Perhaps teachers ought to focus on teaching.

Just a thought.

These kids are most likely telling the truth. I retired from teaching in GA in 2009, and I vividly recall the atmosphere in the school and the things some of the teachers said after BO won the presidential election in 2008. Teachers I thought I'd had a decent relationship with showed obvious disdain toward myself and the other black teachers and any white teacher who had voted for BO. My own co-teacher took a couple days off after the election. Now, these are people who walked around and talked about how Christian they were. BO's election brought out the real ugliness that resides within them. Some of the black students confided in me that one teacher, who also claimed to be a youth minister, had made his displeasure about BO winning the election known by making disparaging comments about him in front of the entire class. Except for a few white employees who voted for BO, the others behaved as if the world had come to an end, even the lunchroom ladies. When the president made his yearly address to the nation's students in 2009, the students were not allowed to view the video because parents acted like jackasses and started screaming about "indoctrination."

If the stories are accurate she's an idiot, and her union should defend her to the best of their ability in any disciplinary action. That's what they're supposed to do.

I'm actually a bit surprised over this story.

The school in question is located in (or very near) to Lafayette, which is square in the middle of Acadiana (aka Cajun country). The folks there tend to be a LOT more laid-back politically than the majority of the deep South, and is probably one of the most ethnically-diverse regions in the United States.

If it had taken place in the northern half of the state, it would have been no shock whatsoever to me, since I grew up in that area. I actually had a high school teacher (a CIVICS teacher, to boot) flat out state that the two worst things that the United States ever did was emancipation and granting women the right to vote. This was the late 1970s - years after the enactment of the Civil and Voting Rights Acts.
