Don't you just love the Texas educational system?

Still, I do have to give them props for actually doing something about the idiocy of a teacher for once instead of actively encouraging it.

At the teacher training institution I applied for they had some trick questions to weed out bigots during the interviews. Perhaps they should have tried that when they hired this moron

Quote by biga29


And the teacher probably did it as a joke. Seriously? Crying because he said that? Get over it. Not worthy of news...


1. You're a teacher, you don't get to make jokes like that to students.
2. She cried because she has probably been getting shit for being Muslim from people besides the teacher.

This really pisses me off. Why just suspended? He linked an innocent girl to one of the most horrible people of the 20th century just because of her (peace oriented) faith and then just laughs when he realized that he made her cry?

Obviously I'm just speculating, because I have no idea how it went down, but neither does anyone else that wasn't there. If he was being blatantly stereotypical, than yeh, he deserves it. But my favorite teachers were the ones that kept it interesting by being funny.

It could've been that up until this point the teacher and the student had the kind of relationship that allowed the teacher to make occasional jokes at the student and to allow the student to do the same, and he just unknowingly took it to far.

Once again, all speculation, just being the devil's advocate.
