Student Banned by Teacher in California for Drawing a Flag, Was “God Bless America” Offensive … And Holy Jolly Rancher Batman
Once again we are witness to liberal insanity from California.
A teacher said that the students could draw anything they wanted to and then the following ensued. A 7th grade student in California was told by a teacher that her drawing of the American flag was offensive. However, the picture of Barack Obama was beautiful.
Offensive? What Say You America?
The 13-year-old’s mother, Tracy Hathaway said she doesn’t know why the Gavilan Middle School teacher called the drawing offensive because she won’t tell the family what’s wrong with the picture. Hathaway wants to know why the teacher praised another student for drawing a picture of President Barack Obama.
As the mother stated, the one thing that brings our country together and unites us as the American flag does was offensive; however, Barack Obama who people disagree with and is divisive was okay with the teacher.
The school looked inot the incident and wanted the teacher to apologize as what she did was over the line.
So maybe the question needs to be asked of the teacher, what part of the drawing was offensive, the America flag or the “God Bless America”. In either case, this is rather troubling as one again we see what teaches our children.
UPDATE I: Of wait, more brilliance from our educational system as a third grader in Texas was suspended and sent home for a week for possessing a contraband substance. Was it a weapon, fire works, knife, drugs? NOPE A JOLLY RANCHER! That id correct America. A piece of candy got a third grader a week of detention because the school is playing Nanny state.
The superintendent for the Brazos Independent School District also claims the district is simply following state guidelines to limit the amount of junk food in schools.
“Whether or not I agree with the guidelines, we have to follow the rules,” Superintendent Jack Ellis told KHOU-TV in Houston.
But state guidelines for punishing students with junk food don’t even exist, Texas Department of Agriculture spokesperson Bryan Black said.
“Our policy does not prohibit from sharing a Jolly Rancher with a friend,” Black told FOXNews.com. “If a parent wants to pack candy, it’s their decision, not against school policy. A parent needs to decide what a student eats.”
I think we are beginning to see why maybe Mexican-Americans found it so offensive for individuals to wear American flag colored clothing last week on Cino de Mayo. They are taking the lead from liberal, intolerant disrespectful adult teacher.
What is teaching the children today?
