Apparently, in the City of Brotherly Love, geometry teachers easily confuse this
Racism has again raised its ugly head in this presidential election and it has filtered all the way down to the classroom level where, in Philadelphia, a high school student was threatened with assault by her geometry teacher last Friday for wearing a Mitt Romney t-shirt.
According to the Philadelphia Inquirer, last Friday was dress-down day for students at Charles Carroll High School in Port Richmond. One female student decided that she would show her support for Republican presidential candidate a Mitt Romney by wearing a Romney t-shirt.
Thats when things turned ugly for her in the Democratic school.
The teacher allegedly told the girl to take off the shirt, saying it was like wearing a Ku Klux Klan sheet. The teacher allegedly threatened to use a marker to cross out Romneys name and that of Rep. Paul Ryan, his running mate. The teacher also allegedly tried to throw the student out of class.
The teacher also allegedly said that Carroll was a Democratic school.[Emphasis added.]
The Inquirer reports that an investigation is going on.
Philadelphia School District spokesman Fernando Gallard confirmed that last Friday at Carroll, 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. We are looking into the comments, and the conduct of the teacher.
It appears (based on a review of the schools website) that the offending teacher is likely to be a male. However, given that Philadelphia teachers are represented by the American Federation of Teachers, it is doubtful that anything more than a hand-slap will be issued to the teacher.
This so-called teacher need to be fired. I don't care what it takes, the teachers union cannot protect this POS.
absolutely true...she needs to go now..
The last paragraph states the teacher is “likely to be a male.”
These Amish teachers can be so hard to get along with.
They said it was “likely” a male. If that’s the case the Father should get involved and say, “if you ever get within 10 feet of my daughter again, I’ll kick your ass so hard you’ll have to do a hand stand to go #2”!
We have some dangerous people “nurturing” our children and “shaping” their attitudes. Little wonder we have a generation that thinks Obama should be President because he is “cool.” They are TAUGHT that stuff. Obama is the result if such teaching.
the student should have given the geometry teacher a history lesson and reminded him/her that the KKK were/are southern dimocrats, i.e. Robert “Sheets” Byrd
Nice shirt, but I’m getting “We’re all mad here!” from ThinkGeek.com.
I agree, the teacher should be fired.
If we started tomorrow, it will take two generations, at least, to sweep these vermin and the damage they have done to our young out of the “schools”. The quickest and best way is to eliminate “public” education (which has become mostly pubic and political education) and replace it with a voucher system. Granted many of the new education mills would still represent the values of an ignorant population but at least some of the enlightened would be able to move their off springs into learning centers away from the commie socialist education camps we have now.
I smell a red herring
If a male teacher told a female student to remove her shirt perhaps it’s not a political matter.
The schoolyard punks seem to have taken postions as teachers.
I know a few Arizona Mom's that could do that to an offender no matter what the offenders Gender.
Imagine if their ethnicities and party identifications were reversed and a teacher screamed personal insults at the student, threatened to write on her clothes and told her to take her clothes off.
That teacher would be in custody right now awaiting a bail hearing and possible federal charges for civil rights violations and, if she were 18, voter intimidation.
By the way, the school website lists two mathematics teachers: a Mr. Lee and a Mr. Ould-Babaali.
Can’t speak to the student body, but the school is located in a 94% white area.
The debate in a nutshell:
Chairman Obama: It's simple math...arithmetic..
Mitt Romney: Limit(n -> infinity, Sigma(i = 1 to n, i^2 / n))
Chairman Obama: Umm...yeah...what he said.
As a parent, I would request a parent teacher meeting over this incident.
The teacher and I might go for a walk in which I might make insinuations about being careful not to trip when we walked down the stairs.
The gentle side of teaching tolerance and open-mindedness.
Let the teacher stay, fire the entire school system and give the kids vouchers.
Public school is child abuse.
If the teacher isn’t removed, have a protective order issued.
