Doesn't really matter if the president is Democrat or Republican...Public schools and their union minions will indoctrinate into the Liberal psyche anyway...

Teacher under fire for slipping anti-Trump question into homework



Quote:
Fill in the blank: This teacher is _______!

A Staten Island educator slipped in an anti-President Trump question on a middle school homework assignment — and then defended it to outraged parents as freedom of speech.

Annadale dad Vincent Ungro was furious when his 11-year-old daughter, who attends IS 75, asked him to help her with her vocabulary homework last Friday night.

She was having a hard time filling in the blanks from a word bank for question No. 8.

“President Trump speaks in a very superior and _________ manner insulting many people. He needs to be more __________ so that the American people respect and admire him.”

The question after that read: “Barack Obama set a _________ when he became the first African American president.”

Ungro, 46, told his kid not to answer the two questions — which were supposed to be completed with the words haughty, humble and precedent — and wrote a pointed note back to her teacher, Adria Zawatsky.

“Please keep your political views to yourself and do not try to influence my children on them. Thank you,” he wrote.

Zawatsky took 15 points off for the three blank answers, giving Ungro’s daughter an 85 – which he blasted as “vindictive.”

“This woman is forcing my child to put words on a piece of paper describing our president in a disparaging manner,” Ungro told The Post Thursday. “Her political opinion should be left at home.”

On Monday, the dad of four, whose 12-year-old son also goes to the school, got an email from Zawatsky — but it wasn’t the apology he was looking for.

“Firstly, I do not believe I was expressing a political view at all on my vocabulary sheet. My reference to President Trump was about his personality traits rather than his ability as a president,” the teacher wrote.

“The media is nonstop on very similar references. This is considered freedom of speech and I feel I have the same right as they do.”

The teacher needs to eat caca, bark at the moon, and go to hell.

The teacher got caught. Taking 15 points off was very childish. Good job Dad.

Are you saying the question was wrong or that we should ignore Trumps mannerisms and pretend he doesn't talk this way ?

Neither, Mikeyy. At least read the title before babbling. Teacher under fire.

How exactly? Trump trash talks anyone he opposes at the moment. We all know he does. It's common knowledge.
