earn their salaries by dealing with students one-on-one on a case-by-case basis. Now, they just whip out a policy so that they don’t have to deal directly with the students OR their parents. Imagine the expression on an administrator’s face when he thrusts policy under some parent’s nose, and the parent thrusts one back that rejects his policy!!
THAT, my FRiends, would be PRICELESS!!!
I will try again.
No - 74%
Voted. 70+% saying no.
Ooops - make that 73%
Why they did it is irrelevant.
They have a right too. The First Amendment doesn’t just protect illegals - it’s meant for all of us.
I could kind of see a point if this symbol truly could be considered threatening. But it was an American flag shirt.
Also one of the theories of public education was that everyone would learn to get along even though there is a wide array of opinions.
And it’s a complete mystery to roughly half this country why we’re going down the drain. :(
No = 76%
Ridiculous school admin and doubly ridiculous judge.
Well of course we don’t agree with it.
** Instead of punishing the Mexican Bullies - they went after the poor kid who supported their nation.
I am disgusted
What I get from this ruling is that the judge ruled in favor of the school penalizing these students because the judge realizes that the school administration cannot protect these students from a bunch of illegal immigration thugs.
Which makes me wonder why any American parent, after hearing or reading about the judge’s ruling, would willingly send their kids to this particular school.
Cyberschools are opening up all over the country. Several are opening in my state next year as charters. Students can learn in the privacy of their own homes. In the future, no one will have to send their kids to a school whose administration is so clueless or gutless they can’t or won’t protect AMERICAN students (for whatever reason) from illegal immigration Mexican thugs!
When I showed this story to my husband (born in Mexico but a proud naturalized American citizen) he was so frustrated with the administration and the students who marched out of the school. He says they just don’t get it. If they are so devoted to Mexico they should go back there permanently. He would never return, loves it here.
Gay judge’s same-sex marriage ruling upheld
AP ^ | 6/15/2011 | Lisa Leff
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — A federal judge has a message for those trying to salvage California’s gay marriage ban: Sure, the judge who threw out the measure last year is in a long-term relationship with a man, but he could still be fair to them. Chief U.S. District Court Judge James Ware’s ruling Tuesday rejected arguments that former Chief Judge Vaughn Walker would potentially benefit from declaring the ban unconstitutional. In his 19-page decision - a response to the first attempt in the nation to disqualify a judge based on sexual orientation - Ware had a bigger message.
