FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WOWO): A Fort Wayne man is accusing his sons 8th-grade Spanish teacher of pushing a political agenda on students.
In a WOWO Exclusive, Todd Hein tells us his son was shamed, bullied, and given an extra assignment by his teacher, Sarah Ford, at Blackhawk Middle School, after he cited Fox News as his source for an assignment.
She decided to walk up to him and in front of everybody, told him Fox News is fake news, its full of lies and gave him a new assignment, to look up any of the many lies Donald Trump has told as President of the United States, and do a full page report on that, Hein says.
Hein says he doesnt care what the teachers political views are, as long as theyre not forced upon students:
They dont need to listen to that in a Spanish class, of all things. I mean theres no other word to describe it. She bullied our son over Fox News.
He adds he had a 36-minute meeting with the schools principal in which Ford admitted to the allegations. However, the district tells Hein theyve finished their investigation into the matter, but wont say what their ruling is:
They said shed be the only person who knew the outcome unless she was terminated, then it would be presented to the board and it would become a public record, Hein says.
We reached out to FWCS spokeswoman Krista Stockman for comment. She provided the following statement:
Fort Wayne Community Schools does not condone the kind of behavior detailed by this parent. When we were notified, we immediately investigated and took appropriate action. Because this is a personnel matter, I cannot provide details of the outcome of the investigation.
I normally don’t advocate going this route, but time for a lawsuit against the district, the school and the teacher.
A BIG one!
These people will never learn if you don’t hit them in the nose with a newspaper with a hearty “NO! BAD!”
Since they are public employees, there should not be any ‘privacy, personnel’ matters when it concerns their work on the job, ie, on MY DIME..................
Why are they discussing Trump in Spanish class anyway?
Why else??? Indoctrination....
They were discussing a citation for a class assignment.
The teacher made it about Trump. For no reason, apparently.
My understanding is as a public employee her disciplinary record can be accessed thru FOIA
I would assume she would provide the Student with the Trump “list of lies” so he could respond to the accusations.
I know, I’m just having a silly moment.
Doesn’t that vary from state to state?...............
I had one bitching to me about fox news like it was the devil. She didn’t watch it and neither do I. WTF is wrong with these people? It’s best to just not even talk to them at all. Rabid, foaming at the mouth leftists. They should not be “teaching” or in any other positions of power over people. They do nothing but abuse it.
I’m curious to know if Spanish textbooks have moved from the classical language taught 40+ years ago to a mangled Mexican dialect?
“Im curious to know if Spanish textbooks have moved from the classical language taught 40+ years ago to a mangled Mexican dialect?”
A number of years ago I was casually talking with a Central American lady in the course of business and remarked how it might have helped my Spanish while I was in college if I’d spent a summer in Mexico. She replied, saying the Mexican version of the language was horribly mangled and the place to go was somewhere in central or South America, where it was properly spoken.
To be politically correct:
1. We should object to Sarah Ford. She has the surname of both an evil Republican president, and an evil capitalist.
2. We should object to Blackhawk Middle School. Isn’t that cultural appropriation, to name a school after an Indian tribe?????
"14th Amendment, Section 1: All persons born or naturalized in the United States and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States [emphasis added]; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.
"14th Amendment, Section 5: The Congress shall have power to enforce, by appropriate legislation, the provisions of this article."
H O W E V E R
Parents also need to know that knowing their 14th Amendment protections isnt enough.
More specifically, were still stuck with a corrupt, post-17th Amendment (17A) ratification Congress left over from the lawless Obama Administration that will predictably not lift a finger to exercise its 14A powers to make punitive laws to discourage state actors from abridging constitutionally enumerated protections.
Patriots need to finish the job that they started when they elected Trump president.
More specifically, patriots now need to be making sure that there are plenty of Trump-supporting patriot candidates on the 2018 primary ballots, candidates who will be willing to make punitive laws to discourage abridgment of constitutionally enumerated rights by state actors.
Patriots must then pink-slip career lawmakers by sending patriot candidate lawmakers to DC on election day so that they can start making such laws.
And until the states wake up and repeal 17A, as evidenced by concerns about the integrity of the outcome of Alabama's and Pennsylvania's special elections, patriot candidates need to win elections by a large enough margin to compensate for possible deep state ballot box fraud, associated MSM scare tactics, and interference from people like Soros.
The snobbery of Spaniards and South Americans toward Mexican Spanish is reminiscent of British and Commonwealth snobbery toward our version of English. I have no use for uppity Brits, and I am sure the Mexicans feel the same about their Iberian and South American counterparts.
A practical solution - fire the teacher, AND fire whoever hired the teacher.
Get a big settlement AND require the school system to pay for his private school tuition through high school graduation. They would really hate that.
I’m not so sure about that. Salary is public knowledge.
I remember a time when people weren’t constantly obsessed with politics.
It was nice.
