Teacher Ridicules Student for Romney T-Shirt

Teacher Ridicules Student for Romney T-Shirt [Pic of Student With T-Shirt In URL] By Lee Brodie

Many Republicans can't help but wonder if a student wearing a pro-Obama T-Shirt in a Philadelphia school would have been subject to the kind of humiliation that Samantha Pawlucy was forced to endure.

The 16-year old sophomore, who attends Charles Carroll High School, told CNC's Larry Kudlow, that she was humiliated by a teacher for wearing a T-shirt in support of Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan. She said the teacher compared her to the worst racists in history -- the Ku Klux Klan. "It was really embarrassing, and I think she did it because she's against Mitt Romney," Samantha said. "I was really nervous," she added, "and I was worried that after class, people were going to come up to me and say something."

Events unfolded last Friday. Nothing out of the ordinary happened until the student arrived at her geometry class -- before that time the shirt didn't raise any objections. However, the offending teacher saw the Romney / Ryan shirt "and told me to get out of the classroom, I said no," Samantha explained on "The Kudlow Report." (Read More Below the Video.)

I did not receive much different treatment when I was that lad’s age and had the temerity to wear a Reagan button to school.

(I was not even particularly conservative at 16, I just knew that Jimmy Carter SUCKED!)

Lefties get away with anything. Just look at how Democrats can campaign in black churches, and nobody says a word, but the group that claims to be for separation of church and state sends out threats to conservative churches that are just handing out voter guides.

When our daughter and SIL lived in Baltimore in 2008, the poll workers were wearing Obama buttons and shirts. So much for the rules.

I had “Nixon Now” bumper stickers plastered all over my notebooks and homemade book covers. Although looking back at where I grew up I was pretty safe.

Most schools forbid activity or they used to regarding races. However in this case, this teacher went way over the line and should be fired.

Sounds like what happened to my now 11 year old NEPHEW when his 3rd grade teacher told the class to make sure your parents votes for BARRY.

My Nephew (his mom and dad are both GOP members of the town (my brother is on the town council, sister in law on the Zoning board.)) told her that his parents are smart and voting for McCain an American HERO..

The teacher threatened to suspend him, so he said good then I can help elect McCain, so he was severed with a week in school suspension.

Now he is HOME-SCHOOLED and he is helping Romney!!

I wore the Goldwater (AUH2O) pin every day in High School when I was 16 with no problem.

Shows you how times and the government school systems have changed.

Called and left very strong message. The left and the GLBT, and NARAL crowd has been doing this for years and we must now adopt the same tactics of protest and take the tine to call and express our indignation. Thanks for providing us all the info. We need more people like wtc911

"Has anyone reported the name of this teacher?"

The "teacher" is supposedly Lynette Gaymon. She is listed on the school website as:

"Lynette Gaymon -- Student Teacher - Math"

With no link to a photo.

A Google Images search for "teacher Lynette Gaymon" returns a small photo of a young black woman holding up her phone to take a self portrait -- but the original is blocked from hot-linking. So--- I put a screen grab up in accessible webspace:

No matter how "urban" the practice teaching school or the college she attends, no "student teacher" should receive her teaching certificate with an offense like this on her student teaching record!

The "Student Teacher" title means she is not really employed as a teacher, but is only there doing her "internship" for the completion of a degree in education leading to a teaching certificate.

Any college or university worth its name should consider this a "FAIL" on that critical part of her coursework.

But, then, there are many, many liberal so-called "education" schools that are not worthy of the name... :-(

This ‘teacher’ should never be allowed in a school again.
