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.
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???
