    High school teacher 'refused to grade students' assignments because... mentioned guns

    Real Title: High school teacher 'refused to mark students' assignments because they mentioned guns'
    Daily Mail (yes, we now have to go to the UK for real/balanced news-how things have changed)

    ....Marshall Williams and Alex Wright, seniors at Denton High School in Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas, said the teacher, Dewey Christian, set an assignment to write a report about anything they wanted.

    Williams referenced a trip he had taken to the Fort Worth gun show, while Wright recounted a hunting trip, but both said the papers did not describe shooting guns.

    ....Both boys were told they would get a zero on the assignment because of the topic and were reprimanded in front of their peers, the news channel reported.

    That teacher got off easy. "I'm sorry you misunderstood the message I was trying to make" is not an apology. How about "I'm sorry for letting my personal bias against guns affect my job as a teacher" and "I was wrong for censuring the students the way I did". The Teacher should be forced to apologize then move to California...

    I wonder if they had written about going to a church event, or a political rally, or anything else specifically called out as protected in the Constitution, if he would have reacted the same way. I'm thinking no (although maybe on the church thing).

    I'd be one of those parents showing up at the school board meeting and county board of supervisors meeting expressing my disgust over this. This country is going insane.

    Wow. What ever happened to teachers actually teaching their subject matter rather than giving political commentary? Today's public school system needs a complete overhaul (which I know will never happen). If I had school age kids now I would work two jobs if I had to so that I could send them to a good private school.

    Guns are the modern day witches and these teachers are the witch hunters. Instead of promoting the first and second amendment to our Constitution, which by the way for all you witch hunters is the supreme law of our Country, you join the witch hunt and attemt to denegrade what countless men and women have fought and died to preserve, protect and defend. Shame on you, you have earned a one way ticket to............North Korea. when you take this position you spit in the face of all that is sacred and in the face of all the men and women in our armed forces who risk their lives so that same Constitution can give you the right to say and do, what you say and do. If you take this position you are a disgrace to our Country and do not deserve to breath the same free air. ps, I'll help you pack your stuff and buy the ticket.

    Denton? I bet there is more to the story than the topic. Wish we could hear the teacher's side of this.

    Well, I did hear quite a bit of the teacher's side of the story in the video the mom took while speaking to him...

    When-Ever I hear a talkin' head media person and especially any politician say: “this isn’t my opinion …. it’s the will of the people!”

    My 12-yr-old son has riflery as part of his P.E. curriculum. And his teacher regularly discusses the 2nd Amendment and related current events. He is homeschooled. Every day the news media produces stories that affirm our school choice.
