Outraged over a teacher's alleged negative comments in class about President Obama has parents at Delcambre Elementary fighting back. The day after election day, Lindsey Shello's son told her his fourth grade teacher wore all black to school. He said the teacher told class she was attending America's funeral, because Barrack Obama was re-elected president.
"She made the comment that since Michelle Obama is first lady and with the meal plan she has, the kids are gonna look like toothpicks in a few months," said Shello.
Shello says the teacher also told the class, the US would become the new China because of Obama. Shocked at what her son told her, Shello posted her feelings on Facebook. This mother says the teacher wrote her a message saying she'd like to have a conversation with her and she shouldn't believe everything her 9-year-old son tells her.
"Her personal opinion needs to remain her personal opinion. She doesn't need to push it on the kids," said Shello.
Chassatey Jackson says her two children also told her the same story. Jackson doesn't think teachers should express their political beliefs in class.
"They want to believe everything their teacher says and if my kid hears the teacher say the sky is black, he's going to believe the sky is black because his teacher said it," said Jackson.
These parents want answers. They've reached out to the school board and Delcambre Elementary principal. We reached out as well, we were told Delcambe Elementary's principal was not in today.And the school board said the matter is under investigation.
"I think an apology is owed, but it's not owed from the school board," said Shello's mother Liz Shello-Walton.
We reached out to Louisiana Association of Educators to see if what these parents and students claim the teacher did is out of line? Executive Director Dr. Michael Walker-Jones says he would need to look at the case closely before giving the teacher a critique.
I actually agree - teachers should keep their personal political beliefs (left and right) out of the classroom.
What a joke. Kids in public school are bombarded DAILY with pro-liberal rants. So every once in a while, a non-moron speaks up, and people are outraged? Please, suck it
“They want to believe everything their teacher says and if my kid hears the teacher say the sky is black, he’s going to believe the sky is black because his teacher said it,” said Jackson.”
Poor kid. Is he an idiot?
It’s OK that the hero worship of a Marxist President and constant drumbeat of socialism transform the poor kids, though.
I wonder what the teachers FR name is....
The Eleventh Commandment: Thou shalt not criticize Dear Leader.
“I actually agree - teachers should keep their personal political beliefs (left and right) out of the classroom.”
The left won’t but we’ll be nice and politely step aside.
Chassatey? What kind of fricking name is that? Is it suppose to be Chastity?
It’s a time honored dictum - “no religion or politics”, even among adults. I had a few frank exchanges with my well known cohorts at lunch, at work, previous to the election, but when the election was over, the discussion was over. I guess from their point of view they’re letting me off easy!
“The danger to America is not Barack Obama, but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president.
The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America. Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince.
The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools, such as those who made him their president.”
This quote came from the Czech Republic. Someone over there has it figured out. It was translated into English from an article in the Prague newspaper
“Chassatey? What kind of fricking name is that? Is it suppose to be Chastity?”
Not too many chaste Obama supporters.
“She made the comment that since Michelle Obama is first lady and with the meal plan she has, the kids are gonna look like toothpicks in a few months,”
Ha! I’m sorry, but that’s pretty danged funny.
I do agree, though, that the teacher should have kept her personal feelings out of the classroom. I don’t doubt some of these “upset” parents wouldn’t be so upset if the teacher had come in black mourning a Romney victory. Nor am I naive enough to ignore the liberal views being pushed on kids in many public schools. Still, it wasn’t the right way for the teacher to deal with it.
That’s why the Czech Republic is on my short list of SHTF destinations.
HEY! It’s “chastity” by another name, ok? It’s freedom of naming, if you value freedom. To me, it’s clear cut.
I’m sure the Leftists would want her arrested.
