An angry mother claims her daughter was given a class assignment to choose a hero to write a report about and she chose President Donald Trump. When the project was turned in, the teacher wouldn’t accept it.
Bella, 11, felt her choice of Trump as a hero was a no-brainer, and she would ace this assignment, but the teacher brought her political feelings into this situation and denied the student from choosing the 45th President of the United States. The teacher blamed Trump for spreading negativity across the nation and much more.
It seems the guidelines for this project didn’t include boundaries such as staying away from President Trump, so Bella thought she was on track to following the project’s instructions.
When sixth-graders at Samoset Middle School were assigned to pick a hero on whom they would write a report, 11-year-old Bella Moscato said her choice was a no-brainer.
“Donald Trump is my hero,” she says.
The 45th U.S. president has been Bella’s idol since she was 8 years old, which is why she dressed up as Trump for a third-grade class project. But Bella says when she told her sixth-grade teacher that Trump was her choice for the hero project, the teacher nixed the idea.
Bella says her teacher said Trump “spreads negativity and says bad stuff about women” in front of another teacher and students in the class. The teacher told her to pick another hero. [News 12]
Bella’s father spoke out against the teacher’s actions: “My daughter’s hero is the president of our country. I can’t believe that anybody in the school would tell my daughter that that guy can’t be her hero.”
Kenneth Graham, Sachem Central School District Superintendent, gave this statement after the incident: “It is not accurate that this student was told that they were not allowed to conduct research or report on any individual for a school assignment, including President Trump. To the best of our knowledge, by choice, the student is still conducting their project on President Trump.”
If the teacher was allowing free thinking, that child should be allowed to pick anyone they wanted as their hero, no matter if you or anyone else like the human being. Now, if you wish to instruct narrow-minded children, with the “think only like I think” approach, which unfortunately where public schools have gone, then the teacher should have made the assignment more selective of people.
What would be your opinion if a child’s hero were their mom or dad, who was in Jail for something? Free thinking is gone. These kids are becoming lazier and entitled because of people like this.
I thank God every day I taught my daughters to use their brains and not be some hatred spewing person because they lost in an election and can’t get over it, even if it was for only four years.
The “ignorant and unlearned” liberals are so easy to identify by their parroting the fake news medias comments. Reading the liberal comments are truly my comedic relief on a daily basis.
