Late Night: Teach Your Children Well

photo: shonk/creative commons

An Alabama moran [sic] of a geometry teacher used the example of assassinating President Barack Obama as a way to teach angles to his geometry students.

At first all the school superintendent Phil Hammonds said was that the teacher would be getting a talking to after someone alerted the Secret Service. (After an interview with the Secret Service, the teacher was not deemed a credible threat).

But many, many phone calls from concerned citizens prompted Hammonds to put the math teacher on leave. Weirdly, one parent called the lesson in bullet trajectory against the standing President to be “inappropriate” but the teacher’s “own opinion” and the teacher should not be fired:

We all make mistakes, and we should be able to learn from our mistakes. What he said was just wrong and inappropriate. Everyone’s got their own opinions, but we have to be aware of our surroundings. At this point, it just needs to be handled in a way that it won’t be repeated.

“We need to be aware of our surroundings.”  Okay, that sounds just creepy.

Meanwhile a group calling themselves Public Advocate of the U.S., which “lobbies to fight the radical agenda of the Homosexual Lobby” sent out a hysterical email screaming about H.R. 4530,  the Student Non-Discrimination Act, introduced by Colorado representative Jared Polis which Public Advocate claims is

a bill to turn America’s schools into indoctrination centers … its classrooms into social laboratories … its playgrounds into homosexual breeding grounds.

[Those are Public Advocate's ellipses, and rather a frothy use of the triple dots.]

Isn’t the homo-haters’ argument that gays can’t breed and that’s why they shouldn’t be allowed to marry? So how the heck are they breeding on playgrounds?

Okay, so wait: Some parents think it’s okay for their kids to get indoctrinated into the idea of presidential assassinations via geometry, because it’s really the gays and their radical agenda who are the problem?

Bonus: Ask me about my call to the Secret Service and why!

Math teacher gives them a geometry lesson and then the Secret Service gives them a civics lesson. Not a bad day overall.

I suspect he had to change his drawers, but I doubt that the lesson will stick. Folks that would do this in the first place seem not to be real big on learning from their mistakes.

Free speech ends at murder doesn’t it? Certainly kids should be protected from this stuff Sex ed, Evolution, global warming are all bad but killing the President as a math lesson doesn’t get you fired on the spot?

Yeah, the whole

but we have to be aware of our surroundings.

is very creepy. What that says to me is, ‘sure we all joke about killing Obama but not in front of the black kids who might tell.’

This teacher should not be in a classroom. Were my kid in his, it would be the last day of that nonsense.


ratfood | Tuesday May 18, 2010 08:30 pm 25

I recall about ten years ago reading in the paper that a first grader had been arrested for pointing a chicken drumstick at a classmate and saying, “Bang!”

I don’t know what happened to the kid. I assume the chicken was released on bail since it did not pose flight risk.

Spending money on schools is like buying good feed for cows. Why bother to raise them if you won’t feed them.
The more smart people you have the better the odds you produce a genius. I wonder how many Bill Gates, Warren Buffets etc the Alabama school system killed off with moldy hay/bad schools.
The more geniuses you have the better your economy.

Thailand is one of those probusiness countries Steve Forbes and the free market types loved. It seems they are all in trouble now.

Sad…! Just more continued brutality and suppression in the long suffering S.E Asian human right’s issues, the regimes impose upon the masses…!

It’s not gonna be pretty… if the Guv is too brutal in their suppression, they’ll be dealing with an even larger mass of humanity later…! 8-(

To the Karen, they were deities. To the Thais, they were demons. But when they staggered down from the mountains of Burma at dusk last Tuesday, Johnny and Luther Htoo brought neither miracles nor M-16s, just Bibles in their rucksacks. The tiny teenage twins, leaders of the mysterious rebel force known as God’s Army, approached a company of Thai soldiers and asked for sanctuary. Whisked to a police compound in the nearby town of Suan Pheung, they soon found themselves exchanging bewildered stares with Prime Minister Chuan Leekpai and a dozen of Thailand’s top generals

Wow, thank you, Lisa.
As far as I can tell, our Public Educational System is shifting into a more aggressive approach to raising fodder for the War Machine. Dumb ‘em down, pump ‘em up.
But, I might just be a rebel homeschool mom.

Let’s suppose the teacher used the Columbine massacre or a Mexican druglord shootout to teach his geometry. Do you think he would have received more than a talking to? This guy can’t be bounced hard enough.