I think it is safe to say thay teacher doesn’t know a right angle from an obtuse triangle.
The teacher is an obvious bigot, and has no business teaching kids if he/she cannot keep their politics out of the classroom.
I believe the most severe punishment we will see here is a transfer to another school, since the melanin content in him/her will partially protect him/her
The girl had copurage to wear a Romney T-shirt in a Democrat (read majority black) school,but it might not have been a good idea, since now she is about as safe there as a Catholic in Egypt.
“Not MY public school, MINE’s different”
Flat out sexual harrassment and child abuse.
The teacher also allegedly said that Carroll was a Democrat
DUH! They're all blatant RATaganda indoctrination centers.
the offending teacher is likely to be a male...saying it was like wearing a Ku Klux Klan sheet.
(Regardless) Look bitch; The Klan is a RAT terrorist organization.
The comments were of a political nature, and also of a personal nature. We are looking into the comments, and the conduct of the teacher....This so-called teacher need to be fired.
They need to be "looking into the conduct" of this violent pervert whack-job AFTER he is fired and arrested.
you touch my daughter, you will be removed.! there is no place in education for politics.
yeah and obama wants to hire a zillion more like this one
Well, that rules out a female teacher.
From the NBC website:
"She told me to take off my shirt and said that she has another one if I need one.
Well, maybe it is a gender confused male, or a substitute as the school lists two male math teachers, according to another poster (which is probably where this article came up with their conclusion).
So, we’re going to see this girl invited to all the Morning new shows? /sarc
How about a picture of the “teacher” all over the news? Nope.
“Yeah, and Obama wants to hire a zillion more like this one.”
Maybe. But it seems that Mr. Obama can’t count to a zillion because he can’t comprehend what a trillion is.
I totally agree, this teacher should be fired
The other day the Secretary of Defense reported to the President that a Brazilian had been killed in Afghanistan. Saddened and bewildered, the President asked him "How many is a brazillion?"
Does the school list any female math teachers???
This teacher will be protected, and the student expelled.
Honestly, that is what will happen. If I was the Dad, I would be suing right now. The name of the teacher will not be released, but you can own a chunk of the school district.
Most likely a smash mouth gay guy being overly fabulous.
Get your history straight. Democrat — yes. Southern? Only because of revisionist history. “ By 1926 the Klan was “crippled and discredited.” D. C. Stephenson was the Grand Dragon of Indiana and 22 northern states. In 1923 he had led the states under his control to separate from the national KKK organization.”
At least the post-War Between the States Klan came into existence for understandable reasons — to stop the rape of white women, non-prosecution of crimes by blacks against whites, and wholesale suppression of human rights. Southerners had become worse off than slaves, which forever obliterated the nonsense that the war was a noble crusade to free black people. The klan as a racist organization came later and was as warmly embraced by whites in the north and those in the south.
Philadelphia School District spokesman Fernando Gallard is obviously a former English teecher (sic) (a teacher made some comments to a student wearing a Romney t-shirt in their classroom.”) Was the teecher (sic) the renowned mathematician Mohamed Ould-Babaali?
It *was* on last night’s news.... BULLYING comes to mind.
Back in the 1950s, the joke going around was that there were more communists teaching at Princeton University than there were teaching in Moscow. Some things never change!
This Colorado mom could do so as well. Fortunately DH and I have raised daughter well, and she is quite capable of administering her own butt kicking - with pointe shoes on of course!
She’s one of Obama’s brownshirts. Enforcing allegiance to the Dear Reader by lying.
Socialists like leopards don’t change their spots. `George Orwell’ wrote that in the `30s while fighting in Spain the socialists came to apply the word `fascist’ to anything they found disagreeable, e.g. “That fascist waiter watered our drinks.”
So she doesn’t really believe that the t-shirt was rascist. This teacher just found it disagreeable, so she did violence to an important word, particularly if she is (as I suspect) one of Holder’s people. And Obama said last night that we need more of these creatures.
