Want to Improve Education?
If you want to improve education a good place to start would be firing the school administrators in the next two stories:
Administrators at a California high school sent five students home on Wednesday after they refused to remove their American flag T-shirts and bandannas — garments the school officials deemed “incendiary” on Cinco de Mayo.Tee shirts with the image of a murderous communist named Che are fine, but ones with the United States Flag are not. Good enough reason to fire a principal to me.
The five teens were sitting at a table outside Live Oak High School in Morgan Hill, Calif., on Wednesday morning when Assistant Principal Miguel Rodriguez asked two of them to remove their American flag bandannas, the Morgan Hill Times reported. The boys told the newspaper they complied, but were asked to accompany Rodriguez to the principal’s office.
The five students — Daniel Galli, Austin Carvalho, Matt Dariano, Dominic Maciel and Clayton Howard — were then told they must turn their T-shirts inside-out or be sent home, though it would not be considered a suspension. Rodriguez told the students he did not want any fights to break out between Mexican-American students celebrating their heritage and those wearing American flags.
“They said we were starting a fight,” Dariano told the newspaper. “We were fuel to the fire.”
An Ann Arbor elementary school principal used a letter home to parents tonight to defend a field trip for black students as part of his school’s efforts to close the achievement gap between white and black students.Hey, dummy! Deciding which children get to go on a field trip based on race is well . . . RACIST!
Dicken Elementary School Principal Mike Madison wrote the letter to parents following several days of controversy at the school after a field trip last week in which black students got to hear a rocket scientist.
Teaching and running a school system are not easy jobs and I'm not usually comfortable calling for someone to lose their job. However, these folks have proven they are not qualified to be trusted to develop young impressionable students.
