We are living in a time where actual education is not a requisite. Instead of teaching kids their ABC’s and 123s, teachers are going ahead and teaching the kids what they feel is right. Teachers, especially younger ones, feel it is their responsibility to push their ideals, political or otherwise, on their students. Elementary, Middle, and high school teachers think their class has the same rules as the crazy college campus they graduated from. They need to stick to the basics and teach the subjects they are getting paid for.
Over a week ago a California High school teacher had her students pledge allegiance to the Pride flag. She mentioned the American Flag made her uncomfortable. This is the country that she lives in, this is the country where she was raised and most likely lived a pretty safe life, this is the country where she can voice her opinion (no matter how stupid it may be) and not get taken away in a black van never to be heard from again.
Well, it seems the Gods are smiling since her posting on TikTok. Her posting has caused quite a storm on social media with sane parents calling for her resignation. The Newport Mesa School District said the incident is under investigation, but would not provide details, as it does not “discuss employee-related matters…We are aware of this incident and are investigating. While we do not discuss employee-related matters, we can tell you that showing respect and honor for our nation’s flag is a value that we instill in our students and an expectation of our employees. We take matters like this seriously and will be taking action to address it,” said public relations officer for the district, Annette Franco.
